|61||1850 Pulaski County KY census John Colyer|
Shows John Colyer, wife Lydia (27 years younger) and children including Charles Granade Colyer. Interesting to see that land value totaled $1400. IF this was solely the 200 acre farm at Pitman Creek and hwy 192, it is interesting to see the dire effects of the civil war such that by 1865 when family sells the farm, it only brings $750 per deed on this website.

|82||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.

|84||1861 Pulaski County Ky Geology Report|

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.
|85||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.
|86||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.

|91||1870 Census John Thurston Curtis NY|
Status: Located showing John Thurston Curtis living in South Otselic NY, Chenango County working as a subcontractor for railroad. (likely getting lumber for railroad ties…..as that is what his son Fred did in Kentucky and may have been what brought John T Curtis to Kentucky as railroad was built out reaching Somerset in 1877. Note that John Thurston Curtis is shown as owning $7,000 of real estate at this date.

|94||1873 Andrew Warren deed adds Waddle land Cave Spring to Colyer Farm purchased 1865.|
Deed description sounds like Andrew Warren added land further down Pitman creek that included the cave spring on current strawberry Rd totaling 175 acres to the John Colyer farm. Mathew Warren, his son had purchased some of the adjoining land that had been owned by Linsey R Colyer. Pulaski County Deeds 27-163
|95||1873 Financial Crisis railroad bankruptcies|
Why did John T Curtis come from McDonough NY to Waynesburg KY ? He was listed on 1870 NY census as a railroad subcontractor. Perhaps railroad failed and construction gone in NY. In Kentucky, Cinncinati was building a railroad funded with City money, not investor money. Financial depression centered on railroad failure perhaps caused him to follow the money.
