Bourbon or Nicholas County, Kentucky?

This is part of a deed appearing in Nicholas County, Kentucky's deed book E on pages 367 and 368 where Augusta and Belinda Newman sell a 37.5 acre parcel in Nichoas County.

The deed indicates that the deed of purchase took place in April of 1815 and was recorded in Bourbon County.

Nicholas was formed from Bourbon in 1799 before these transactions took place. We're working on finding out what's going on and will have an update. There is also some language in the deed that is a little strange regarding claims of previous owners.

One of those previous owners' granddaughters will marry sons of Augusta Newman, but that's another story.

Stay tuned.

We're working on an update
