Abstract of Deeds – Nelson County, KY – 1785 to 1808
Compiled by Nelson County Historical Society
Note: Nelson County was formed in 1784; Hardin County formed in 1792 from part of Nelson County; and Ohio County formed from part of Hardin County in 1798. So deeds recorded prior to 1798 can be found in Nelson County and Hardin County.
A few deeds of interest that are recorded in Nelson County:
