  1. I am looking for a death record of my gggrandmother, Mary “Polly” Waters Proctor. She died prior to the 1870 census in Webster County Kentucky. Any help would be greatly appreciated

  2. I have just finished reading the book Widder’s Landing by Eddie Price. When is saw your post about Ephraim Mclean Brank, I sent it to Eddie. He said he used Brank as the model for the main character in his book, Craig Ridgeway. Great book. Eddie and I are both in the Sons of the American Revolution.

Any thoughts?
