Migration of Black Women from Kentucky to Cincinnati, OH
"According to the census for 1900, slightly more than 50 percent of the black female population in Cincinnati migrated from Kentucky, followed by Tennessee with eight percent and Virginia with six percent." "The 1910 and 1920 Manuscript Census Records show that for both census periods, Kentucky remained the state of origin of most black women who migrated to Cincinnati."
