I came across your website and it looks great. I am looking for information on Sarah Drake. She married Richard McKinsey on August 17, 1797 in Bourbon County, Kentucky. I know that Richard was on the tax list for 1800 for Bourbon County and that he was at a family members wedding in 1811 in Fayette County, Kentucky. I am looking for any information on this couple. Could you post this to your web site? I wasn't sure what the best way to do it was.
