1 317  documents  Rush Branch Road ? :Kentucky legislative Act creating in 1835.   This seems to be first step of creating road from Pulaski County Courthouse to the coal mines at the mouth of the Rockcastle and Laurel Rivers on the Cumberland River. The 1942 book on this site about history of American Coal mining confirms. From study of 1845 map on this site as well as 1861 civil war map on this site, it appears that this was current Rush Branch road. Before the lake in 1950's, it appears current Rush Branch Road crossed Buck Creek and continued on to the coal mines on Cumberland River then continued on to Whitley County area where current day town of Williamsburg Ky is county seat.  2017-05-28 12:59:46 
2 322  documents  Map of Kentucky roads 1845  Shows road that appears to be Current Rush Branch road. Ky Legislature funded road improvement in 1835 for coal mines. This may also be what in Pulaski Court orders refer to the Whitley Road....meaning going to Whitley County area around current day Williamsburg Ky. This map lends support to the proposition that the KY Legislative Act of 1835 was for Rush Branch road that is shown crossing Buck Creek and continuing on to Coal mine area and then Whitley area. The Sublimity Road (current hwy 192 and formerly referred to in Pulaski Court Orders in 1821 as Saltworks Rd) may not have been improved until 1850's road Legislative Act.   2017-05-05 06:22:33 
3 318  documents  Possible Sublimity Road (hwy 192) history: The First Century and a Quarter of American Coal Industry, 1942  Confirms that the 1835 Ky Legislative act was building road from Pulaski county courthouse to the coal mines located at mouth of Rockcastle and Laurel Rivers on the Cumberland River. However study of maps of 1845, 1861 seem to show that this 1835 Act was for what is currently Rush Branch Road. Before the lake in 1950, based on civil war 1861 map and 1845 map, it appears that Rush Branch Road (may have been known as Whitley Road) crossed Buck Creek and continued to the coal mine area (see 1845 map) then on to Whitley County area south toward current day Williamsburg and Corbin Ky.  2017-05-05 06:19:27 
4 375  documents  1835 Pulaski Court Order   for road starting at Widow Langdon's (owner of house prior to John Colyer). Page 2 is from 1864 Burnside Civil War Map crop. Shows route from current Clay Hill Road at hwy 192 to Cherry Grove Rd back down Clay Hill Rd.
See this road description for road ordered at what became to be John Colyer house (formerly owned by the Langdon's) at current Ruth Ky at Pitman Creek. This helps determine age of log house....ie it was there in 1835. Also note it mentions Keeney that appears on 1864 civil war map on this site. Also note the termination at Cave/Spring....this could be the cave spring that was on current day Strawberry road.

In re the 1835 court order for road between whitley road (Rush Branch rd.) and salt road (which I believe to be hwy 192 from somerset to pitman creek) , trying to decipher what the 1835 order meant and where it was.....below will of William Richardson, the road surveyor, seems to show it to be running up pitman creek toward somerset. We know from John Colyer deed of 1842 from Langdon's that the first tract of land was the current big field which bordered Pitman creek and and went toward Blaze Valley where Jesse Richardson, father of William, had a grant of 1500 acres. We know this because the Colyer 1842 deed says it has a corner with Jesse Richardson property on Pitman creek. The road order of 1835 mentions going up to John Richardson then Hiram Hughs. The Will of William Richardson below, shows him leaving land on Pitman creek to wife, then land "that lies above" it to Matilta Meece (one of Richard Curtis's gg-grandmothers.) This seems to indicate William Richardson's land is running along current hwy 192 towards Somerset from the old Langdon-Colyer-Warren farm. Notice also as it continues in Will he leaves land of Hiram Hughs , who is mentioned in 1835 Court Order of road survey/maintenance.

In Pulaski County Court Order book 3, page 470, (about 1824) There is a road order for Jesse Richardson from Somerset to Pitman Creek , known as the Saltworks Road. It appears that East Mt. Vernon Street which currently turns into to hwy 192, was the Saltworks Road in very early days. The Filson Club member Miss Mary Verhoeff, in her book writes of a KY legislature Act of DEC 21, 1802 which orders a road from the Pulaski County Court house to the Salt Works in current Manchester KY. Evidently, current hwy 192 got it's start in this legislative Act as the Saltworks Road from Somerset.

It appears from 1824 and 1835 Court Ordered roads, that the Whitley Road (current day Rush Branch road, state route 769) came up to Pitman creek and then followed Pitman creek to intersect the Salt Road at the Langdon's and then Saltworks Road (hwy 192) came into Somerset. This has some logic to it, since Hwy 192 turns into East Mt. Vernon Street in Somerset and is a man artery road in downtown Somerset.

27 657  documents  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.
