Fort Boonesborough Settlers

"Bluegrass Roots," published by the Kentucky Genealogical Society, reprinted an article by H. Thomas Tudor about the "Early
Settlers of Fort Boonesborough." The article was published in Volume 5, No. 1, p. 1-14. The bibliography was published in a
later issue. The references are reproduced here. I DO NOT know where to obtain these references.

I typed and sent this list to several internet listservers in 1994; I notice that it is being used at several websites [which is OK].
