|African-American Info||Welcome to Lawrence County!
Lawrence County lies in the coal fields of the extreme northeastern
corner of Kentucky. Themajority of early settlers to Lawrence County were
stock and came to KY from Virginia and North Carolina. The eastern KY culture
bears much that came down the years from our Scots/Irish
ancestors....warm, friendly folks with a strong belief in God, family and
and I both have strong ties to Lawrence County and shepherding this research effort is a
great joy to us. Lauras parents both came from Lawrence County, having met at
In in Louisa. Laura still has family in Lawrence County. My dad was born and raised on Georges
Creek and Mom came from Cordell. I lived on Georges Creek until I was five
years old. Laura
