- Biography / History
- The Burnams, Capertons, and their ancestors had continued to have a profound impact on the history of Madison County and Kentucky. These prominent families had members who fought in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Civil War, and who defended the Western frontier.
- The Caperton family has its roots in the British Isles. The first Caperton's in the United States is believed to be John Caperton who came from Scotland via Ireland to the United States and settled in Virginia. He and his wife Polly (Thompson) had several children among whom was Col. William Caperton.
- William Caperton married Eliza Estill of the Estill family. Her relatives were French Protestant Huguenots who fled France for Ireland and then journeyed to the new world. Col. Caperton became a man of prominence in Madison County and the state of Kentucky. He was a brilliant lawyer who won the respect and admiration of his colleagues. Among their offspring was Col. James W. Caperton, with whom these papers begin.
- Col. James William Caperton, like his father, rose to great prominence in the affairs of the county. He received his law degree from Transylvania University and joined his father's law practice. He was also quite adept at financial matters, amassing a large fortune. the Colonel did not marry until late in life, being nearly seventy before he united with Miss Katherine Cobb Phelps of Madison County.
- Miss. Phelp's family, too, lent itself to the service of the county and the state. Coming to America from England, the Phelps line runs deep into history. The first relative to settle in this country was a George Phelps of Gloucestershire, England who settled in New England. From his line came "many statesman, diplomatists, professors, and men of letters" (Miller). Eventually a John Phelps settled in Virginia and came to hold sizeable tracks of land. He sired Thomas Phelps, who moved to Boonesborough, Kentucky, in 1778. From his children eventually came another Thomas Phelps who married Sallie Cobb and gave birth to two daughters, Katherine Cobb Phelps and Minerva Phelps.
- Minerva Phelps, Mrs. Caperton's sister, married General John Hooe Russel of the West Virginia. This was the general's second, marriage, and he was some thirty years older than his wife. Mrs. Russel gave birth to one son, Albert Russel. Mrs. Russel later married an attorney from Jacksonville, Florida, Frank Jennings. His marriage also produced one child, a daughter named Catherine Jennings.
- General Russel was prominent citizen of West Virginia, who amassed a large fortune as a capitalist. He was not only a successful shipper and merchant, but also served as a trusted advisor to state government officials. Judging from the telegrams the family received upon his death, he was a most loved individual and there was much sorrow upon his passing.
- Col. Caperton died in 1909. Unlike her sister, however, Mrs. Caperton did not remarry. The Capertons had two daughters, Catherine, who died while still a small child, and Mary James, named for her father.
- Jamie, as she was known, married Paul Burnam and linked yet another prominent Madison County family. Mr. Burnam was the son of Anthony Rollins, whose great-great- grandfather, John Burnam, served in the Continental line in the Revolutionary Army. John Burnam had another son, Thompson Burnam, who moved from North Carolina to Kentucky with his wife Lucida Field Burnam,. After moving to Kentucky, he was elected to the General Assembly.
- His son, Maj. Curtis Field Burnam , also rose to prominence. The Major married the daughter of Dr. Anthony and Sarah Helen Rollins. Dr. Rollins was a well respected physician, who built the mansion on Lancaster Avenue known as "Irvington". Maj. Burnam, a Yale graduate, was a well respected lawyer who was appointed assistant secretary of treasury during President Grant's administration. Upon the death of Col. William Caperton, Burnam formed a partnership with Col. James W. Caperton. His son, Judge A. R. Burnam, became a prominent jurist and served as the collector of the internal revenue under President Harrison.
- Judge Burnam married Margaret Sommers and had a son, Paul Burnam. Paul Burnam became an officer of the Southern National Bank and eventually rose to the status of cashier. He and his wife, Jamie Caperton, had two sons, James Caperton Burnam, and Anthony Rollins Burnam III.
- Anthony Rollins Burnam III became an attorney and James Caperton Burnam became a banker and realtor. Both are prominent Madison County citizens. Caperton Burnam married Sophy Carr Mason, and they had daughters, Katherine Burnam, who is married to the prominent author and biographer Charles Bracelen Flood, and Sophy Randolph Burnam, who married Thomas Land.
- As is quite clear, the Caperton/Burnam family line has been and remains a family of influence in Madison County. They have contributed greatly to the history of the community.
- While much of the information of this sketch was taken from the Genealogy Series, the transcribed manuscript of Volume II of William Harris Miller's History and Genealogies (1907- 1918) was a valuable resource in the preparation of this sketch. The manuscript is located in the Townsend Room of the Eastern Kentucky University Library. It is also necessary to note that this is by no means a complete history of the families represented in this collection. The genealogy series houses a myriad of records which Mrs. James Caperton and her sister Mrs. Jennings collected on their family history. This brief sketch is only a cursory introduction to aid the researcher in the understanding the depth and complexity of this prominent Kentucky family.
- Scope and Content
- The Eastern Kentucky University Archives acquired the Burnam/Caperton/Russel family papers in October 1990. The papers were kept for many years in the attic of the family homestead, Amberely, located on West Main Street in Richmond. Due to the complex nature of the collection and since no apparent order was discernible, the Archives staff decided to impose its own order when arranging the papers.
- Mrs Paul (Mary James "Jamie" Caperton) Burnam inherited the papers from her mother and father Col. James W. and Katherine Phelps Caperton. The majority of the papers cover the years 1880-1940 and were primarily assembled by Katherine Caperton and her daughter Jamie Caperton Burnam. The records reflect Mrs. Caperton's interest in family genealogy and history. Most of the materials in the collection concern family matters. However, some legal and financial records of Col. Caperton have survived and add to our knowledge of Madison County history through the perspective of one of its most able lawyers.
- The Burnam side of the family is not as complete as the Caperton side. unfortunately, the papers of Col. Caperton's law partner, Curtis Field Burnam, one of the most prominent persons to have come from Madison County, have not survived expect for a collection of some two hundred letters the Easter Kentucky University Archives had microfilmed from the Western Historical Collection at the University of Missouri at Columbus. Burnam corresponded with his brother-in-law Anthony Rollins, the first president of the University of Missouri, between the 1840s and the 1870s. The letters offer the researcher glimpses into antebellum Madison County politics, the question of slavery, the tumultuous Civil War years, and Curtis Field Burnam's major involvement in post-war state and national Republican party activities, along with much information on personal family and financial matters. The letters, along with the Curtis Field Burnam scrap books, are excellent supplements to the Burnam/Caperton/Russel family papers.
- The photograph series in the Burnam/Caperton/Russel collection is particularly good in showing images of the various family members. Of not is a group of photographs taken October 7, 1907, at the dedication of the Daughters of the American Revolution marker at the original site of Fort Boonesborough. Unfortunately, few photographs of the family residences and property have survived.
- During the initial processing of the collection, the papers of Katherine Caperton's brother-in-law John Hooe Russel, a successful businessman, were found mixed in with the Burnam and Caperton family papers. It was decided to treat the Russel papers as a series within the existing collection. For researchers interested in knowing more about nineteenth and early twentieth century Madison County history, the Burnam/Caperton/ Russel family papers should be used in conjunction with the papers of other prominent Madison County families (Clay, Hanger, Lilly, Wallace and Shackleford) housed in the University Archives Section of the John Grant Crabbe Library.
- The Archives would like to thank the members of the Burnam family, especially Caperton Burnam, who patiently assisted the Archives staff in identifying many items for deciding to donate their cherished family papers to Eastern Kentucky University for safe keeping and permanent preservation. A special appreciation must be extended to Sharon Brown McConnell and Adam Hall for their diligence and persistence in arranging and describing this complex and significant collection.
