I hope this gets to you in reference to Deee Stable, Ky. I have a great-great-great-uncle who is buried there. His name is George Washington Harrison. I looked for the longest time for Deer Stable Kentucky. I just recently received a book from Jess Wilson entitled "When They Hanged the Fiddler." I will quote you the first paragraph of a story in the book: "South of Sand Gap in Jackson County the main highway toward McKee runs for a short distance along a high narrow ridge, from George Felty's or Toley Bishop's to the Deer Stable Baptist Church, or the Sand Gap Christian Church. Thsi high ridge is one of the highest ridges in this part of the county. You are practically on top of the world here." From reading this, I would venture to say that this church is very close to Deer Stable, it may be near the center of the Deer Stable community, your guess would be as good as mine. I plan on making a trip to Jackson County in June to do some research near McKee, Lancaster and Paint Lick.
