Dear Mr. Breeding, My name is Tara Breeding Mobley and I am in the process of tracing my family's genealogy in Kentucky. I have gotten so far and it seems I am at a standstill in trying to locate information on my gg grandfather Milton (Mike) Breeding who was African American. I do know according to census reports that he was born in Kentucky and he married Polly Pounds (whose family came from VA (Halifax County). I have located my gg grandmother's (Polly) death certificate but I can't locate anything on him other than a census report that shows him in the house of a family called Theopolius and a article where my grandmother Polly (whose mother Phyllis), was raised by the Hiser's of Kentucky, talks about Milton (Mike) and the fact that they had 8 children. The towns mentioned were Center, Edmonton, Barren county, and there were a few others but I would need to look the information up. I was told there is a cemetary that holds some of there remains. If you or anyone could help me, I would appreciate it. My other family that lived in Kentucky around the same area was the Johnson's, Hopkins, Richardson's, Frazier's and Ray's.
Please see the article I found on my grandmother Polly: http://www.aagriots.org/kentucky/Metcalfe/pbreeding.htm
Thank you for an opportunity to share a little of my history.
