Lincoln County Courthouse                                            Main Street - Stanford, Kentucky
                           Stanford, Ky                                 
I recall as a kid, the old Hotel on Main Street (north side) at 
                                                                                    which an old family friend named Nell Gooch Spoonmoore ran the 
                                                                                    dining room, maybe the whole hotel, I dunno.  
                                                                                         I can still smell the ice tea, and hear her caged canary sing...Edward Shaw

As a brief background of Lincoln County, it was originally part of Virginia, and was formed in 1780.  The county seat is located in Stanford, Kentucky. Most of Kentucky was part of Virginia in the 1700s.Lincoln County was one of the three original counties in Kentucky.  In 1776, a part of Fincastle County was taken to form Kentucky County, Virginia. Kentucky County was then divided by the Virginia legislature in 1780 to form the counties of Fayette, Jefferson, and Lincoln.  When Kentucky became a commonwealth in 1792 , nine counties had already been created.  They were Nelson, Bourbon, Madison, Mercer, Mason and Woodford. Therefore, when searching your families, you may wish to look in Fincastle Co, Virginia, Kentucky Co., Virginia as well as those counties previously mentioned.
