Thomas the oldest, married a highland woman, named McKean, and had three sons, Col. John Reid, Jr., Nathan and Alexander. Col. John married Martha, and Nathan, Sarah, daughters of their Uncle John.

'Excerpts from History and Genealogies (History of Kentucky Portion)
(**a LICK, in the following paragraphs, refers to trails made by animals heading for salt , these were often then used as and by Indians, usually trails followed by the Indians in their movement from place to place, but also, the term refers to trails taken by hunting parties of Indians)


"Boone's Trace was cut from the Long Island on the Holston River, not far from the place of Treaty of Fort Stanwix, at the Sycamore Shoals on the Watago, a branch of the Holston, to Boonesborough (est. by Daniel Boone, 1775), on the Kentucky (Louisa) River, by Colonel Daniel Boone under a bargain with the proprietors of the Transylvania or Henderson Company, to go before and open the road (233 miles)."

"In the interest and perilous pioneer days many of the immigrants from Virginia and North and South Carolina traveled these roads--the Wilderness, the northeasterly parts came down the Monongahela and Ohio Rivers to Lees Town, the Falls of the Ohio and other points; thence different routes to the interior. "

Col Daniel Boone was Deputy Surveyor of Madison County, Kentucky. In 1788 Aaron Lewis and William Calk were appointed by the court to examine Daniel Boone touching his capacity to execute the office of Deputy surveyor of Madison County, Kentucky. " *(Apparently the question had been raised about Boone's ability or questions raised on whether or not the information provided by him as Surveyor was accurate. Therefore a commission was appointed to verify, and substantiate the information provided by Boone.)

From Article 2--Schedule and Excerpts of Depositions Taken to Perpetuate Testimony as to Land Boundaries and Claims in Madison County, Kentucky, in Her Infant Days, etc."

As we read through these depositions we find information relating to not only John but two other Reid family members including his brother Alexander, and a nephew Elick. Notice for these depositions published in John Bradford's Kentucky Gazette
To wit:

E page 232)

"Deposition of Humphrey Baker, 25 years old, taken February 7 and 8, 1801, on 4,000 acres in the name of William Mayo at Station Camp, met at house of Joe Wells; adjourned to the 8th house of Azariah martin, farmer. Questioned by Green Clay. (Notice published in Gazette) John Sappington, John Harris and Stephen Trigg, Commissioners of the Court.

'Shortly after McMullins and Carpenter were killed on Drowning Creek, myself, Col. Estill, Elick Reid, Benjamin Estill, Benjamin Cooper, Braxton Cooper, Sharswell Cooper, Patrick Woods, Charles Shurley, Higgason Harris, Daniel Hancock, Jesse Noland and others were going to Station Camp, and as we came along Samuel Estill showed us an oak tree and spoke to Ben Estill and told him to take notice in case he should die that that tree was the beginning of James Estill's 1,000 acre entry, etc. On this trip was some distance up the creek of Station Camp. ALEXANDER REID killed a deer some distance before we crossed Station Camp Creek."

Next comes an extensive description of the area.

E, page 248)
ALEXANDER REID , at the same time and place and before the same Commissioners
(Feb. 6 1801, at Joe Wells House on Station Camp before Stephen Trigg and Joseph Boggs, Commissioners)

Testimony included "This lick at Hinton's is on a branch that runs into Crooked Creek; the distance from the lick to Crooked Creek is between three and four hundred poles; from the lick to main Station Camp may be more or less than 3/4 of a mile."



E,page 236) Azariah Martin," testimony ...

Deponent Martin. Locating Licks. " One about 1 1/4 miles below here on the east side of Station Camp on the side a noll, the second at Hinton's about the same distance.....In April 1784, I came from Estill's Station in company with Samuel Estill, Harris Massie, John Woods, William Kavanaugh, Nicholas Proctor, John Mitchell, William McCrary, and sever others (the others were probably those named in Humphrey Baker's deposition, to wit: Humphrey Baker, Cal Estill, ALEX REID, Benjamin Estill, Benjamin Cooper, Braxton Cooper, Sharswell Cooper, Patrick Woods, Charles Shurley, Higgason Harris, Daniel Hancock, Jessee Noland which composes a company of twenty men) in a pursuit of a Indian camp near the mouth of Station Camp Creek, and I was showed by some of the company at or near the Blue Banks, about two miles from this place, there was the War Road to our right hand......"


E, page 296) "Squire Boone, at the house of JOHN REID, on Hart's Fork of Silver Creek, March, 1802, before John Harris and John Kincaid, Commissioners, on spring branch below Reid's house at two white oaks and honey locust--on of the oaks marked G.M. 1786 and J.E.D. and the white oak marked N.1.86. D.B. (Nov. 1 1786 Daniel Boone)


Mary joined John in Madison County, Ky between 1790 and 1795. They settled and made their home on Otter Creek, a mile or two east of Richmond where John died on June 18 1818. His son, John Reid and son in law, William Williams qualified as administrators of his estate.

