Kentucky 1846

it's only fair for me to add Kentucky to the list --thus completing the list of 1846 known U
in the southeast - from Virginia to Mississippi . Louisiana and Texas and those west of the Mississippi River might be considered south (and since D.B. Clayton preached in Texas, it could indeed be the south), but I figure anygoing west of Mississippi is wild west! sr.
