I'm my own cousin?


Descendants of

Peter Huddleston, Campbell County, Tennessee
and
Benjamin Huddleston, Clay County, IN and Whitley County, KY


Both of my grandmothers were born Huddlestons: Dad's mother Nannie Elizabeth on September 2, 1910, in Campbell County, Tennessee; and Mom's mother Fannie Ethel on April 30, 1904, just across the border in Whitley County, Kentucky. Grandma Fannie died in 1949 when my mom was only 12; Mamaw, as we called Nannie Huddleston Leach, died in April, 1996. She always claimed that she was related to the Huddlestons that my other grandmother descended from, but I never paid attention when I was a kid, and never asked her as an adult. You think it isn't confusing enough having grandmothers named Fannie and Nannie Huddleston, try this one: both of their fathers were named James.

My dad's Huddlestons, the Tennessee side, were in the Campbell County area by 1840 and probably earlier. Margy Ball Miles, married to one of my mother's first cousins on the Kentucky Huddleston side, has records that say that the Kentucky Huddlestons came from Clay County, Indiana. We think it likely that the Indiana Huddlestons may have been kin to the Campbell County bunch, but so far there's no proof.
