In 1774 Virginia surveyors divided eastern Jefferson County into 1000-acre tracts for speculators who bought up land rights George III's government awarded to French and Indian War veterans. By 1786 George Rogers Clark's family, William Croghan, Richard Taylor, Richard Terrell, Frederick Edwards, and those they enslaved, were beginning to develop that land. A decade later, John Herr and George Rudy, blacksmiths and farmers from Pennsylvania, settled here as well. So Close From Home: The Legacy of Brownsboro Road traces the multi-faceted story of this diverse community. The 512-page book has a 20-page index and comprehensive resource listing.

Book Description Herr House Press, Louisville, Kentucky, 2007. Softback. Condition: Near Fine. No Jacket. First Edition. This 494 pp. indexed book is a very scholarly and thorough treatise on the neighborhoods in Louisville, Kentucky, that exist along Brownsboro Road, where it crosses the Watterson Expressway. The author painstakingly traces the original land grants that gave ownership of these several thousand acres to several Revolutionary War veterans, as payment for their service. Ms. Renau then traces how the properties, and ensuing neighborhoods morphed from the original large tracts, with very detailed family information, especially with the Edwards, Rudy and Herr families that owned so many lots in the area for numerous generations, leaving more than a few very old historic homes that still stand amid the new homes and subdivisions. This book is also a great genealogical resource for those and other families. Pristine condition. Photos upon request. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Seller Inventory # 43754
