The 2nd Annual Book Fair: Here from Ireland

2013-06-01 - 500 Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. From the Ireland Community or Burdick, in Taylor County. Carolyn Beard Gupton and her daughter Laura. Carolyn is a member of the Adair County Genealogical Society. "We could have joined Taylor, Green, or even Casey with our family backgrounds," Carolyn Gupton said, "But we chose Adair County because of our Beards." They had fun tracing family trees. On one branch, they go back to William the Conqueror. In another, to a distant maternal ancestor who came to America as an indenture servant, and they've become very involved in researching her story. Laura said that many people don't realize it today, but "identured servant" was a euphenism for "slave." They often lived in cruel, horrible conditions," she said. The two are helping out with the an information booth at today's Book Fair. - EW
