Research Notes

If he, Michael, was born in Caroline County, Virginia 1784 and then married in Bourbon County, Kentucky 1809 it was a 485 mile trek across the Appalachian Mountains. His bride, Rachel Briggs was born in Culpepper County, Virginia, which is 57.2 miles northwest of Caroline County.

Don't know IF this is important but it is VERY INTERESTING...
But Rachel Briggs was born in Culpepper, Virginia maybe this is how they met???
