Most Wanted Ancestors!

(brick wall ancestors )

the following are a list of "most wanted ancestors" being researched by members of the KYBullitt List at Yahoo.  If you know anything about anyone here or would like to add your own "Most Wanted" ancestor email Anne at [email protected] with details.  Especially helpful are names of families they married with because we make special effort to watch for documents that might help with these people.  Knowing "who they hang out with" increases that possibility!
