On 5 Feb 1802, John Bell sold a large part of his 800 acre survey to four different men including Jesse Kirby. This 800 acre survey was located west of the West Fork of Cox's Creek in Bullitt County. The divisions of the 800 acre survey are shown here.
Kirby's portion lay along John Bell's southwest line, and between the tracts allotted to William Shoptaugh and George Bell. His boundary measure begins at  an elm and white oak in George Bell's line and travels northwest 120 poles to  Shoptaugh's corner of sugar tree and black walnut; then it follows a Shoptaugh line southwestward 160 poles to  two white oaks and two dogwoods in the original John Bell line. Following that line southeastward 120 poles, it reaches  George Bell's corner of two dogwoods, poplar and black gum. Finally the line turns northeast 160 poles to the beginning.
A transcription of this deed, and an image of it both appear below.
