In 1824, McCracken county, Kentucky was created out of Hickman County which was earlier part of the Jackson’s Purchase and was named in honor of Captain Virgil McCracken. The information of this volume came from two sources. The first History of Kentucky was written by Lewis Collins in 1882 and the second, KENTUCKY: A History of the State was written by W. H. Perin, J. H. Battle and G. C. Kniffin in 1885. The biographical sketches were contributed by the individual involved and therefore, the accuracy is probably more correct than other sources.

Example:
LORENZO A. PHELPS was born in Naatchez, Mississippi on June 11, 1840. His father, Clark L. Phelps, now a resident of Cairo, Illinois was born in 1816, in Hartford, Conn., where he was reared....etc.
