A 1783 Lincoln Co. KY Court Order that appoints three men John Smith,
Nathan Sellers and James McCune as executors of the estate of Francis McBride,
following his death at the Battle of Blue Licks. Does any one have access
to these court records or can tell me how or who might research these
records for a fee. Trying to determine who Francis's survivors where if
any. I have some reason to believe Francis may be the father of my 4 great
grandfather, Peter McBride, who m. Ann Bowles in Nov. 1800, in Washington
Co. KY. at ST. Rose Church.
