B. F. Adair's GroceryThis article might seem like a tiny item to be discovered in a newspaper, yet for family history researchers it speaks loudly to the people of olden times. The fact of B. F. Adair's Grocery Store in Millersburg could lead to further investigation, perhaps locating old ledgers and receipts of the business.
"I hereby forwarn all persons that my farm is posted, and all trespassers either hunting or fishing on my premises will be prosecuted to the extent of the law. My friends will please not ask the privilege of violating my positive resolution. Signed, Jesse Turkey."
The Bourbon News, Millersburg, Kentucky on April 18, 1882.
Who Invented the "Tom and Jerry"?A Kentucky newspaper claims the invention and the drink known as a Tom and Jerry for Jack Shingler, an eccentric old shoemaker, originated it a third of a century ago and named it after Thomas Jefferson and the Biblical prophet, Jeremiah."

Names of Families in Bourbon County Wills, Estates, Marriages, Obituaries, DeathsSome of the most beautiful country in America is in Paris, Kentucky. In 1780 the district of Kentucky belonged to three counties in Virginia, viz: Fayette, Jefferson, and Lincoln. Old Bourbon County was formed in 1786 from Fayette and Bourbon Counties, Virginia, and originally comprised 34 northeastern counties of Kentucky. When the new State of Kentucky was created in 1792, Bourbon became a county. The land itself was given by Fayette County, Virginia, and was named after the French House of Bourbon in honor of the assistance that France gave to America during the Revolutionary War. The courthouse was destroyed by fire in 1872 and again in 1901, resulting in the loss of county records. Whiskey, made from corn had a distinctive flavor and became a popular drink termed Bourbon whiskey as opposed to rye whiskey. The whiskey barrels were marked Old Bourbon when they were shipped downriver from the local port on the Ohio River. The port from where the whiskey was shipped was called Limestone, now Maysville, and was located in Bourbon County until the borders were redrawn in 1789 and it became Mason County. The county seat is Paris, Kentucky.
