    Notes for Malinda Jane Douthit:

    Found a marriage record
    Evander Douthit married Malinda J. Burch Sept. 27, 1856, Hardin, Ky.

    Information from Loreane (Mattingly) Bales (9/2003 and 12/17/2003) is that Ark and Jane are burried in the Poole Cemetery, just up the road from the old farm in Breckinridge County. There are no headstones marking the gravesite of Evander or Malinda Jane, or at least headstones with any markings that are distinguishable. The majority of graves in this cemetery are marked with field stones. Loreane's grandma Mattingly would take her to the cemetery each year, clear out the gravesites for Ark and Malinda Jane. Lorene said that her and her gandma Mattingly would go to the center of the Poole cemetery and clear away the brush so they could leave flowers on each family grave. This is as close to identifying the location of Ark and Malinda Janes graves as I have been able to get. During the warm season, they would have to be very careful as the snakes were really bad, making it a dangerous place to walk around. Lorene stated that her Grandma Mattingly new Ark very well and talked about him..... said that Ark was a short man, dark complected and had scarrs all over his arms and face. Ark would tend to his crops of Tobacco and Apples. One of the apple crops were called Horse Apples and were green with pink stripes, these apples were sour and were used to make applesauce after adding a lot of sugar. Sweet Apples were also harvested.

    Joe and Jimmy Ann Robinson visited the Poole cemetery. It was found to be cleared of all brush and debris. It was vary apparent that the cemetery had been cleaned up. There were many rocks indicating graves, and only a few headstones. Several of the rocks had carvings indicating names, initials and dates.....but most were not legible.

    note - in the 1900 census Malinda lists that has been the mother of 8 children, but only 6 are living at the time of this census. Based on other census and other records, the names of 6 children have been identified.

    The census spelled the name Dowfet. On the index Evander is listed as Abe,
    but on looking at the Census it looks more like Ark.
    I am sending an attachment with a blow up of the names, I hope you can
    read it.
