Kentucky Kindred Genealogical Researh

Samuel and Martha were married March 22, 1827, and had twelve children. There is a family outline showing eight generations. The genealogy information is divided into chapters per generation. They include birth, death, marriage and census records, along with pertinent notes for selected individuals. Obituaries from The Springfield Sun are included. Copies of the original marriage certificates, licenses, bonds, consents from parents, etc., have been added. The book includes death certificates from 1909. Pictures of gravestones from Evergreen Cemetery in Willisburg, Rockbridge Cemetery and Fairview Christian Church Cemetery, all in Washington County, are also in the book. A six page index makes for easy reference. The 179 page book is bound with plastic comb with a hunter green front and back.

Samuel Riley White and his wife, Martha Lewis, were my great-great-great grandparents. I have spent the last ten years researching their descendants, mainly in Washington County, Kentucky, where they raised their family in the north section of the county. Many of their children and grandchildren remained in the same area during their entire lives. Between 1860 and 1870, probably after the Civil War, Samuel and Martha moved to Raccoon Township, Parke County, Indiana. Several of their children moved with them, including Matthew and Nathaniel.