Mary Woods Reid, his widow died at their Otter Creek Home.

June 3, 1783. Major John Reid moved the committee of Cumberland relative to the assembling of the southern tribes of Indians at the French Lick on Cumberland, for holding a treaty with the Commissioners appointed by the State of Virginia; when the Committee, considering how difficult it will be for a handful of people, reduced to poverty and distress by a continued scene of Indian barbarity, to furnish any large body of Indians with provisions; and how prejudicial it may be to our infant settlement, should they not be furnished with provisions, or otherwise dissatisfied with the terms of the treaty; on which consideration the Committee refer it to the unanimous suffrages of the people of this settlement, whether the treaty shall be held here with their consent or no, and that the suffrages of the several stations be delivered to the Clerk of Committee on Thursday evening the fifth instant.

Result:
Freeland's Station, no treaty here, 32.
Heatonsburg, no treaty here, 1; treaty here, 54
Nashborough, no treat here, 26, treaty here 30
French Lick, no treat here, 58; treaty here , 84

The whole of the money and property that I gave to my son William, when added together amounts to the sum of $441.

The whole of the property that I gave to my daughter Susan M. Estill, when added together amounts to the sum of $527.

I have one infant daughter by my wife Adaline Reid, who is my present wife, by the name of Mary Ann Reid. It is my will and desire that my daughter Mary Ann Reid have an equal portion of my estate with my other children taking into consideration all that my older children have also had. Mary Ann being young and has had nothing yet, she must have as much as will make her equal with my other children before they get anything and then about the same that each of the other children get afterwards and if I should have any other heirs, it is my will and desire that they all have an equal portion of my estate as near as possible. My daughter Mary Ann is not quite nine years old, she is to raise and school and dress until she gets to fifteen or sixteen years old and it is my will and desire that my daughter Mary Ann have four hundred dollars more than my other daughters as I have already been out the expense of raising, schooling and dressing all my other daughters.
It is my will and desire that the County Court of Monroe County, Mo appoint some safe person to take care of the four hundred dollars for Mary Ann's benefit and have it made use of as she needs it. It is my will and desire that my daughter Mary Ann have one negro girl slave by the name of Nancy. She (Nancy) is in her seventeenth year and is married. Nancy is worth about -?- about as my other daughters negro girls were valued. It is now to be understood that as my daughter Mary Ann is young and small, not nine years old, she is not to have any of the increase from her negro girl until she (Mary Ann) is fourteen years old, and after that time she is to have all the increase her girl may have forever, but if my daughter Mary Ann's negro girl (Nancy) should not live until she (Mary Ann) is fourteen years old, then in that case, it is my will that Mary Ann Reid shall have about the same amount of property made up to her out of my estate if there is property sufficient belonging to my estate. If there is not property, it must be made up to her out of property that may be in possession of her mother, Adaline Reid. I wish it now distinctly understood that it is my will and desire that all that part of my estate that is or may be given to my daughter Mary Ann Reid, is intended for her own benefit and her heirs if she ever have any and not to be put in the power of any man she may marry, to sell or trade in any way whatever, not to be liable for debt whether contracted before or after marriage.
It is my will and desire that all that part of my estate that may be coming to my son James W. Reid is to be secured to his children (my grandchildren) whose names are first, Lucy Ann, second, John Miller, third Glorenna (may be Glorinna).
It is my will and desire that all that part of my estate that may be coming to my son Thomas J. Reid, when a division takes place, be secured to his children whose names are first, Sylvanus, second , Christopher, only two.
I have two daughters that I wish their children to inherit that part of my estate that may be coming to them. Elzira Fox has one son by the name of John J. Fox, my grandson. I wish him (John J.) to inherit one half of that part of my estate that may be coming to his mother (Elzira Fox) when my estate is divided, the other half will go to his sister, the daughter of Elzira Fox.
My daughter Polly Williams, if there is any thing coming to her at the division of my estate, it is my desire it be given to her individual self to use or dispose of as she may think fit.
My daughter Lucinda Gentry, I wish her (she being a widow) to receive all that part of my estate that may be coming to her at the division of my estate in her own hand and use it for her own benefit as she may think best during her lifetime and forever.
It is my will and desire that my daughter Corena Yates have all that part of my estate that may be coming to her at the division of my estate, paid over to her self and that she make use of it in any way she may think best.
My daughter Susan M. Estill having no children, all that part of my estate that may be coming to her, it is my will and desire that it be paid over to her and that she use it and improve it for her own benefit and comfort and if my said daughter Susan should not live to have any issue, her part of my estate is to be put into the hands of her brother William Reid for aid in support of the Gospel at her decease.




