Names of Kentucky Ancestors --- > Breckinridge County


Breckinridge County Wills, Estates, Deeds

BreckinridgeBreckinridge County was established in 1799 from a portion of Hardin County. When Abraham Lincoln was seven years old, his father, Thomas Lincoln and his family spent a few weeks in Hardinsburg and occupied a small cabin near what is now the Kentucky FFA Leadership Training Camp. The Lincolns left Kentucky by crossing the Ohio River at Cloverport on a log ferry operated by Jacob Weatherholt. The Confederate Army burned the local court being used by Union troops as barracks during the War Between the States. The third court house was burned in 1958. The county is known for its Victoria Coal Mines, named after Queen Victoria, when the Cloverport exported coal oil used to light Buckingham Palace.
