House was later residence of John Colyer born 1781. See Civil War map on this site showing Colyer's Mill on Pitman Creek.

|62||1861 Civil War map with Somerset inset showing Sublimity Rd (now hwy 192) and Rush Branch Rd|
This map seems to lead one to the conclusion that the KY legislative act of 1835 on this site for road construction was concerning current Rush Branch Road (formerly known as the Whitley Road in Pulaski County Court Order). The 1861 Civil War map on this site appears to clearly show Rush Branch road at the time crossed over Buck Creek (now since lake formation in 1950's road ends at Buck Creek) and went down to the coal mines on this 1861 map and coincides with language in 1835 Legislative Act. Therefore, it may be that current hwy 192(formerly known as Sublimity Road since 1858 Act, but formerly in pulaski court orders known as the Saltworks Rd) was improved by the 1853 or so Legislative Act sponsored by Christopher Columbus Graham to his resort at Sublimity Springs.

Coal was mined and a small train took coal from top of current day Clay Hill Rd to intersection of current hwy 192 and Pitman Creek to original Ruth Ky store operated by Mathew Warren, then Mr Alexander, then Ad Colyer then Ridners. Report Calls area at current Burnside Ky as Texas District.
|65||1864 Burnside area Civil War map (10 meg size)|
to right side, shows Ruth Ky area and John Colyer house(then occupied by Andrew Warren) at Pitman Creek. Note that down the road (currently called Clay Hill Road) that runs next to Pitman Creek, is Colyer Mill. I suspect that this mill belonged to Charles Colyer, uncle to John Colyer. See Charles Colyer who received first court order in 1799 for grist mill on Buck Creek Pulaski County and 1822 road order along Pitman creek mentioning land of Charles "Colyear". The map also shows neighbor named Keeney whose name is referenced in a road project in Court Orders Book 5 Pulaski County starting at Widow Langdon's...ie John Colyer house. Thanks to Joe at Ky Dept of Highways Dist. 8 office Somerset for this map. Note that this map is for Burnside area. Other 1861 maps on this site for civil war seem to show current hwy 192 (formerly Sublimity rd.) Therefore this area on this Burnside map may not show it due to purpose not to show roads insignificant to Burnside...ie Sublimity toll road going to resort.
|66||1864 Kentucky State Senate vote by Cyrenius Waite Soldier Voting|
Ironic bill vote in February 1864 by Cyrenius Waite to allow Union Soldiers from Kentucky to vote for 1864 Presidential election, where nationwide this was thought to highly favor Lincoln for re-election in midst of Civil War. Cyrenius Waite being largest slave holder in Pulaski County KY. Kentucky was only state south of Mason-Dixon line to allow this and yet its majority voted in election against Lincoln as did its Union soldiers by 70%. Then again, KY may have been about only state south of Mason Dixon Line to be permitted to vote in this war time election.
|67||1865 U.S. census, Chenango County NY, Seth Curtis|

Various Colyer property East Pulaski County Pitman Creek etc .

Notice that on this 1874 list, it shows Charles Colyer (same as 1873 showing as John G Colyer which encourages my guess that his full name was Charles John Granade Colyer). Also note Alexander Colyer with about 500 acres that I guess is land currently all woods that is owned next to old Colyer/Warren Farm on Pitman Creek) later records shows next to Warren and Allen farm(current at Pitman creek and hwy 192) and next to Keeny property reflected on Civil War Map of Burnside this website.

|88||1884 deed from Andrew Warren to Henry Warren 75 acres|
Trace of John Colyer home place deed that was sold to Andrew Warren....this is Andrew Warren transferring part to son Henry. Another 1884 deed to son William H Warren, transfers another 56 acres. Have not identified yet where other acres went to total the 200 sold by John Colyer to Andrew Warren. One son of Andrew Warren , Mathew, I have not found any land to him yet. Mathew who was first Ruth Ky postmaster, did purchase some acres across street from heirs of Alexander Colyer by court ordered auction. Not that road is referred to Rockcastle Springs Rd. Based on obituary of Charles Grenade Colyer in Somerset Republican paper 1910, it was later referred to as Sublimity Springs Rd. Earliest records refer to it as Salt Works Rd. After 1910 it was known as Ruth Rd and lately as hwy 192.

|91||1886 Ruth Ky Warren Store ledger|
WARNING large 60 meg file: requires high speed: This ledger of the general store at what is now known as Ruth Ky was found in ceiling of old log home renovation 2012. The log house built by John Langdon in 1814, purchased by John Colyer 1842, then purchased by Andrew Warren 1865. Andrew's son, Mathew(born 1859), evidently ran store across the road from the house. The store later became in 1888 the first post office in the community at current day hwy 192 at Pitman Creek in Somerset Ky. The first post office in 1888 known as Juno....later became Ruth Ky. Many area family names in ledger: Colyer, Warren, Richardson, Meece, Botkin, Allen, Sword.

|94||1892 deed Louisa Jane Meece Colyer to TP Meece|
land inherited from Louisa's father, Ephraim Meece, transferred to TP Meece.
|95||1893 deed James Alexander Colyer heirs court ordered sale of modern day Clay Hill Rd Pitman Creek property to Mathew Warren and John Colyer|
This researcher has not determined which John Colyer this deed was to, but suspects it was John W Colyer, son of Linsey Randall Colyer by Elizabeth Warren. This John Colyer was raised in the home of Andrew Warren with his uncle Mathew Warren.
This property appears to be land next to Andrew Warren wooded section opposite Colyer/Warren house at Pitman creek that was purchased from John W Colyer Sr heirs in 1865. This land appears to be going along current Strawberry rd. Mathew Warren was an early postmaster of predecessor to Ruth Ky at store he ran at 192 intersection of Pitman creek.
