I've decided to suspend the posting of current obituaries to this website. Nearly all of the current obits I have been posting for the past several years have been obtained from other webstes, and there seems to be no good reason for me to re-post them here. I have added several useful links to the "Obituaries Page" which I believe will actually provide better service to Carter County researchers. It has never been practical for me to keep this site updated with all Carter County obits and death notices. This new policy shifts some of the burden of locating new obits onto you, the individual researcher, but with regular visits to the links I will provide, I do believe you will have access to even more obits than I could ever post to this website. I will continue to post old obits from all sources. I would also like to extend my sincere thanks to the wonderful contributors who have so kindly submitted obits to our site over the nearly 12 years I have been the site coordinator. I intend to continue adding new research material to our site for as long as possible. John W. Grace 6 Dec. 2014 Obituaries

The full text of "The Archeology of Kentucky" is now available on the Kentucky1491.com website. Carter County is listed as having over 200 sites. Sadly, it appears that most professional archeolgical research in our region is only done immediately prior to the sites being destroyed by construction (AA Highway, Garyson Lake, etc.) Slight concolation as it is, that is still more research than is required prior to the initiation of new limestone quarry mining (none). 22 October 2014 History

Research suggestion. Every Carter County researcher should order a Carter County telephone directory from Windsteam Communications. It's the easiest way to contact people with the surnames you are researching. I have found local residents unfailingly open and friendly, once they know your purpose in calling. You may find new relationships and family stories that you wouldn't have discovered any other way. Remember, not everyone is on Facebook ;>) 10 July 2014 What's New

Morgan's Station Trail travel guide. These pages allow the travelor to re-trace the trails used by the Native American raiding party that attacked Morgan's Station on April 1, 1793. The came from central Ohio and returned theie with their hostages following the raid. This was the last major attack against white settlers on the frontier to take place in what is now Kentucky. Tecumseh is believed to have been among the raiders. This guide is a first draft and as it stands is of primarily of interest to those who have already read Harry G. Enoch's book "In Search of Moragn's Station". I will be adding material to these pages on a regular basis in the weeks ahead.5 July 2013 Trail

Scientific article discussing the types of clay found in the Olive Hill area. Pretty esoteric stuff, but readable if you have an interest in the topic. Research is ongoing to determine if clay peculiar to the Olive Hill area was used to fashion pipes and other artifacts by Native Americans residing in Ohio. This paper does not directly address that issue. 16 May 2014 The Original People

Affidavit of Descent for Martin Snider. Martin was one of the earliest large land owners in Carter County. He passed away in Ohio, but while a resident of Kentucky bought and sold thousands of acres of land in and around Carter County.

I just finished reading "The Long Hunt", the story of the death of the buffalo east of the Mississippi. This topic has always fascinated me so I thought I'd try this book. It starts a little slow, but the author eventually gets into people and geography that are in our area. It contains no direct references to Carter County, but it does refer to the Licking River and briefly, northeast Kentucky. Still, it does document the surprisingly recent rise of the American bison east of the Mississippi and their eventual extermination from our part of North America. We came surprising close to wiping out all bison throughout the western hemisphere. 27 Feb. 2014Books

Link to a very technical, yet interesting geological analysis of the Carter Caves area.

Will of Philip Dean McKenzie (2000). 5 Feb. 2014 Wills
A number of deed images have been added. Use your browser "Find" to search for names of interest. Deed Book 191, Page 632 is notable. It's for properties with a value in excess of $27 million and encompassing a considerable part of northeast Kentucky. Kind of makes you wonder what's happening there. Deed Book 13 Page 430 reserves oil and gas rights to 10,100 acres of northern Carter County. Wonder if my neighbors know their farms can be fracted and they won't be able to do anything to stop it. 5 February 2014 Deeds
Probably the earliest deed for the Carter County area: August 2, 1794. The deed (aka "indenture") is difficult to read, but the accompaning tract map clearly shows the Little Sandy River, Tygarts Creek and several branches. Several deeds in the Carter County Courthouse refer back to "Graham's Survey", notably my own farm's in the Lick Branch area of northern Carter County. There may have been other "Graham Survey's" which have not survived. Also, I'm not sure how these tracts relate to the later "William Grayson Lands" which appear to be the earliest lands actually inhabited by European migrants to Carter County. 3 February 2014 Deeds
