Recently, I have been researching a family who moved to Clay County, Indiana, in the early 1800’s. I have found all of the courthouse-type of records, and also the death certificates that are available.

While looking for the particular family, 3 other family names continue to appear in the records. It seems that these four families spent a lot of time together – children married children, widows married widows.

So, I have begun to look at these 3 other family names as well. One of the families moved to Clay County from Kentucky. Why? Did the other families move from there too? Did they all move together? Who did they leave behind in Kentucky?

Now I will examine in more detail the 3 “new” families, and possibly determine even more about the “main” family.
