I have information on a Thomas Bottom, who was my great, great grandfather. His father was Micajah Bottom and we trace the family back to a Thomas Bottom living in Henrico, Va in 1630. Thomas was born Feb 20,1788 in KY and died Jan 10, 1884. He is buried in the Bottom Cemetery on Mackville Road. His 2nd wife was Elizabeth Drew. His first wife, was Jane Thompson. She and Thomas had a son, William D. Bottom who was my great grandfather. Thomas had a brother, Capt. Will Bottom who was born Dec. 13, 1795 and died Dec 7, 1870. He married Polly Sanders Apr 7,1817. Among the children of Will and Polly was Mary A. Bottom who married George W. Carpenter. George and Mary A. had a daughter Nancy (Nanny) Carpenter who was my great grandmother. My grandfather, Henry Allen Bottom and Nancy Carpenter are buried in the Carpenter Cemetery near Perryville Battlefield, KY. Hope this is helpful. I have more info abotu various Bottom family memebers if you would like to have it. Just let me know.
