Bullitt County Migrations: 
            from Frederick County MD

The following couples are known to have been in Frederick County, Maryland before migrating to Bullitt County and surrounding areas.  In cases where only a surname appears it has been placed there because it is *probable or possible* that that surname in question was in this area before coming to North Central Kentucky but is has not been confirmed/no specifics can be offered.


  If you have any additions or corrections to this project please email Anne.
