I do not have much more than what I gave before -- but I can type out
what I do have. (sorry none of this is in my program yet) The validity
of the information is questionable. Most of the early information came
from a Hancock Book that someone "threw together" in the 1920's. The
dates I can be more exact on as soon as I get my Patrick County Marriage
Records book back from a friend.
