Woodford County, Kentucky–originally a part of Fayette County, Virginia, and the parent of at least eight present-day Kentucky counties–was first surveyed and shaped in 1788. Railey’s History takes the county through the nineteenth century, with particular emphasis on the original migrant settlers in the period following the Revolution. The book contains hundreds of family sketches, each with data on the original Kentucky immigrant, his wife and children, and their distinguished and numerous progeny. Also interspersed throughout the book are lists of marriage, census, and military records accounting for the names of an additional 5,000 early Woodford County residents.
