The Catholic Church Going West

Fernandina Beach Library 25 N 4th St, Fernandina Beach
Join us on 16 May at 7pm at the Fernandina Branch Library Community Room to listen to Bob Frey, who will tell us how he traced his ancestry back to the Catholics who established colonial Maryland, then later migrated to Kentucky and beyond. His ancestors settled the historic, western Kentucky Catholic settlement of Fancy Farm and helped build the St Jerome Church. Frey will discuss his ancestors’ arrival in Maryland from England in the 17th century and subsequent migration to Kentucky in the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
