This home page was created for descendents of Laura Huffaker and Daniel Webster Clay Rector. Much of this information was taken from The Rector's of Wayne County, Kentucky, by Clara Rector Barnes Smart, published in 1975 by Wayside Press. The rest came from public family trees. Please note that some of this information has been documented, some has not. I'm putting what I have found for informational purposes only. As with all genealogy info on the web - don't assume it is true unless you've documented it for yourself.
