Woodford County, Kentucky was first surveyed and shaped in 1788. Railey's History takes the county through the nineteenth century. The book contains hundreds of family sketches, each with data on the original Kentucky immigrant, his wife and children, and their distinguished and numerous progeny. Also interspersed throughout the book are lists of marriage, census, and military records accounting for the names of an additional 5,000 early Woodford County residents.
