Magoffin County Home or Poor House

Does anyone have any info on when the Magoffin County Home or Poor House was in operation, where it was located, and where I can find records for the Magoffin County Home or Poor House?

I found the following info in a dissertation by Richard Allen Carlson, Jr. titled: "“Who’s Your People?” Cumulative Identity among the Salyersville Indian Population", Carlson stated that according to Magoffin County court records John Hale (born in VA) is referred to as "Old Cherokee John Hale" and that he lived at the County Home and died there in 1877, and Carlson also stated, my great grandfather John Hale who was married to Nancy Trusty and later Margaret Trusty had also lived at the County Home at some point.
