Thanks again, Brenda. I didn't know that about Nehemia's death and will.
I am going to copy this and put it in his file.
Is it written where Nehemiah is buried?
Better researchers than I have tried and failed to find Jane's death record
and place of burial. It's consolation of sorts to know there are others who
should be there and cannot be found. I have heard the boundaries changed
many times, but have not been able to comprehend all I read. My people
lived in the Sample, Cloverport, Hardinsburg, and Stephensport area. -- Alice

I have a number of relatives that should be buried in Breckinridge and
cannot find them in cemeteries there.
perhaps they lived in an area that became incorporated into another county
