Handley, Glenn, Brooks Family Research

I am just starting research on our Handley and Brooks family lines, and am trying to complete our Glenn family research. Would like to hear from anyone researching any of these families:

Capt John Handley, early settler and land developer, rec'd large land grants for military service, brought in large number of settlers to Nelson County area

David Glenn. Surveyor with Fincastle Survey Party of 1774-1775, settled in Nelson Co (tax lists, land records etc), justice of the peace in Ohio Co 1799, bur in Ohio County before 1815 (may have been in KY since 1775/6, probably never moved, just county reorganizations) May be a brother of Joseph Glen of Severn Valley and Hardin's Settlement, Nelson County and/or William Glenn, who d after Oct 1796 in KY.

Nancy Brooks, married David Glenn about 1782/83, probably in Nelson County. She sold land on Mill Creek, Nelson County with David Glenn in 1792; this appears to be land she inherited, perhaps from her father (maybe military land grant?). I am looking for her parents, siblings

Does anyone have a Nelson County Marriage Book to see if a marriage record exists in Nelson County? I got a lot of information for Ohio-Daviess-NcLean Counties from the West-Central KY Family Research Association of Owensboro. What is the best source of information for Nelson County, besides the Court House? Where is the best library collection? Is there a Nelson County Historical Society?

I would appreciate your advice on researching in Nelson County. Thanks much.
