The Jessamine Journal 1887-Present

The Jessamine Journal was founded by J. M. Parish, who came from Mt. Sterling in 1872, and was its editor and owner. For several years it was printed on a Washington hand-press and had a hard struggle for its existence. It changed owners seven or eight times, and the office was destroyed by fire in 1886. At the time of this fire it was well equipped with a large power press and a first-class outfit of type. J. M. Kerr, who purchased the plant from C. W. Metcalf after the fire, ran it on a small scale for a short time and in 1887 sold it to Col. H. M. McCarty, who was one of the most successful and distinguished journalists in Kentucky. He was secretary of state under Governor Knott, and held other positions of distinction. Harry McCarty, one of the editors, was the junior member of the company.

Edmonson County, Kentucky, Tax List, 1825

The Edmonson County, Kentucky, tax list of 1825 is arranged alphabetically by the name of the taxpayer. This simplifies finding a given name, although you lose family groupings. To retain family groupings despite alphabetizing by surname, we included the ID, which consists of consecutive numbers applied to consecutive taxpayers. The names in the fields for whom entered, for whom surveyed, for whom patented, were very difficult to read, but include names of the earliest settlers in this area, and many are not found elsewhere on this tax list, so we think it was worth the effort to include these fields. If you find errors, please let us know.
