Co. Ind. James G. WINDER was born in Bucks Co. PA. in 1794 1794 and was
in Hardin Co. KY. in 1820. The writing on the marriage record is not legible,
this is the reason for the different spelling of Cahoe, it could also be
COHOE. Any help would be appreciated. I am not sure where the Cahoe Family
migrated from probably Maryland.
