I have a couple of books that I wish to return to their owner. For a while
I was a member of both the OCHS and OCHGS. During this time one of the
members loaned me these books. Tell me the titles and give me your mailing
address and the books will be promptly returned. I am no longer a member of
either society and have lost the name of the owner.

I'm looking for a marriage record of William Boyd Short, married to
Caroline Wariner or Warren. Their only child, Charles McPherson Short.
On Charles death certificate it mentions his parents names.. The closest
that I can figure out that William probably got married in the late
60's but no later then 1872, because that's when Charles McPherson Short
I have not been able to place William Boyd Short on the 1870 census. So
I want to think that he was married after 1870 but no later then 1872.
Remember Charles was born in 1872.
If you happen to have a marriage record book on hand could you please
check the index. for William Boyd Short and Caroline Wariner or Warren.
If someone could help me out... I am trying to nail down exactly when William Evans came to Owsley Co., KY from Claiborne Co., TN., and when he died exactly. If anyone has any tax lists or will books or anything that could help me out, I would really appreciate it. In 1850 he is listed on the census in Claiborne Co., TN. 1860 he is in Owsley Co., KY. He appears to have died before the 1870 census.
