Surnames: Beck, Dillard, Kirby
My step father-in-law left a small, rather simple, map that
has the note reading "Where the Kirbys and their friends built their homes when the came from North Carolina to what is now Warren County, Kentucky. Ky. had not been made a state when they came. The houses with a cross by them are first settlers the others are their children." At the top from left to rt. Jesse L. Kirby, L. W. Kirby, Thomas Jefferson Kirby(no crosses). Crosses are by these-Fredrick
Potter, Fredrick Poe, John Kirby, George Dye,Johnnie Boone
(brother to Daniel), Jesse Kirby, Aaron Couch, ? Skaggs,Sam-
uel Kirby, ? Clark, Ratcliff Kirby. Noncrossed in the body of the map: John Jackson Kirby and Leonard Kirby. Drakes Creek and Trammel Creek run from left to right of the map.
In the lower left is a lake and a stream running to a "Rock Fort". It says: "Three Springs where Daniel Boone, the Kirbys and others built a Rock Fort and Hunted."
there are also two other lakes and below one of them it says
"These lakes were sunken during the earthquake of 1811."
My father-in-law was John Erskine Beck, son of John Otis Beck and Elizabeth Kirby, grew up in the Bowling Green area.
