Lived in Livingston County KY then Caldwell County was formed from that part of Livingston. Trigg County was then formed from that part of Caldwell in 1820, hence my GGgf Johathan living in Trigg after 1820. In the following Court Documents, I will show how I conclude that WILLIAM KILGORE is the father of my ancestor JONATHAN KILGORE.
