Kentucky Genealogical Records & Abstracts, Volume 2: 1796-1839. Sherida K. Eddlemon. 1998. Softbound, New, Index, 219 pp. Kentucky was part of Virginia until 1792, when it entered the Union as the fifteenth state. Daniel Boone is the most famous of the hardy, brave settlers who helped to transform this wild, frontier land into the beautiful bluegrass country of today. All the early pioneers of Kentucky, however, faced a life of constant danger from Indian attacks and other hardships. In those early days, Kentucky was known as the 'dark and bloody ground.' As in the first volume of this series, genealogical information has been gleaned from a diverse array of sources, including tax and property lists, marriage registers, church and cemetery records, wills and estates, mortality schedules, Negro censuses, military pensions and officer lists. Contents are arranged alphabetically by 22 counties. The Miscellaneous section is much larger than that in Volume 1, including information from a wide variety of out-of-state sources. No attempt has been made to correct the spelling of names, which have been taken as they appeared in the original documents. A surname index is included. Counties covered covered in this volume are: Adair, Barren, Bath, Campbell, Carter, Daviess, Estill, Fayette, Floyd, Fulton, Grant, Grayson, Greenup, Hardin, Lawrence, Livingston, Oldham, Scott, Union, Webster, Whitley, Woodford.
