About William "Billie" Root Sr.

WILLIAM ROOT- I was born in Laurel County, Ky in 1816.. My father was

JOHN ROOT. He was born in Pennsylvania, came to Lee Co.,VA when a young

man.. There he married NANCY COX, my mother then came to Laurel Co,

soon after their marriage and settled between Laurel and Rockcastle

Rivers. I do not know what nationality but judging from complexion,

form,etc. I think ROOTS ARE IRISH. I married MARTHA COTTINGIM 58 years

ago and we never had a cross word. She lives here with me....
