Would like information on Hootentown. What are the watercourses and highways running through it? Do any Hootens/Hootons still live in the area? My ancestor, Thomas Hooten (Sr) appeared on a Clark County tax list in 1795. In 1799, he bought 277 acres in the Silver Creek area of Madison County, KY, from Philip and Orender Bush. Thomas Hooten (Sr) married Orender Bush 1 Nov 1802. Other Ancestors of mine who lived in the area were Parnell, Montgomery, Dozier.
