KY Color: William Carrol Demumbrunn, ggg grandfather of writer

2016-12-25 - Metcalfe County, KY - Photo by Billy Joe Fudge.
My Great-great-great grandfather, William Carrol Demumbrunn, Lucy Clark's father was born March 18, 1821 in Edmonson County, KY. Of course, Edmonson County was not formed until 4 years later, in 1825. He married Lucy Gholes Wisdom and made his home in Metcalfe County which did not become a county until 1860. He had 11 children, including Lucy Clark, and died in 1886. He was a Preacher, most likely a Circuit Rider.Back in the day churches were small and could not afford a full time minister, so Preachers would pastor, so to speak, a number of churches preaching at a different one each Sunday of the month.
