A transcription of his paper is located on another page. We have located many of these online at the Kentucky Secretary of State's Kentucky Land Officeand have tried to put together a composite drawing of where many of them were located with regard to the others. To do this we have identified eleven surveys that identify parts of their boundaries as being on or next to one or more of the others.
We begin with the two surveys of Charles Broughton. A survey Lick creek kentucky it appears under their names, as transcribed below from the Kentucky Grant Book 2, page Lick creek kentucky Beginning at a white oak and three hickories standing on the south bank of Long Lick Creek, about forty poles Lick creek kentucky where the said Broughton erected a salt works on the said creek, thence north twenty degrees west thirty eight poles to Long Lick Creek and the course continued on all two hundred poles to a hickory, elm and white oak on the south side of the said creek, south seventy degrees west two hundred poles to a red oak and two hickories, thence south twenty degrees east two hundred poles to a beech gum and black oak on the side of the knobs, thence north seventy degrees east two hundred poles to the Beginning The image shows a drawing of the survey taken from the survey document itself.
It shows where the surveyor believed the path of Long Lick Creek to be. On the drawing above, the letter B marks the location of where the survey states that the boundary line crossed the creek. It shows where the surveyor believed the path of Long Lick Creek to be within Lick creek kentucky survey. More detailed information about the Broughton surveys is available on another page. The next problem Lick creek kentucky to connect the Broughton surveys with any of the others.
This was accomplished by referring to a survey of acres done for Adam Shepherd in September That survey lay to the north of the Broughton surveys and identified a line that it shared with Broughton's acre survey.
It also identified lines it shared with a Bowman survey and a Phillips survey, as described below.
More information about this Shepherd survey is located on another page. The overall shape of this survey is shown below in a drawing taken from the original survey.
The lines described above are along the bottom Lick creek kentucky, and can be seen in the initial drawing above. From this we are able to locate the Bowman entry as well. We located a acre survey for Jacob Bowman dated in June which appears to be the Bowman entry described in Shepherd's survey. It shares lines with Peter Philips, and has lines that match two of Shepherd's lines in direction.
It is described below. You may also find more information about Jacob Bowman's survey on another page. As you can see from the plat drawing to the right which was taken from the original survey, Bowman's lines fit nicely with those of Shepherd.
The letter A on the drawing marks the beginning of the survey, and the lines continue clockwise. Note also that Lick creek kentucky survey marks the location of the Long Lick Creek as it passes through the survey.
The letter A also marks "the south west corner of Peter Philips' acre settlement. In JunePeter Philips had two surveys done, one Lick creek kentucky four hundred acres, and the second for one thousand acres which surrounded the first survey on three sides.
More information about this is located on another page. Since Bowman's survey identifed the location of the southwest corner of Philip's acre survey, we are able to position it as shown in the initial drawing above. The image to the left shows the original plat drawing of both surveys, rotated to its approximate location relative to compass direction with north being at the top.
Note also the apparent location of Long Lick Creek with regard to these surveys. Two things to note: Also note that Philip's surveys identify two other points where his lines cross Long Lick Creek points F and G on the initial drawing above. Lick creek kentucky
The Owings acre survey was actually in the name of Henry Spelman and John Cockey Owings, and they sold it to Adam Shepherd soon after the survey was made. More information about it is available on another page. You can follow the Lick creek kentucky described below on the plat image to the right which was taken from the original survey.
Note that this survey identifies two others: Charles Chinn's acre survey, and Jesse Reede's acre survey. Since Reede's survey was easier to plot, we will discuss it first. As you can see on the initial drawing at the top if this page, Jesse Reede's acres were laid out in a retangular shape that touched Spelman and Owings' survey for a short distance on one side.
You can read more about Reede's survey on another page. Note also that his name Lick creek kentucky been confusingly spelled as both Reede and Rude, but it is clearly spelled Reed at one point in the deed he received on this tract.
We know its location because it clearly identifies one side as being with Jesse Reede, and another side with Spilman and Owings as drawn in the plat image to the right and transcribed below. Thence down the creek binding on the same with the meanders thereof poles, when reduced to a strait line to a black oak on the north side of the creek on the bank, thence S 26 E Lick creek kentucky to the beginning.
More information about this survey may be found on another page. Adam Shepherd claimed another tract of land containing acres in This was located south of Jesse Reede's acres and of Spilman and Owings' acres as described below, and drawing in the image to the right.
The relationships of these Lick creek kentucky to one another can be seen in the initial drawing at the top of this page. You can read more about this Adam Shepherd survey on another page. Lick creek kentucky last survey that we have included in our drawing is that of Charles Chinn who claimed acres in February Determining the location of that survey with regard to the others in our drawing has been somewhat problematic. We know that Spilman and Owings' survey followed Long Lick Creek to a point where Chinn's line crossed the creek, and that their line then followed his line for poles is a southeasterly direction before turning away.
