Allen Luthy sent us this photo of a painting of Noah C. Summers, Bullitt County Clerk for 26 years (1824-1850) until his retirement. The painting has been dated around 1840, but could have been painted as early as the mid 1820's. Summers was born about 1801-2 as the 1850 census gives his age as 48. The painting has been passed down generation to generation for the past 175 years. Allen's mother has had it for 50 years. It is currently at an art gallery being restored.
