Central Kentucky MILITIA LISTS 1786

Note: If others review the film and believe the names to be misinterpreted please notify me. I used my best guess in many instances - and marked some of the most questionable with a "?".

The list for Capt. Saunder's Company is also posted along with the Bryan Station list of women heroes.

Capt. Andrew Steele's list is even harder to decipher. It is at 1MMp. 143, and I know it contains Thompson, Patterson, Singleton and Payne. If I can obtain a clearer film I will attempt a transcription.
