      THE TRIPLETT FAMILY emigrated to Virginia about
      1714, or during the beginning of the reign of King George
      I. of England. Three brothers ? Hedgman, John, and
      Thomas Francis ? settled in Westmoreland County, Vir-
      ginia. From them are descended all the Tripletts of
      America. Tradition says that they were sons of Rev. Dr.
      Thomas Triplett, a graduate of Oxford University, some
      time Vicar of Woodhorn in Northumberland, Rector of
      Whitburn and Washington, Prebendary successively of
      York, Salisbury, and Durham, and at the time of his
      death Prebendary and sub-Dean of Westminster Abbey.
      He lies buried in the "Poets' Corner" of that beautiful and
      historic church.

      Ann Triplett, wife of Captain Elias Hord, was born in
      Virginia, November 27, 1774, and died in Mason County,
      Kentucky, March 14, 1866. She was the daughter of
      Francis Triplett, and the grand-daughter of Thomas Francis
      Triplett, Esq., the first of his line in Virginia. Captain
      Francis Triplett, her father, was born in Fauquier County,
      Virginia, about 1728. He participated in the French and
      Indian War, and in the Journal of the Virginia House of
      Burgesses, April 28 and 29, 1751, appears the following in
      regard to him :

      " Petition of Francis Triplett, setting forth that he entered as a Volunteer the Prince William Militia, sent out
      last June for the protection of the Frontier, where in a
      skirmish with the Enemy he received a most dangerous
      wound in right arm, For the cure of which he was at con-
      siderable expense. Praying consideration of the House.

      " Resolution passed. Francis Triplett allowed 55 pounds."

      He subsequently participated in the Revolutionary War,
      and was a captain in the militia of Fauquier County, Vir-
      ginia, from September 2s, 1778, to the close of the war.
      (See "Order-Book" of the Fauquier County Court, 1773-80,
      page 341.) He commanded the Virginia militia at the
      battle of Cowpens, South Carolina, January 17, 1781, and
      for his services received a sword from Congress. (See
      "Life of Daniel Morgan,"' by .lames Graham; Lossing's
      "Field-Book of the Revolution," vol. ii. pp. 431, 433; and
      Irving's "Life of Washington.") Captain Triplett was a
      vestryman of Leei I s Parish, Fauquier County, Virginia, and
      a justice of the peaee. (" Order-Book," Fauquier County
      Court, 1773-80, p. 341, and 1788-91, p. 197.) He married
      Benedite , and died in January, 1794, leaving thirty-
      seven thousand acres of the best land in Kentucky to his
      children. His will, dated September 24, 1794, and pro-
