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

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. It is noted that the entrance road to the park runs through a valley that was once a large cave whose roof completely collapsed. The "Natural Bridge" over Cave Branch creek is a remnant of the old cave roof structure. 21 Feb. 2014 Misc. Links

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

Select Fleming County Civil War-era "Loyalty Oaths": William G. Armstrong; George H. Campbell; George W. Ross; Johnston Ross. I'd never seen nor heard of these Loyalty Oaths before I discovered them in an ancient file case in the Fleming County Court House. These may have been peculiar to the slave states that remained in the Union during the war. In other states, North and South, loyalty was pretty much assumed. In a deeply divided state such as Kentucky, no such presumption could be made. Pity the poor soul who refused to sign a loyalty letter. It may be some consolation to note that it appears only government employees and citizens serving in public organizations were expected to sign one. There appear to be about 60 in all. 28 Nov. 2013 Military Documents

1884 maps of Bath and Fleming County. We have nothing like this for Carter County, but a number of early Carter County families immigrated from Fleming and Bath. IMO, these maps are among the most interesting research documents to survive from the 19th century. They cite scores of residents in each part of the county by name and with a symbol indicating where their house stood. There are also detailed town plats, as well as cemetery, school and church locations. I'll be adding family names from the maps to these pages so they'll appear in search results. A. Royse located. 19 Nov. 2013 Maps

Greenup County Deed Index Book 1 images (1803 - 1867). This index includes deeds related to the area of Greenup County that in 1838 became part of Carter County. 321 images (whew!;)
One particularly disappointing note. Deed Book "A" is missing from the Court House. This is the book containing deeds signed by the famous frontiersman, Simon Kenton. All we have left is the entry in the deed index.

A use for old deeds you may not have considered. In a case where the will has been lost, deeds reflecting the disposition of the deceased's property often give you all the important information that the will contained. For example, in the case of the deceased George James (will not yet located), deeds disposing of his real property name the individuals who were his heirs: Deed Book 7 Page 403; Deed Book 7 Page 589; Deed Book 7 Page 627 7 October 2013What's New

Additional images of PVA Maps 45, 46, 55 and 56. Not easy to view on line because of their large size, but available if you have the need. I use them to identify properties owned by my ancestors by using the general location described in deeds and comparing the deed property's shape and size with current PVA map tracts. Admittedly, about as esoteric as you're going to get ;) 17 September 2013 PVA Maps

The Carter County region as it was shown on the 1823 Tanner Map (nice map); 1861 Hall Map; 1863 Swann Map; 1865 Ruger Map; 1875 Cram Map; 1883 Consolidate Railway Map.
