Fleming Co., KY, Deed Book C, Page 274
"At the May term of Fleming Court, 1799, John Hunt and Manley brown were appointed to mark out the bounds for a warehouse in the town of Gath for the inspection of flour and hemp. They finally made their report in July, 1799, stating they had laid off lots 12 and 13 (half-acre lots) for the warehouses--beginning on the bank of the creek. thence down the same 10 rods, then off at right angles 16 rods, for quantity.
"The last mention we can find of Gath in the court records is in July 1811, when John Hunt, Peter Mauzey, and Gunnell Saunders were appointed new trustees."
Was this land that Thomas McDaniel purchased part of the Gath project?
Did Manly Brown "mark out the bounds" of McDaniel's land? Was this the meaning of "alined" above?