I wish it now understood distinctly that I appoint my son William Reid as a trustee or put him in trust for the safe keeping of the part of my estate I have given to the children of James W. Reid whose names are mentioned in the foregoing part of this my last will and testament. The interest of the amount it may be is to be used by the parents of said children for raising, schooling of their offspring.
I now appoint Joseph M. Reid and put him in trust for the safe keeping of that part of my estate that I have given to the children of my son Thomas J. Reid, whose names are Sylvanus, the oldest and Christopher, the second. There being only the two of them, the interest of or on the amount that may be coming to said children to be used by their parents to aid in raising and schooling said children until they are of age or come to the years of maturity. I have said before that it is my will and desire that all my children should have an equal portion of my estate taking into consideration all that each of my children have had before and after they were named. Those who have had most will not pay back any thing but all others to have as near as the property will hold out to make them equal to those who have had the most.
My daughter Mary Ann, being young and have had nothing yet, it will be seen above that I have given or set apart four hundred dollars for her benefit raising, schooling and dressing and I now appoint Thomas Crutcher of Paris in trust to see that the four hundred dollars on hand for the benefit of my daughter Mary Ann as she needs it. As I have said that it is my will and desire that my beloved wife Adaline have one third part of all my personal estate, slaves included. She may elect to take her third from the appraised value when the property is preparing to be sold or if she prefers, she can bid it off at the sale and hold her third during her natural lifetime, improve it and use it for her comfort and happiness and at her death, the whole of her third part of my estate both real and personal be sold and divided amongst all my children making the division as near equal as possible. If my beloved wife, Adaline Reid have her third part of my estate laid off for her to live on, it is my wish that due respect be paid to water and timber in order that each party can have a fair chance to keep their part of my farm on order so long as they occupy it. Now as this is my last will and testament, all others that may have been written before this date are null and void and of no force of all whatsoever. Now in order that this, my last will and testament be carried into complete effect, I hereby constitute and appoint Henderson Davis of Monroe County, Mo, with the assistance of Alfred Wilson of Paris, Mo, my executors of this my last will and testament who will perform the duties enjoined upon them as such.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and affix my seal, this thirtieth day of June in the year of our Lord, eighteen hundred and fifty five.

JOHN MILLER'S WILL.
In the name of God, Amen, I, John Miller, of Madison County, and State of Kentucky, do make and ordain this my last will and testament, revoking all others by me heretofore made. In the first place, it is my will and desire that all my just debts be paid by my Executors hereafter named as soon as conveniently may be after my decease. I give to my beloved wife, Jane Miller, during her natural life, and no longer, the plantation and tract of land whereon I now live, including the tract which I purchased of my son, Robert Miller, and also the tract I purchased of Cornelius Maupin; also all my negroes, live stock, household and kitchen furniture, all my unmentioned estate, after satisfaction and payments of my just debts, bequeaths and devises, hereafter mentioned, for and during the said term of her natural life, to be in full satisfaction of and in lieu of dower in my real and personal estate.
I give to my son, Robert Miller, and his heirs forever, twenty acres of land to be in a square and to be taken off of the east corner of my tract of land on which the town of Richmond stands. Also, one negro.
I give to my son, William Miller, and to his heirs forever, and to my son, John Miller, Jun'r, and to his heirs forever, the tract of land on which the said town of Richmond stands, to be equally divided between them, by such division line as they may agree upon, but it is to be understood that the devise is not to include or extend to any property I may hold within the boundary of said town, nor to any part of said tract I may have sold by written or verbal contract, nor to the part before devised to my son Robert.
I devise to my son, Thomas Miller, and to his heirs forever, one tract of land lying in the said county near the said town of Richmond which I purchased from Elijah Gaddy, containing one hundred acres. Also, two negroes.
I devise to my son, Delaney Miller, and to his heirs forever, one hundred and forty acres of land, being part of the tract whereon I now live, which I purchased of my son, Robert Miller, and Cornelius Maupin, to be laid off of the south end of said tract, and not to come nearer to the dwelling house than three hundred and fifty yards, to extend up the line between me and John Patrick and the improvement for quantity. Also, two negroes.
I devise to my son, Garland Miller, and his heirs forever, the balance of the aforementioned tract of land whereon I now live, be the same, more or less, except the part already devised to my son Delaney Miller, to be laid off in the manner and form before mentioned, or any other way they may agree upon to suit themselves, to have and enjoy the same after the determination of the other therein before devised to his mother. I, also, give him two negroes.

