Thank you for posting the General Tye King interview to your website this summer. It has been a pleasure to listen to those two old friends talk about their past.

My ancestors are the George Bunch family from Knox Co Ky. I would like to know what information there is about them. I am also related to the Trosper family too from Knox Co. Both families came to Missouri and settled. Thank you.
