African-American Info Welcome to Lawrence County!  Lawrence County lies in the coal fields of the extreme northeastern corner of Kentucky. Themajority of early settlers to Lawrence County were from Scots/Irish stock and came to KY from Virginia and North Carolina. The eastern KY culture bears much that came down the years from our Scots/Irish ancestors....warm,  friendly folks with a strong belief in God, family and country.Laura and I both have strong ties to Lawrence County and shepherding this research effort is a great joy to us. Lauras parents both came from Lawrence County, having met at Dee's Drive In in Louisa. Laura still has family in Lawrence County.  My dad was born and raised on Georges Creek and Mom came from Cordell. I lived on Georges Creek until I was five years old.  Laura and I both love Lawrence County! We love visiting and we love researching our Lawrence County ancestors.
