Reply to "Summer travel"

Not exactly Summer, but a friend and I will be returning to Louisville, KY in September to try and hit some of the bourbon distilleries that we missed last time. That will include a trip to Sparta and the Neeley Family distillery.

Through emails with the owner/operators, it appears we are distant cousins, with my side landing here from Ireland in 1733, and his in 1740. Taking those dates into account, a wild guess might be that the two brothers on my side may have gone the "7-year indentured servitude" route, and paid for the other to come over when they were done.
