Barbara;

I agree that in the Valley of Virginia, Catholics were as scarce as hens teeth. In early Kentucky, a large number of Catholics from Southern Maryland, were the predominant religion in Nelson, Washington, Marion Counties. Whether they still are is questionable. My wife had more than two dozen Catholic families in her ancestry that included Bevin, Clark, French, Gardiner, Lee, Jarboe, Mattingly, Thompson, Thomas, and Weatherington to name a few.

The 7th Reunion of descendants of Md/Ky Cathollcs will be held in Springfield, Washington Coutny at the end of June this year.

I having a real hard time finding where the McColgins, Vaughns, Moores, Hayes, etc. lived when they married. I suspect that Sarah and Thomas McColgin may have married in Virginia, or like my 3gt grandfather, Thomas Lawrence of Virgina, married in Mason Co, KY before moving on to Butler County. Many families used Mason County as a landing place in Ky.
