Mappy Monday - Warren and Barren Counties

The following map is from the David Rumsey Map Collection - Asher & Adam's Kentucky and Tennessee map of 1874. This shows the area of Warren & Barren Counties in Kentucky, along with adjoining counties Edmonson, Hart, Metcalfe and Logan.

On my Mom's Read side of the family, her grandparents, great-grandparents and their families were in this confluence of counties. It has been somewhat difficult as they were living in the area between Bowling Green and Glasgow, Kentucky, and frequently crossed back and forth between county borders. I thought it would be helpful to have a bigger view of the area where they were living.

In February I wrote about the migration of the Read family from Virginia to Barren County, Kentucky. I also covered the Valentine's Day 1895 marriage of Charlie Read to Mary Alice Cain. I'm going to begin to pick up the story of the Read family and the Whitley family in the Barren and Warren County areas.
