On 14 Jun 1792, Benjamin Stansbury surveyed 100 acres for Charles Boone on the waters of Long Lick Creek. Boone later assigned the tract to Stansbury who obtained his deed to the land on 1 Oct 1796. After Benjamin had deeded his lands to his children, and then regained them, this tract was sold by the Sheriff to pay a debt he owed to Henry Horine. William Caldwell was the purchaser at that time. Later he sold it, along with other tracts, to Francis Maraman.
