A basic genealogical reference work on Kentucky, this valuable book contains abstracts of courthouse records for the Kentucky counties of Barren, Bath, Bourbon, Clark, Davies, Fayette, Harrison, Jessamine, Lincoln, Madison, Mason, Montgomery, Nelson, Nicholas, Ohio, Scott, and Shelby. In addition, there is an index to estates and inventories of Revolutionary soldiers. The period of coverage runs roughly from 1725 to 1875, thus embracing the most important period in Kentucky's history. The exhaustive abstracts of wills and lists of marriages, Bible records, and tombstone inscriptions, covering several thousand early Kentuckians, are arranged, for the most part, alphabetically under section headings.
