Significant numbers of Marylanders migrated to Kentucky after 1775, and played an important role in the settlement of Kentucky during its first fifty years (1775-1825). This book was compiled as an aid to genealogists searching for Kentuckians of Maryland descent. A variety of primary and secondary resources were used to compile this volume: Revolutionary War pension abstracts, land records, marriage records, cemetery records, newspaper advertisements, queries from descendants, genealogical journals, etc. Approximately 900 surnames are covered. An every name index adds to the value of this work.
