Carroll County Family Group Sheets

* Note from submitter, Druscilla Hill:

John Backus was my 3rd great grandpa.  He and his family migrated to Kentucky from Madison, Indiana, in about 1860.  They lived on Wright's ridge in a house which was located behind the Wright cemetery.  Later the Backus family moved to the east prong of the Locust Creek.  My great grandpa Jerome built a two-story home and later his son Jesse, my grandpa, had a four room home up the creek.  The four room home is no longer on Locust Creek. It was purchased and moved to another location.

He was born in Prussia and migrated to America in 1851.  According to his naturalization papers found at the courthouse in Madison, they departed Antwerp, Belgium and arrived in New York City.  Their final destination was Madison.  Perhaps they had relatives which lived there.  I have been unable to determine that information.
