    • ALFRED JUDSON "JUD" DAUGHERTY was born October 2, 1863 in Ohio County,
      Kentucky and married LUELLEN "LUELLA" PALESTINE KESSINGER on February
      4, 1885 in Butler County, Kentucky. Luella was born in October 24,
      1870 in Butler County, Kentucky to Virgil Preston Kessinger and Sarah
      Elizabeth Gilstrap. Sarah and Virgil were first cousins. Virgil's
      mother, Mary Daugherty the wife of Isaac Kessinger, and Sarah's
      father, Christopher C. Gilstrap who maried Anny W. Ferguson Marrs,
      were siblings. Alfred Judson Daugherty died October 4, 1942 in Mclean
      County, Kentucky where he is buried at Hackett Cemetery in Livermore.
      Luella died January 10, 1908 while giving birth. Luella is buried at
      Richland Cemetery in Livermore and has no marker. Three of Alfred and
      Luella's children died before the 1900 cencus, their names unknown,
      one was a twin to their daughter Mahala. I found an interesting
      article in the 1998 summer issue of Fiddler Magazine about a Butler
      County fiddler named Charlie Kessinger. He mentions Alfred Judson
      Daugherty, "I played a tune for a long time before I knowed any name
      for it. My daddy caught it from an old cross-eyed man whistling it. We
      always called it Jud Daugherty's Tune. That was the old man's name.
      One of my neighbors wanted me to bring my violin one night and play
      somewhere. I began to paly it and he began singing right after me.
      'Down in New Orleans,' that was the name of it." Alfred Judson and
      Luella are parents of the following children born in Ohio County,

      Alfred Judson is buried in Livermore, Mclean County, Ky in Hackett Cemetery. Just as you enter the cemetery his marker is the first one on the right beside of a large tree. Alfred's wife Luella Palestine Kessinger is buried at Richland Cemetery just outside of Livermore. She has no stone.... This cemetery lies between 3rd and 4th street and is on a hill... Hackett Cemetery was all grown up in woods when I was growing up and the city cleaned the hill off in the 80's.... Alfred Judson Daugherty actually was living with his daughter Lula Rosa Daugherty and her Husband Clay Davis at the foot of the cemetery when he died. My Aunt Juanita Davis told me that when she was a child she would run by his house when he was sitting on the porch and yell, "Smarty, Smarty, Old Man Daugherty" and he would shake his cane at her and laugh. She actually married his grandson Quay Kassinger when she grew up.... When I was about 8 years old my grandfather, George Davis, told me that there was a pipe at the cemetery and if I yelled, "Who goes there," into it, I would get an answer. He lived near it and followed me when I tried it. Then he wispered from behind a tree, "Just us stiffs," and I ran screaming for Mom. He got a huge laugh out of it and I did not go back to the cemetery for a long time. (Source: Holly Johnson)
