Thanks for the information Bob. There is not anyone specific that I am wanting to ask about as of yet. I just really wanted more information about the area and what brought people there. When I figure out exactly which of my family members arrived in Pulaski Co. first there may be more interest in that person.
My Great Grandfather was born in Somerset or maybe Acorn. He was Claude Whitaker 1905-1993.
His father was William Pryor Whitaker 1873
His father was William Henry Whitaker Jr 1850 married to Susan Pointer
