This string is about KIRKLAND/COOLEY connections in Mercer Co., KY.
John KIRKLAND (1753-1837) buried in a graveyard that seems to have
belonged to Thomas COOLEY (1790-aft1860). We've been trying to identify
these people.

This is part of our family research that revolves around marriages of
John COOLEY (1793-1844) m. Elizabeth WHITE (1796-1853), he from NC, she
from Mercer Co., KY, family removed to Howard Co., MO.

This is all one family & it's a thicket, not a tree. Gives me a
headache thinking about it.
