I am helping my husband, Mike Shingler, research his genealogy. Mike is the
great-grandson of Martha 'Patty' Caudill, daughter of Robert Caudill and Elizabeth
'Betty' Brashear of Perry County, KY. Unfortunately we cannot figure out who
Mike's great grandfather is and so I am turning to people that may know something more
- perhaps because of a story/rumor passed down or some kind of written information that I
have not been able to find on the internet. I have listed a time line of events below -
please, if you know of any information or know of someone else that may have some
information, will you please let me know? It is very important to my husband and I to
find out who his great grandfather is!
