History of Kentucky, Edition 3
This edition covers these counties: Allen, Barren, Breckenridge, Edmonson, Grayson, Hardin, Hart, Larue, Meade, Metcalfe, Monroe, Simpson, and Warren Counties, Kentucky
This book was originally published in 1887 as The History of Kentucky, Edition 3 by F. A. Battey Publishing Company. The authors are: J. H. Battle, W. H. Perrin, and G. C. Kniffen. A total of nine editions or book volumes were published of The History of Kentucky, each covering a completely separate group of counties. Each book volume was titled by the publisher as an edition rather than by volume number. As a result, each volume is entirely different but are titled as edition 1, edition 2, edition 3 rather than as volume 1, volume 2, or volume 3, etc.
Section One: Histories of each of the thirteen counties in the central Kentucky region: These county histories are very brief, averaging one or two pages each. (Note: The original 1887 edition of this book included a history of the state Kentucky which is not included in this reprinted book.)
Section Two: Family Biographies of the central Kentucky region: This is the vast majority of the book and includes 1192 family biographies. More than 10,000 individuals are made mention of throughout the text. This is a rare and very valuable reference with a wealth of information for genealogy research of family history in the counties in the central region of Kentucky.
Very nice, like new condition.
