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 fou... View more info

George Rogers Clark's fort at the mouth of the Ohio River represented Virginia's physical claim to her western eighteenth century border. It was also the only eighteenth century military and civilian settlement in Kentucky constructed at the command of the Virginia government. First sanctioned by Patrick Henry, then reaffirmed by Thomas Jefferson in 1780, George Rogers Clark built Fort Jefferson as his economic hub and military stronghold for the Illinois Battalion. Continual attacks by the Chickasaw Indians during the summer of 1780, led by a representative from the British southern Indian De... View more info

Brief though the history of Fort Jefferson was, its records provide fascinating and heretofore unplumbed insights to the life of a frontier outpost. Kenneth C. Carstens has brought these materials together for the first time, adding additional data from the extensive collection of documentary material in the archives of Virginia. This book will be of great interest to the prosopographer, the genealogist, and the historian of Kentucky’s earliest settlers. Reenactors who strive for authenticity in their historic costume designs and living history portrayals will find this work particularl... View more info

Until now, only thirty-five persons were thought to have occupied the frontier outpost known as Fort Jefferson. Newly discovered records found in the unpublished George Rogers Clark Papers at the Virginia State Library prove that more than five hundred persons garrisoned, lived, farmed and died in this remote settlement. The economic vouchers and records of George Rogers Clark open a new window on the lives of the people who inhabited this fort. We can reconstruct their activities by noting what kind of cloth they required for their clothing; what provisions were required to outfit a military ... View more info

Roberts recorded this rich collection more than three decades ago.To a people who at that time watched dancing hearth fires more often than television, the adventures of Jack in the land of witches and giants, monsters and beautiful princesses, provided first-class e...

The year 1850 brought a new kind of census. Not only was it the first U.S. Census to name all people in a household on the regular census, but also this was the first time the Agricultural and Manufacturing Census was taken on a widespread basis. Although this second census names only the head of household, often times when an individual was missed on the regular census, he would appear on this census. Unfortunately, many of these have not survived, but they do yield unique information about how people lived. Six of the 46 columns of information have been transcribed. The six are: name of owne...
