I am looking for information on M.G Moore who resided in Harrodsburg, Kentucky, Mercer County, Kentucky. I do not know what the initials stand for. She is the mother of Eliza Moore who married Chesley D. McLahlan, one of the founders of Harrodsburg, Indiana. I know she came to visit her daughter in Harrodsburg, Indiana quite often and she was often the guest of W.B Hughes in Harrodsburg, Indiana. Perhaps the Hughes family was also one of the founding families in Indiana. Thank you.

My great-great granparents were P.B. Collins and Mary J. Clooins of Mercer County, KY. Their daughter Lena Collins Blevins was my great grandmother. Lena married Samuel K. Blevins somtime in the early 1900's. Lena and Sam had three children one, James Ballard Blevins, being my mother's father. I am rather stuck on the Collins' lineage in Mercer Co. I believe P.B. Collins' name was Parrott Ballard Collins. Does anyone have any information on this family in Mercer Co? Lena died in Fayette Co. in 1928 at the age of 35. Her obituary stated that her parents were still alive in 1928.

Thanks,
