Bullitt County History

Walter Beall's 200 Acre Tract

On 24 Jun 1784, Thomas Whitledge surveyed 200 acres of land for Brooke Beall located about 200 poles east of Brook's Spring. Brooke Beall then signed the tract over to Walter Beall on 9 Jan 1785, and Walter obtained a deed for the land on 20 Sep 1787. This was #15 on the 1811 plat drawing by James Shanks, Bullitt County Surveyor, which is described on another page.
