|“When you are lost, in this world or on the continent of time itself, remember who you have been and you will know who you are. These people were all you, and you are them. I was you before you were born and you will be me after I’m gone. That is the meaning of family.”
Of all the people I want to thank for their help and support for this project, the first is Liz Lester. Her clearheaded assessments, scrupulous reading and tireless on-line searches have helped more than I can say, and this is a far better book for her fine editing job.
Like all genealogists, I owe a great debt of gratitude to the volunteers and employees who staff the many archives and libraries where I conducted my research. I would like to thank the staffs of the Research Center for Beaver County at Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, the Records Center and Archives of Butler County at Hamilton, Ohio, the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History at Frankfort, Kentucky, the Greensburg-Decatur County Public Library at Greensburg, Indiana, the William T. Young Library at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, Kentucky, the Anderson County Public Library at Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, the Mercer County Research Library at Harrodsburg, Kentucky, and the Hart County Historical Society at Munfordville, Kentucky.
A project as extensive as a family history book is only possible with the help and cooperation of many others, and I would like to thank, collectively, all of those newly found family members who have given their time and effort to sorting through their family archives and copying and sending that information to me. It would be nearly impossible to list everyone, but I would like to name a number of people to whom I owe special thanks: (in alphabetical order) Judy Colgin, Laura Culbertson, Donna Fowler, Diane Froedge, Dorothy James, Pennie Lowery, Polly McCreary, Ann & Jim McCurry, Kathryn O’Gea, Lola Post, Carol Caillouette Riley, Betty Schawe and Jean Utley.

One of the truly gratifying aspects of compiling a family history is the opportunity to meet and often visit with new kinfolk. Regrettably, many contacts were limited to the telephone or email correspondence, but sometimes I had the pleasure of meeting people face to face. In every instance I was made to feel like family, and for that I thank you all.
