Elizabeth, In an old Rockcastle Co Query Forum posting by Myra Vanderpool Gormley, she advised there was some information about a John M Vanderppol in the "Vanderpool Newsletter" IV/4, p 60 which indicates he was born 1783 in NC and removed to Rockcastle Co. KY in 1811; listed as a widower with 1 son in the 1820 census. He married secondly and had Easter, Elizabeth, John M Jr, Cynthia, Stephen, William H., Eliza, amd Josiah. The reason I am interested in Cynthia Vanderpool is in the Rockcastle Vital Statistic Book there is a no name Tanner (male) born 20 Oct 1857 to John Tanner and Cynthia Vanderpool. no name Tanner died 15 Nov 1857 of inflamation at 3 mo. John Tanner and Cynthia Tanner. pob Brush Creek RCK KY pod Bruch Creek Rck, ky.
John Tanner with wife Cynthia are listed on the 1850 census. John is 20 and Cynthia is 15. both born in KY. This is ALL the information I have on Cynthia. However, I have printed info. from homepages.rootweb.com/~sonnyvdp/south1 that has vanderpool info. I have not checked out any of this information first hand, but it might give you a clue. If you find any Tanner info in your research, please let me know. Thanks, Kathy
