Like similar books of the era, this volume is filled with some 1408 Biographical sketches of individuals prominent in Kentucky history, with 78 finely executed steel engravings of some of the biograhees.  Many of the Biographies have birth dates in the 1790's and early 1800's and hence many family genealogies are carried well back into the 1730's.  This book contains the names of over 7,000 persons.
