Looking for information on John R Nigh, born about 1832 supposedly in Hagerstown, Maryland. Said to have come to Owsley County, Kentucky sometime around 1850 and was a school teacher. He was married to Sarah Jane Clark. Several stories surround him. One, he went back east and was never heard from again. Two, was murdered by members of the Clark family. And three, died. His wife is listed as a widow on the 1860 census.
John and Sarah would be my great great grandparents.
Any info would be appreciated.
