Research and Writings of Harry Middleton Hyatt

Contributed by
Ed Dolan

I discovered this material after I found a copy in the Kansas City public library of "The Millers of Millersburg" by Harry Middleton Hyatt. This book has been referred to in the KYBOURBO mailing list numerous times. The Miller family was one of the founding families in Bourbon and Nicholas counties. They also intermarried with many of the other founding families, among whom was the Baker family.

At a visit to a local LDS Family History center, I decided to look up Harry Hyatt's name to see what else he might have written, and I luckily found that he had begun a book about the Baker family, but he died before he could publish it. He collected a lot of material, mostly hand written, collected from courthouse records in Ky. and Missouri, and from other contributors. His work was microfilmed by the Kentucky Historical Society, and is also available through the LDS, on 7 microfilm reels. Below I have typed out the description from the LDS catalogue:

Genealogical collection. -- Frankfort : Kentucky Historical Society, 1987. -- 7 microfilm reels : 35 mm.
Microfilm of originals at the Kentucky Historical Society, Frankfort.  See also the papers filmed by the genealogical Society of Utah.
Each roll contains a list of what is in the original boxes but does not indicate a roll number.
Includes information on the Baker, Griffith, Miller and Hyatt families.

"Housekeeping in the Bluegrass"

1875 Cook Book

Edited by The Ladies of the Presbyterian Church, Paris, KY.

Submitted by Darleen Hartley
Researching Walker, Wallis, Oram, Poole in KY

This cookbook, which was edited by the Ladies of the Presbyterian Church of Paris, KY, has several advertisements from local businesses and has a list of contributors with the name of the town in which they resided.  Darleen thought other researchers would find the list of contributors invaluable.  The recipes are arranged by food category and would require viewing each page individually to determine who contributed which recipe.  Due to the fragile condition of the pages, she understandably does not want to do multiple searches that may deteriate the book any further.   However, if a family member would like their relatives recipe they can send a request by email and at some point in the future, after receiving several request, will see what she can find. 

Send request to Darleen Hartley, please include your email address and family members name
