Hello,

I am not from Kentucky, and I have never visitied, but I recently found out I have ancestors from Prosperity, Kentucky. I have not been able to find much information on this small community, so I am wondering if anyone here can help me.

I am under the impression that Prosperity is a very small community and not a city. Is this correct? Which city is it a part of? Where would I look, or who could I contact for records from late 1800's - early 1900's?

Thanks.

Hello. Search for the Edmonson County Kentucky genealogy website. There should be some information on Prosperity or at least someone who you can contact. I know the community was located in Bee Spring on Salem Church Road. All that's left really is a concrete porch from what used to be a store. Good luck!

Thanks, EdCoHistory! I will look into it.

@Hey: My ancestors were the Curnutte Family. Do you know of them by chance?

If not, could you give me some information about Prosperity and what Salem Church road is like? I would really love some photos if possible.

I would be happy to share an email address with you if you would like to get in contact with me.
