  1. Linda, Now you did it! The mention of Hopkins County immediately got my attention, then you had to go and toss a TAPP in the mix. Can you tell me who Gertie Tapp's parents were? My husband Mark has oodles of ancestors in Hopkins County, Kentucky. You can email me directly if you wish karenATmiprofgenieDOTcom and we can trade some notes that way if you are interested.
