Lincoln County was created in 1780 and named for General Benjamin Lincoln a Revolutionary War veteran from Massachusetts who was Secretary of War for the Continental Congress from 1781-1784. It will be noted that over fifty-five other counties in Kentucky originated from this one county. This volume of the history and biographical sketches of the county are taken from two sources, History of Kentucky by Lewis Collins in 1882 and KENTUCKY: A History of the State by W. H. Perin, J. H. Battle and G. C. Kniffin in 1885. These brief biographical sketches were submitted by the families themselves, therefore, they are more accurate than other sketches.

Example from this volume:

“JOSEPH McALISTER - deceased, was born in 1806, in Pulaski County, Ky. His father, who was of Scotch parentage, was Robert McAlister and was a native of Virginia, and a Baptist minister, the maiden name of his mother being Rachel McKenzie, who was also of Scotch ancestry. etc...etc...
