“We have been involved with Woodford County for over 30 years. Our primary purpose for organizing was to restore the tomb of General Marquis Calmes and his wife Priscilla. We completed that project in 1990. We are thrilled to help with any project that preserves the Calmes Family history for future generations. General Marquis Calmes IV (1755-1834) is my 4th great grandfather, and I have a son named Marquis.”

“The history of Woodford County is truly rich and filled with many interesting stories. The history of Midway College, its founders and its students plays such a unique role in the county’s history that we could not imagine a documentary without the institution’s involvement.
