Apparently there was a group migrating from VA (Amherst Co.?) to Franklin Co (now Anderson), Kentucky around 1805.
Joel Thacker (1777, VA) and wife Sarah Buford (1780, VA) [Deed indicates arrived in ,Franklin, Ky, in 1807] Their son, Alfred Thacker (1804, VA) Edward Martin (1804, VA) [Family connection:Edward's daughter Catharine married Alfred's son John B}
John R Martin (1803, VA) and farm neighbor John Martin 1780, VA) (his father?)
Does any one have history, record, or story about such a migration?Perhaps one of the Wilderness Trail groups?I know there were a lot of folks migrating into Ky about this time, perhaps with Revolutionary War land grants.
I am mainly trying to trace my 3g grandfather John R Martin back to Virginia, looking at some of his neigbors in Anderson County for clues.
