WAYNE CO, KY - From census records in MO in 1880, I found my ancestor, Peter HOLDER with wife, Henrietta and six children born in KY. Descendants of my family have said this family lived in WAYNE COUNTY. I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has information regarding the HOLDERS who might be listed in the 1870 census. I also understand that KY has a cross-reference of counties that might show the HOLDERS. I have not been able to track them down. I sincerely appreciate any information or direction someone can give me in my search. Regards, Jo Hughes, Seattle

My great grandfather Burris Allen REED born in 1808 was married to Matilda THOMAS in Wayne County in 1827. She was the daughter of John THOMAS who also had daughters by the name of Mahalia and Pamela. Pamela married a DEHART.
