Madison County, Kentucky, Court Order Book A, 1787-1791, Jackie Couture


1 Madison County, Kentucky, Court Order Book A, 1787-1791
Jackie Couture
(1996), 2006, 5x8, paper, index, 158 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
During this time period, Madison County included all of the present-day Clay, Jackson and Owsley Counties and parts of Breathitt, Estill, Garrard, Lee, Leslie and Rockcastle Counties. This collection of abstracts is largely but not solely based on the Minute Book, which was the record used to take notes while court was in session. The Order Book, which is a clerk's copy of the Minute Book and is kept in the vault room at the courthouse, contains some information which the Minute Book does not. To be sure that no detail was overlooked, Mrs. Couture uses both sources. Examples of the matters found within these records are the exchange of deeds in property sales, lawsuits, road surveys, establishing care for orphans and the marking of livestock, among others. The book contains a glossary to explain some of the legal terminology which is used. Also, all names are indexed except for justices of the peace, and subjects are indexed except for roads. The author has added punctuation for easier reading and to clarify sentences, but any incorrect spellings have been left as they appeared in the original.

Madison County, Kentucky, Court Order Book B, 1791-1801, Jackie Couture


2 Madison County, Kentucky, Court Order Book B, 1791-1801
Jackie Couture
(2000), 2006, 5x8, paper, index, 320 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
During this period Madison County included all of present-day Clay, Jackson and Owsley Counties and parts of Breathitt, Estill, Garrard, Harlan, Lee, Leslie, Letcher, Perry and Rockcastle Counties. Settlers rushed to this verdant area of the Kentucky frontier once the turbulent times of Indian wars and the American Revolution were past. Perhaps your ancestors' names can be found among the likes of Daniel Boone and William Clark! The civil matters found in these records include the exchange of deeds in property sales, lawsuits, road surveys, establishing care for orphans and the marking of livestock, among others. The Minute Book that was used as the basis of Madison County, Kentucky, Court Order Book A, 1787-1791, ended in August of 1792. From that point on, this book is an abstract of the clerk's copy of Court Order Book B. All entries have been included, but they are not an exact transcription. Any material that appears in the Minute Book, but not the Order Book is printed in italics. No civil suits were recorded in the County Court after September, 1792, but appeals were heard throughout this time period and are noted.
