The FHL catalog description for this fillm summarizes these records as court records, officials and employees, and probate records. I was reading along in this mish-mash of fairly boring records when I suddenly found 6 pages of records on three Irish immigrants! I've read a good deal of county court records and I have never seen anything like these six pages.
Long ago I gave up realistic expectations of ever finding the origins of my Irish immigrant Keating and Dooley lines: it's just a dream now for me to accidentally stumble on it. Perhaps that's why these records in the middle of very boring, common day-to-day proceedings in Estill County hit me so hard.
Here are my quick extracts of the highlights. Of course, interested researchers must check the original records.

I really do hope that this info helps someone else celebrate this St. Patrick's Day. Maybe there's still hope for me, too....
