DEPOSITION BOOK A (Old book found in the basement of the Bourbon County Court House, by Julia S. Ardery, and placed in office of County Clerk.)

Nov. 25, 1816--Deposition of Wm. Steele, taken at home of Jno Nesbitt, north side Hinkson Creek, to establish entry of 400 a and preemption of 1000 a. entered by Wm. Nesbit, states he, deponent, came to Ky. 1775 in co. with Wm. Nesbitt, Joseph Houston and others to the matter of about fourteen, at lower Blue Licks his co. was joined by John Hinkson, John Martin and others who had just come into Ky. That each company sent our parties to explore, and on their return whole co. as well as that of Hinkston and others traveled along the buffalo trace now called Limestone, passing by Millersburg to Lexington until they came to the buffalo road now called Hinkston's trace, turned from Limestone road, that Hinkston's co. took Hinkston's trace and advanced to what is now called Hinkston's Station, that co. in which deponent was, entered Limestone trace until they came to buffalo trail, since called Ruddell's road, encamped on Miller's Run, that co. selected spots for improving and drew lots, deponent, drew place on which he has since lived, and Wm.

-----------------

From “Nesbitology 6-9”:

When returning from Anderson last September we called on Miss Mary Nesbit at Allisonville; had a very pleasant visit with her. She said she has a cousin living in Borbon (Bourbon ?) County, Kentucky, that had looked up records on her family but had not gotten in touch with her to ask for her records or rather a copy of them. The only record I have ever found out about them is this -- 'That on August 20, 1798 William Nesbit of Borbon County, Ky, sold a farm to John Mears in Huntington Twp., Westmoreland Co., Pa., Record: Vol. 4, page 88, Grantee Book of Westmoreland Co. This seems to indicate that Wm. Nesbet, is possibly the father of the names you mention, William, Jeremiah, Samuel, Thomas, Nathan and Robert, but this is only conjecture. It would seem to indicate that Wm. Nesbet had moved from Westmoreland Co., Pa. to Bourbon Co., Ky, and later sold his farm in Westmoreland Co., just as my grandfather John Nesbit and great-grandfather, Wm. Nisbet sold their farms in Fairfield Twp. Westmoreland Co., Pa., after moving to Summit Co., Ohio as the records at Greensburgh, Pa. show.


William married Agnes “Nancy” McCLINTOCK, daughter of Joseph McCLINTOCK (1701-ca1799) & Elizabeth TORRENCE (-1758), in Pennsylvania. Born in 1752 in Pennsylvania. Agnes “Nancy” died in Marion County, Indiana on August 26, 1836; she was 84.


Notes on Nancy McClintock: [7]

They had the following children:

13 i. John (1778-1835)

ii. Elizabeth. Born about 1780.

Elizabeth married William (John) STEVENSON.

14 iii. Joseph McClintock (~1780-1832)

iv. Jeremiah. Born about 1784. Jeremiah died in Marion County, Indiana. Buried in Lutheran Cemetery, Marion County, Indiana. [1]

According to Williams will, Jeremiah was given his home: "my home place shall be allotted to Jeremiah, and to their own proper use and behoof to them and thers forever. The rest of the land was to be divided equally among the four heirs." [1]


Jeremiah married Ellen LONG, in Kentucky.
