A History of Muhlenberg County [Kentucky]. Otto A. Rothert. Paperback, (1913), 2014, 200 Illus., Index, 520 pp.
This volume pertains principally to the history of Muhlenberg County from its beginning in 1798 to the year 1875, but is extended more or less briefly in some practical aspects to 1910. Mr. Rothert relied heavily on numerous interviews with every "oldest citizen" in the area, and from them and some of their children and grandchildren he gathered materials from which much of this work was produced. Woven into this narrative is information discovered from existing records regarding landmarks, county boundaries, education, participants in the War of 1812, the Mexican War, and Muhlenberg in the Civil War, various industries,etc. In addition to the biographical sketches, there are more than 200 photographs and illustrations contained in the book.
