My grandpa was a Joseph from Leslie County.. His name was Levi Joseph... mother Rebecca Boggs... father Nathaniel "Than" Joseph. I have heard stories that my grandpa's uncle, George Joseph, was a witch... I've seen George's grave marker... It is turned to the west with a pentagram engraved on the top part above the name (which is written in Latin).

I've heard many stories on "witch George". Actually a friend of my moms send me a story about him that he is putting in a book he is writing. And yes the Judith Shell I was talking about was married to Zallie Shell.
My great grandpa was William Bill Shell. He did have a brother named Brad. They always told me that Brad handled snakes and fire. (something to do with church???) I am trying to find out if it is the same Brad and William that you are talking about. If it is, I will get some info for you. If I can.

i have alot on the bradley shell line,if you need help let me know,i have that line going up to 1700 i can probley go farer up if you need me two,if his dad was henry and henry dad was nicholas,and his dad was solomon then that probley the right family, i merge my family tree with anstory.com and there info is not alway right
Bradley Shell was a snake handling man and he moved to Harlan co,, mom thinks his wifes name was nellie she died years before bradley they attended a church in bledsoe, or big laurel... bradlley passed away in the 90s if my information is correct... and judith/judy shell was married to Zallie. IM just wondering was zallie a brother to Poe shell who was married to alta day? her sister was elvie or elva, married to hayes lewis? they are from cutshin
I am from Leslie County and I have lived on Cutshin all my life. My grandmother was juda hendrix baker and her sister married a shell. They lived up in big rock. He passed away when I was about 4 or 5 and her sister lived til I was about 7 or 8, we used to go visit her all the time but I cannot remember their names. If it wasnt so late tonight I would call my grannies only living daughter and find out their names for you but I promise I will find out their names. I wanna say RAY OR HENRY. I cannot remember my aunts name I am 30 so it has been 25 years but I bet I can find some things out for you, it may take me a day or two but I will post it to you on here when I find out.
