My heritage stems mostly from the Ohio/Hardin/Logan/Muhlenberg Co. KY area and the Warrick/Boonville/Newburgh area of IN.

Our family came to the U.S. from England and settled in the areas of Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland, and North/South Carolina. When the original 21 families came to settle in Ohio County, this brought some of our ancestors from the east.

I am interested in finding family members from my husband's heritage including James/Long/Johnson/Rogers/Crittenden/Templeton/Newman/Welborn/Penrod
Thompson. They are primarily from the Ohio/Logan/Muhlenberg area of KY.

I am interested in finding family members from my Dad's side including Addington/Purdue/Thompson/Work/Swab/Coffee/Palmer/Cain/Rhoads/Barnard/
They settled mainly in Ohio Co. KY and the Warrick Co area of IN.

I am interested in finding family members from my mother's side including Nacke/Richardson/Nichols/ Wooldridge/Noe/Martin/Utterback/Hicks/Lawson/

The Nacke family is from Ehrson Germany along the Rhine River. This ancestry is well documented and fairly complete. The members of the other clans are mainly from Hardin/Grayson/Ohio counties.

I am currently trying to add photos and memorials of family members. I am asking anyone who wants to use my photos to get my permission first please. FYI from Find-A-Grave..."The copyright of all photos posted to Find A Grave remains with the original submitter. No use of photos for any other website or personal use is permitted without the prior consent of the original submitter."

A widely memorized poems in 19th-century classrooms was Thomas Gray’s “Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard,” a lengthy meditation on death: “The boast of heraldry, the pomp of pow’r,/And all that beauty, all that wealth e’er gave,/Awaits alike th’ inevitable hour./The paths of glory lead but to the grave.”

Thank you to all the generous folks who have posted memorials, photos, and taken photos for me.
