Greetings to all from sunny Texas, ( A little too sunny )
Once again I turn to all my friends in research land. I am looking for the
lyrics to the "Ballad of John Bolyne" as my father spells it. I know Merle
Travis recorded a version of this "traditional" Appalachian song. What I
need is the lyrics. If anyone has them I would appreciate it very much if
they could be shared.
Regards, and Happy Hunting,
R. Edward Vires

There seems to be two families of Hills in Owsley from abt 1850 to 1880 or so.
The one Preston Hill come from TN and the other WM P come from NC. Does anyone
have descendants of these two families? Birth or death records on these two
families. I'm mainly interested in the WM P Hill.
Does anyone that has marriage records for Owsley Co., willing to send me a copy
of the Hill marriages up to abt 1900? The first Hill seems to be Wm P b abt
1816 NC and m Nancy Hargis dau of John Louis Hargis and Nancy Weddington. James
A Hill b 1838 NC m Anna F Beatty. May be others. I would so much appreciate it.
