County Court Minute Book A (1781 - 1783) Pages 14, 15, and 16

The following names are listed with the minute book for the years listed.   This listing includes all families at that time which were granted acreage.  Keep in mind that this timeframe represents families that lived in a much larger expanse of Jefferson County than actually exists today.   Many of these people lived in the outlying counties we have present today, but their land was granted to them when it was still a part of Jefferson County.   Please feel free to contact your coordinators at anytime with any additions or corrections you may have.  This information was derived from for the Nelson County KyGenWeb site.
