There are few people that grew up in Mt. Lookout who in some way or another are not related to Bartholomew Ramsey. This was put in print in 1933 and was compiled by J.C. Ramsey. I have read a little of this and found some good information about several of my ancestors such as Elizabeth “Letty” Ramsey Legg and William Legg. I hope you will find this interesting.

Here is Stumps and Stones which refers to some of the pioneers of the community. I personally don’t know where this originated. Perhaps someone can help me out with this.

I am really unsure where these documents originated. You will see that it starts out with a will for Thomas Legg dated 1808. There are several pedigree charts and handwritten notes throughout. I did find a small error referring to my father as Emory George Kincaid. His middle name was Garfield. This might explain some of the errors I have found lately with other pedigree charts showing up with the middle name incorrect.

Update: This file has been compressed and made searchable.
Here is the McClung Genealogy by Rev. William McClung dated September 1, 1904.
I was unable to compress this file and make it searchable so it is quite large. I will try to make the file more manageable when I find time.

I really like this old photo. I’m hoping I can enhance it and get it printed and matted. It has really got me thinking about it though. I don’t remember hearing much about it as a kid. Of course it was way before my time. But then again, I would have probably just not have been interested anyway.
Other than the name does anyone know any history on this bridge? I know where Shawver’s Bridge Road is in Fayette County and am assuming that it was somewhere near the location I spotted below:
Of course that is just my guess based upon extending the road in Fayette County. If anyone knows any information I would love to hear it.

Here is another publication from Legg’s Press. I’m not sure of the date. The title page says “A few historical records relative to Mount Lookout and other communities including Anecdotes of the Pioneers by Crosby McClung and Some Old Records by W.D. Halstead. The rest being by W.C. Legg”.
