Campbell County Courthouse Alexandria, KY Will of William DeCoursey/DeCourcy was found while searching the Alexandria Court House in Campbell County, Kentucky, on June 22, 2004.  Never found the original, it was re copied in Will Book C, and is not listed in the index in the front of Will Book C.  It was a fluke that I found it, Edward Porteus Ball one of my other grandfather's will was listed on page 51, and after I was done making copies, I looked at pages going forward knowing that William DeCoursey died in 1844 and the dates were close.  Then I saw the name DeCourcy and thought he or the second William were being witnesses to another will.  When I realized there were three pages with the name, I looked closer.  I re check Dr. Adam's work and notes, and he had said there were no DeCoursey/DeCourcy's listed in Will Book C.

Bracken County Courthouse, Brooksville, KY Found original will of George Mains, Mary Mains and settlement of estate (Rev. Peter Mains helping) with the help of Rosemarie Bonwell Pell, author of all the excellent research books that are being published by Bracken Co Historical Society. (She is using original records to publish her work)
Pendleton County Courthouse, Falmouth, KY Found marriage records of Mains, Lewis and land records for Lewis Lewis and George Lewis.

All record books that have alpha for a book number are at Alexandria Court house.  Record Books that are at Newport Court House are all numeric.  Dr. Adams book says differently. This was clarified for me when I visited the Newport Court House looking for the same records Dr. Adams had in his notes June 2004.
