  • Notes 
    • James Perry VanHook, son of Samuel VanHook and Isabella Cox was born 6 February 1823 in Pulaski County, Kentucky. He was a farmer in Lincoln and Pulaski Counties.

      James married first Elizabeth Singleton 8 September 1845 in Lincoln Co., Ky.
      They had 8 children. James and Elizabeth are mentioned in the settlement of
      James' father's estate in 1873 [Pulaski Co., Ky. Deeds, volume 27, page
      296]. Elizabeth was born 6 January 1827 and died in 26 July 1876 at the age
      of 49. She is buried in the Higgins cemetery on Bull Road in Pulaski Co.,
      Ky.

      James married second Mrs. Sicily Jane Ballou 6 March 1880 in Pulaski Co.
      [marriage bonds, book 144, page 146]. This was the second marriage for both
      of them, and Mrs. Ballou was 53 at the time. They were married at the
      bride's house by W.S. Taylor. The witnesses were Fountain Vaught and Samuel
      VanHook. Sicily Jane Ballou was born 6 February 1827 and died 20 August
      1918. Her first husband was Jesse Ballou. She is buried in Freedom
      Cemetery on North highway 1247 in Pulaski County, Ky. One of her children,
      David S. Ballou is also buried there.

      James must have divorced his second wife for he married third Barthina Hart
      24 August 1897 in Pulaski Co. [marriage bonds, book 27, pages 80-81]. This
      was the third marriage for Barthina also, she was 54 at the time, being born

      The surety on the bond was D.A. Davis, and the witnesses were M.P. Haruelton