I devise to my son, Joseph Miller, and his heirs forever, one tract of land lying on the waters of Paint Lick Creek, deeded to me by David Wells, containing two hundred acres, be the same (more) or less. Also two negroes.
I give to my daughter, Anna Reid, one negro.
I give to my daughter, Elizabeth Kavanaugh, one negro.
I give to my daughter, Jane Lackey, two negroes.
I give to my daughter, Frances Miller, three negroes.
I give to my sons Delaney and Garland each, and to my daughter Frances, one horse and saddle, and two cows and calves, and one bed and furniture, to be paid them at the time of their marriage, or attaining the age of twenty-one years, whichever shall first happen, to be allowed to them out of the estate in my beloved wife's hands, by my Executors, if she should be then living, and if she should not be then living, give them the value of said articles in cash, the value to be ascertained by neighbors--one chosen by my Executors, one by such child entitled thereto, and a third chosen by these two; it is to be fairly understood that if I should, in my life time, give to any of my children a negro, and other property herein devised or given, that it is to be considered satisfaction of the devise or bequest of such negro, all as far as it answers the description herein given. It is further to be understood that the negroes herein given and devised are not to be paid to my said children until after the death of my wife, unless she shall choose to part with them, in which case she may at any time pay to any one, or more, any, all, or more of said negroes, with the assent of my Executors, or the survivors of them.
Should any of my children die before me, the devise and bequest herein made to said children are to stand good and effectual to the heirs of such person--according to the laws of descent in the Commonwealth.

Continuation of John Miller's Will:
"I constitute and appoint my friends, William Irvine, Robert Rodes, Executors of this my last will and testament. I empower them to make convey--for my lands which at the time of my death I may have sold, and unconveyed, either by written or verbal contract. I, also, empower them to divide my negroes according to the division of them herein made, as equal as may be. I do, also, empower them to sell and convey, as to them may seem best, all my lots in the town of Richmond, and to dispose of any part of my personal estate, if necessary, to raise money for the payment of my debts, and the residue, if any, from the sale of the lots, and collections of my debts, to pay the same to my wife. I declare my wife is not to give security for the keeping of the property left her, nor is she to be answerable for its depreciation in value, etc. And, whereas, I have at sundry times given to my children who have grown to years of maturity, a negro, or negroes, etc., I do now ratify and confirm to them all and every gift which I may before have made, and do declare that when I have delivered them any negro without an express stipulation to the contrary, that it is to be considered a gift.
All my estate left after the death of my wife, and not herein

otherwise disposed of, I give to my daughters, Anna Reid, Elizabeth Kavanaugh, Jane Lackey, and Frances Miller, to be equally divided between them, and I wish it to be understood that whereas I have by deed given to my daughter, Elizabeth Kavanaugh, and her heirs, a part of a lot in the town of Richmond of the value of fifty pounds, now unless the said gift can be rescinded, and the said lot or the value thereof to be equally divided between the brothers and sisters, she is not to receive any part of my estate as last above mentioned devised to Anna Reid, Elizabeth Kavanaugh, Jane Lackey, and Frances Miller. Shall each of them have received the sum of fifty pounds, should there be any balance, it is then to be equally divided between them.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand, and affixed my seal this 24th day of February, 1806.

CEMETERY: Bluegrass Army Depot Removed Graves - Cemetery A, Madison Co., KY

Located on US 421 across from the entrance to the Bluegrass Army Depot.

In 1942 the Army purchased 15,000 acres of land in Madison County. To
build the Bluegrass Army Depot on this land, 150 plus family properties
were purchased. As part of the purchase agreement, the graves of family
members had to be exhumed and relocated to properties purchased for that
purpose. Two cemeteries were established, one for "whites" (Cemetery A) on
KY 421 and one for "colored" graves (Cemetery B) on Speedwell Road. There
were a total of 901 bodies in Cemetery A. Most of those are unknown. The
burials in Cemetery B will be covered in the next issue of Connections.
Trustees were appointed for each cemetery and the Army gave a sum of
money for upkeep of the cemeteries. In 1973 the Army notified the
community that it would no longer maintain the cemetery, and since this
time it has been abandoned and the graves have become overgrown. Local
youths have vandalized many graves. An elderly woman who lives next to the
cemetery, Mrs. Nora Leach, has planted trees and restored some of the
graves in the front sections. A large number of graves are in the back
section of the cemetery which is overgrown and in very poor condition.
Mrs. Leach has been mowing the cemetery without compensation for a number
of years. She also raises a garden in the part of the cemetery where there
were no burials; however, part of the garden may have encroached on the
unmarked graves in Section D. A map of the sections could not be obtained.
A spokesman for the Army Depot maintains that the garden is in what was a
parking lot.
Before the graves were moved a preliminary survey was done of each
cemetery. When the graves were moved the contractor also made a list. In
this list he gave the tract number that the grave was moved from and the
section and lot of the new burial place. I have combined these lists below
to try to get a complete list of burials at Cemetery A. The graves with an
asterisk beside them are graves that are in the mowed section of the
cemetery. Most of the other graves appear to be there, but are overgrown
and the tombstones have been knocked down.
