1899

When we visited Hodgenville, KY on a genealogy research trip, we were fortunate to meet Carol in the LaRue County Kentucky Genealogy Society and the great staffers in the LaRue County Public Library. All of these fine folks were so instrumental in guiding our travels through the county roads and through the cemeteries there.

The 1899 map above was a key find, charting the location of farms in the area listed by the names of the landowners in 1899. So many of the names in the county were familiar to us from our family tree. Seeing where they lived made these ancestors come alive once more!
