Great attendance at Bart Cain lecture at ACPL
Bart Cain's lecture on the infamous Micajah and Wiley Harpe. June meeting will feature Darlene Campbell, speaking on the Melungeon people (Yes, there are many of Melungeon descent - now so proudly so - in Adair County, KY - CM)
By Mike Watson
Bart Cain brought an excellent program at the Monday, May 7, 2018, meeting of the Adair County Genealogical Society at the Adair Public Library! Thirty-four listened with rapt attention as he recounted the life and times of Micajah and Wiley Harpe, the infamous Bloody Harpes, who criss-crossed this region of Kentucky frontier in the 1790s, leaving a wide path of destruction and death in their wake.
Next month, at 5pmCT, Monday, June 4, 2018, we will host Darlene Franklin Campbell at the Adair County Genealogical Society regular meeting at the Adair County Public Library, 307 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY. She will speak on the Melungeon people. More on that very soon. --Mike Watson
