On 24 Apr 1794, Edward Williams of Hardy County, Virginia (now West Virginia) deeded 700 acres to Isaac Hornbeck, which included the southern part of Williams' settlement and preemption in Bullitt County, which is described on another page.
Isaac Hornbeck died without having the original deed recorded. Then, on 8 Jul 1802, Williams, through his attorney in fact, Thomas Bullitt, a Louisville merchant, conveyed the 700 acres to Isaac's sons, Samuel, John, and Neal.
It's interesting to note that, of the 1400 acres in Williams' settlement and preemption, he conveyed 700 acres to Isaac Hornbeck, and 862.5 acres to George Reed, as shown on another page.
A photocopy of this deed is shown below.
