Bullitt County History

Michael Horine's 400 Acre Tract

On 5 Jul 1784, Baker Ewing led a survey team that surveyed 400 acres for Michael Horine that lay on a dividing ridge that leads from Salt River up to the "Bald Hills" which are about 2,5 miles from Bullitt's Lick. The survey was based on a treasury warrant originally issued to James Clark, who signed it over to Jacob Myers who then assigned it to Michael Horine who received his deed for this tract on 31 Aug 1787. The drawing shown here has been rotated to correct its orientation.
