John Botkin, Joseph's father, was born in approximately 1781 in Pendleton County, Virginia. It is not known who his parents were, but is is thought that he had a brother, Hugh. John married Esthma Haile on April 4, 1805 in Knox County, Kentucky. She was born approx 1789 in Virginia. Apparently they moved to Kentucky before having any children, as all children found in the census stated that they were born in Kentucky.
This information was gleaned from a check of the 1850 census of Knox County, Kentucky. All children were living side by side except Ahart, Joseph and Lewis.
Joseph and Lewis were not found in Knox County. However, we find both living in Laurel County, Kentucky in 1860. This concludes all information learned about John Botkin to-date.
