Fellow Bourbon Co. Researchers
This the final updated list of Revolutionary Soldiers on the tablet at
Bourbon Co. Courthouse. This is a combined list of what I have, what was
posted earlier and a list that was sent to me by Ms. Kenny Roseberry at the
Fox Library at Duncan Tavern. I have listed the names exactly as they appear
on the tablet. I checked and double checked the list and I am sure all
spellins be correct. There was a few names that were spelled different on
the list I got from Duncan Tavern and what is actually on the tablet. I have
put the spelling that was different on the Duncan Tavern list in
parenthesis. ( just in case the tablet was made wrong ????) I will leave it
to you to decide which is correct.
Note the new names at the bottom.
