Lee County, Kentucky, 1880 Annotated Census, Including the 1880 Mortality Schedule


This volume chronicles the people of Lee County, Kentucky. Lee County was formed in 1870 from Breathitt, Estill, Owsley and Wolfe Counties. The 1880 census contained the following information: family number; any children born within the census year; name of each person with their color, sex, age, relationship to the head of the household, marital status, occupation, state of health (if ill or disabled), and nativity (plus birthplaces of mother and father). The author has annotated the census with birth and death dates, maiden names and dates and names of later marriages, using no less than forty-five different sources, including all centennial censuses from 1870 to 1910; Lee County marriage records; newsletters from the Lee County Historical and Genealogical Society; birth, marriage, and death records from the predecessor counties; plus records from private individuals.
