1878 Letcher County Births

Transcribed and submitted by Vickie Stevens ©2001
for Elva & Vickies Letcher County Research Site

Note: This record was 6 ledger pages and with the exception of the first few names, all parents where listed as being born in Letcher Co. I believe this is most likely not the case given the amount of names listed.  So unless another county is listed then the record noted the parent birth place as Letcher.
