|206||1859-1860 John Colyer Sr estate: Lindsey Colyer appointed receiver of funds from land and slave sale.|
Part of lawsuit between John Colyer Sr heirs and Cyrenius Wait. I suspect this was all over the coal lands at Buck Creek/Cumberland River that Cyrenius Wait wanted.
|207||1860 census Andrew Warren|
From neighbors, it does not look to be on the Colyer farm at Ruth Ky. sometime shortly after, he evidently leases the farm and moves there since General Burnside map of 1864 shows him there before his purchase in 1865.

|213||1860 John Colyer Jr. land and inherited land interests sold|
Purchasers Cornelius Doolin, who I suspect got the coal lands, possibly those inherited from John Colyer Sr, and Lindsey Colyer and Samuel Black also listed.

|220||1861 civil war map of roads around Somerset: Rush Branch/Whitley; hwy 192/Ruth Rd/Sublimity Rd; Lost SaltWorks rd of Grundy KY/Cannonball Rd; hwy 80/langfords Rd to Hazel patch/London.|
|221||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.

Report Calls area at current Burnside Ky as Texas District.
|224||1863 John Colyer Jr estate vs. Cyrenius Wait land sale|
It appears that Cyrenius Wait was opposing party in lawsuit of John Colyer Jr estate just like he was in John Colyer Sr estate over what I suspect was Wait's interest in obtaining the Coal properties held by each estate. However in the case of Jr. he had infant child that the courts interceded for.
|225||1863 Seth Curtis sells McDonough NY lot 101 for $102|
|226||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. According to deeds found under James Alexander Colyer, the mill was built by Alexander Colyer after 1854. 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.
|227||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.

|236||1866 Harriet Colyer Black purchase deed 108 acres Blaze Valley from estate of her father, John Colyer|
Deed says that Cyrenius Wait had held up estate settlement, and heirs of John Colyer file lawsuit against Cyrenius and win, so the court orders sale of land and slaves of John Colyer in March 1859. At the court sale, Harriet Black, purchases 108 acres for $706. Son of John Colyer..Stephen Colyer deceased 1855 and his estate settlment shows John Colyer at death owned 200 acre homeplace on Pitman creek, and 108 acre on Pitman creek waters and 250 acre coal lands. This deed in Blaze Valley was evidently the 108 acres on pitman creek waters that was not the homeplace.

Excludes coal bank
|241||1869 Kentucky Court Appeals case land dispute|
Involves Cyrenius Waite, Lindsey Colyer, Samuel Black. This appears to be property inherited from John Colyer, the father of Lindsey Colyer and Samuel Black's wife, Harriett (based on 1/17th undivided interests) At some point Cyrenius Waite has come to lay claim to the sold 1/17th interests. This appears to be the 200 acre of coal lands John Colyer Sr. had on Cumberland River at Buck Creek. This shows both Samuel Black and Lindsey Colyer had sold their 1/17th undivided interest in the apparent coal lands to Darlin and Clark. See 1865 deed under John Colyer, where heirs all sell their 1/17th interest in farm at Pitman Creek to Andrew Warren. Cyrenius Waite, appears to have again intervened in Colyer land as he did for Bluford Colyer...see deeds under Bluford Colyer. See 1851 tax records under John Colyer b.1781 where shows land on cumberland river and deed from Purvis in 1851 for 50 acres Buck Creek.

Status: Located showing John Thurston Curtis living in South Otselic NY, Chenango County working as a subcontractor for railroad.

Note that John Thurston Curtis is shown as owning $7,000 of real estate at this date.

|247||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
|248||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. One of the railroads that failed was one serving the county and surrounding in NY where John T Curtis was living in NY. The consultant hired by Cincinnati to survey the route of the railroad through Pulaski County Ky was from New York (Cornell Univ finger lakes region area) in a county next to where John T Curtis was living in NY.
|249||1873 Pulaski county commissioner deed to James Sears of Alex Colyer mill|
James Sears was former partner of Alexander Colyer in 1200 acre purchase on Pitman Creek in 1854. Here it shows that Alexander Colyer built the grist mill on current day Strawberry Rd that is currently owned by Hughes family. See John Colyer of 1781 docs where evidence of another grist mill in 1838 was upstream on Pitman Creek near current Clay Hill Rd and hwy 192.
