Please Note: Francis Family Bible copyright 1861 was newer than some of the recorded facts in many cases. Sometimes the dates are slightly off or faded and difficult to read. Some pages are missing and the information was not replaced.

A Pike County Researcher found information for me, and I've used the Census records and other available sources. I may have mistakes, I do make them, and not all records, even certified information agree.
