Books to be Mailed Soon

After being out of print for almost 10 years, the following book has been reprinted:

Livingston County, Kentucky
Deed Books D - E 1818 - 1822
Miscellaneous Loose Papers 1799 - 1804

148 pages with full name and location indices, soft cover
$27.00 postage paid.

During this time period, the county seat was in Salem. Both Salem and Smithland were small towns, but were growing. In addition to the conveyance of land, bills of sale for personal property (including slaves), mortgages, powers of attorney, and divisions of estates are also found in this book. The second portion of the book contains transcriptions of miscellaneous loose county court papers (bonds, depositions, advertisements and judgments) and lists land claims, including the name of the claimant, number of acres and the owners of the adjoining property.

I'll be mailing books soon to those persons who have already ordered placed orders. Those of you who want the book and have not yet ordered it, keep in mind that this is a very limited printing and will not be reprinted again.
