Kentucky: A History of a State by Perrin, Battle, and Kniffin

So, the beauty of Kentucky: A History of the State by Perrin, Battle, and Kniffin, 1887, pgs. 975, is that it begins in Virginia in the 1400s, and tracks families that migrated from Virginia to Kentucky. This is a great source for county history, and understanding how the westward expansion happened. Check the index for individual names. The biographical sketches tend to be of wealthy, important white men. Some, with spectacular facial hair.
