Digging Up More Pryors in Kentucky

Posted on by

I found a new trick to turn up more Pryors.  The Kentucky Death Records on Ancestry can be searched by Keywords. When I typed in Pryor it came back with Smiths, Warners, Allfords and all kinds of surnames, but Pryor. I realized that it wasn’t just searching the name of the descendant, but it was also searching out the names of the parents. In most cases the newly uncovered Pryors are daughters whose married surname on census records disguises their Pryor lineage.

Check them out…   I’ve added these Pryors to the census extractions on the Tennessee Pryor website http://www.tnpryors.com/states_census/ky.htm.
