Thanks for the information, John. I have her webpage bookmarked. And
Brenda, thank YOU for all the info you sent me on Nicholas RICE. The weird
thing is I didn't get your original message, only the part below that John
forwarded. I really want to thank you and ask if I was going to buy a book
from Betty Cook, which one did you mean had a lot of references to him?

I do not know if Bettie Cook is on this list or not, but she has moved
the address listed. Her husband has passed away. There are five wonderful
volumes of the Breckinridge County Kentucky Records. She is a direct
descendant of Presley Cummins.
This is the URL to her publications site with new postal address, phone
number and email address. Bettie is a Certified Genealogist, President of
the Tri-State Genealogical Society and a good friend. If you order or
inquire about her books, tell her John West sent you. JGW
