Christian Co, KY -, Volume 2
Turner Publishing Company, 1991 - History - 376 pages
Christian County had published a county history in 1841 by Perin and again another by Charles Meachem in 1930. Both of these histories had a limited biography section in them. Under the leadership of president Lon Bostick, the Genealogical Society of Christian County and the many devoted people of the county at large, gave untiringly of their time and knowledge to compile and have published a third history of Christian County in 1986 which is primarily a family history with much social history. The people responded well with material and the book was getting so large that we had to stop receiving family histories. This left many without the opportunity to get their families recorded. Late in 1990, Lon had a job started and was not complete therefore the Odd Fellows of Green River Lodge #54 of Hopkinsville and Jewel Rebekah Lodge #14 (the auxiliary of the Odd Fellows) met and voted to compile and have published a continuation of Volume I of the Family Histories to be titled Edition I of Family Histories of Christian County.

Mary Sherwood bore Hugh Wilson four children. As Hugh's widow, she married James Kirkman and bore him three children, Mary Thomas Sherwood, and Roger. She survived James and died in Guilford County. I have copies of the original records. She was from Dorchester County, Maryland.
I am not absolutely certain, but according to census data, the information on the Cavanahs seems confusing. I know that William T. is a son a John Henry Cavanah; it is possible that there are two lines of Cavanahs both originating in Northern Christian, or perhaps what the author refers to as Northern Christian eventually became Webster and/or Hopkins, with the Fruit Hill line being located in what is now Northern Christian. If the author had footnoted, any reader could verify the information, but unfortunately, without sources cited, this could just be a fictional story, spun to create a little local history.
