I am actively seeking the very illusive wills or estate administration records for an area currently Bloomfield, Nelson County, Kentucky which was formed from Jefferson Co., KY, which in turn was formed from Kentucky Co., VA, which originated from Fincastle Co., VA.

The records I am seeking are for Benjamin(e) and/or Elizabeth Kelley COOPER. Benjamin(e) reportedly died in that area between 1750 & 1780. I understand that what is now Bloomfield, Nelson County was not formed until the 1780s, therefore I am hoping to find a resource for these records in one of the previously named county's records.

Any/all help will be greatly appreciated.
