Bullitt County Migrations: 
            from old Rowan / Guilford Co. North Carolina

The following couples are known to have been in the old Guilford & old Rowan Co. NC area of North Carolina 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.  Brides are indexed if they came from NC as well.

Most of the NC families seem to have gone first to Shelby Co. KY.  Some had strong roots in Quakerism (even if they were now practicing Methodists or a new denomination) Many branches went northern to places like Orange, Washington, Lawrence Co. IN to be with other family members.  Many of them ended up in Spencer Co. KY after it was created a county.
