A Kentucky Survey For A Court Case

Bryan's Station Survey Records, 1802, from the Kentucky Historical Society, a biography/history (text below):

"Most stations were built to defend against Indian attacks, but the characteristics of each were unique to the frontier settlement it served."

"Bryan's Station was built in 1779...five miles northeast of the Lexington fort. It was a forty-four (44) cabin stockade, with a 2-story blockhouse."

"This group has a survey map and document...[included] in a dispute over lands that were part of the Bryan's Station settlement in Fayette County, Kentucky. The survey apparently was made by Richard Higgins and was filed in the case of William Bledsoe vs. the heirs of William Tandy. The survey and map claim to show parts of the station as they were in 1780."
