From you info, this appears to be another "must see" while we are in KY/VA this summer. What adds to my interest is that my grandmother's side of the family (as opposed the my grandfather's - where the Bryans fit in) is related to the Hite family via the Van Meters. The Van Meter's obviously knew the Bryans/Boones as there is litigation between them. Yet the marriage between these two families did not occurr until much later in Illinios! I wonder if they knew???

I find it all very fascinating and at times wish I could be transported back (only for a VERY SHORT time) just to check it all out.

I'm not only hooked on genealogy, I just love heat, running water, indoor plumbing, etc. I can rough it for a few days, but I wouldn't want that to be a permanent situation, especially with hostile Indians running around. I don't see how they endured it.

Thanks for the info. Am looking forward to taking plenty of pictures and video tape.

Diana
