Abstract:

Consists of typed transcripts of legal records, most of which were original circuit court records, from Bullitt, Jefferson, and Nelson counties of Ky. The papers from which these copies and abstracts were made date from 1774 to 1869. A number of depositions bearing dates in the early 1800's contain reminiscences of men who came to Ky. as early as 1774. Many of the papers included in this collection reflect attempts to sort out ownership of land on which claims literally were "shingled." Depositions from earliest settlers describe where and when they came into Ky., their "settling out" at tiny isolated stations, many of which the depondents helped establish in raw wilderness; the buffalo roads they found here, the roads they made, and as time went on the means of telling one from the other. They tell who lived where in their neighborhoods and some of the conditions under which they lived and died. These volumes also include descriptions and documents of the salt trade, the river trade, and trade in general; and documents and depositions concerning slavery, health conditions, the care of the insane, and even one bawdy joke.
