Some Early Kentucky Records

The following come from various Kentucky records prior to 1850. All come from scans or photos of original records, or courthouse typescripts, or early printed materials. In the case of marriage records, multiple records of the same marriage were sometimes consulted, yielding variations in the data.

Claims from online “trees,” genealogists’ abstracts, and the like were not included. This is obviously nowhere near an exhaustive list.

One thought on “Some Early Kentucky Records

  1. There should be Phipps marriages in Knox & Harlan counties, as well. It’s possible they descend from Zarr Phipps, b by 1808 or so & Didaima ‘Daimy’ Baker, b 1808 (granddaughter of Rev War patriot, Rev Andrew Baker). I’ve read in a couple of your blogs that Zarr (Isaiah?) might be a son of John Jasper Phipps, originally of Wythe Co, VA & migrated to Pulaski or Clay Co, KY. By the way, by car Letcher co is about a 100 mile, mountainous drive from Pulaski Co, which is in lower, central KY.
