I hope this helps I found this today. http://www.montgomerycounty.ky.gov/about.htm
Most of the time trying to find the history of the area helps.
I almost forgot, find the notes of the folks that named towns and also, find what state may have been holding those records. sorry I forgot to add something I don't know if this will show twice. I'm on the Hart - King - Dodge - Hofhiens Hadden line. Yep if they had half of a chance to think they would have moved those records before someone stormed those main places. Today they may be in those caverns down under ground you know about those long many miles long caverns where they keep all our data. Mom used to talk about those. Someday there I'm sure it will all fit on a disk but not yet.
