Welcome to

Adair County,  Kentucky 

Hello, my name is  Suzanne Shephard, and I am the county coordinator for Adair County, Kentucky.  My sincerest gratitude to everyone who has submitted research, photos etc. Please Note, I do not live in Kentucky any longer and can not do research for anyone. If you have any questions or would like to submit research information, you can contact me.


  Special Notes from Adair County...


An Adair County researcher bought a box at auction and there was a photo album in it…it is a real family treasure for someone….the photos appear to be from about 1920-1950, a couple even older, almost all photos have the names written under them. Some of the names are as follows….Rufus Tucker and Millie Tucker, Louella Tucker May, Balard Tucker, Geneva Tucker Campbell, Casey Campbell, Mallie Tucker and Fannie, Jennie and Riley Maxwell, Fostr and Ola Delay, James C. and Bertie Delay, Samuel David and Sadie Delay. As you can see it would be a treasure to someone. I will mail this album to anyone with a connection , they should email me at  none of the photos have a local on them.
