Bullitt County History

John Minter's 500 Acres

On 20 Oct 1789, James F. Moore surveyed two tracts for John Minter, each containing 250 acres. The first tract began at a corner of Colonel William Christian's Bullitt Lick tract; the second lay to the southwest of the first one. We have combined the two tract drawings and rotated them to more correctly orient them northward. The tract beginning at Christian's corner is marked as A; the beginning of the other tract is marked B. Minter received deeds to both tracts on 9 May 1792.
