The McIntosh Family of Scott Co. Indiana

Updated November 27, 2006

About Our Family Research

Have you ever lost a loved one and stood by their grave wishing you had known more about them? Did you wonder what they were like, and how they had lived their lives? As I stood by the graves of my grandparents at Sebastians Branch in Breathitt County Ky., these thoughts and more flowed through my mind. I wished I had talked more with them, wished I had ask the questions that now may never be answered. I began my research of our family with much help from two beloved cousins, Debbie and Gary. I thank them for their contribution.
