The next street parallel to Broadway is Clinton, which was named for General George Clinton, who was the first Governor of New York, and was Vice President of the United States ; he was a general in the Continental army and was recognized as one of the staunchest of patriots and was one of the greatest men of that age.
This was the last street that was laid off at that time, and was named in honor of the Governor-general of the Spanish territory in America; at that time the gulf states and the Mississippi river were under the control and belonged to the Spanish govern- ment; Miro was in charge, and he granted to General Wilkin- son some privileges of trade and the free use of the Mississippi river for the transportation of freight.
Some twenty-five years later, General Wilkinson and other prominent Frankfort peo- ple were accused of entering into a conspiracy to transfer the territory of Kentucky over to Miro and the Spanish control. The above named are the only streets which Avere laid off at the time the town was established ; since then the city limits have been extended several times and other streets have been opened and named, the chief of which are High, Hill and Holmes streets all of which were named for local reasons. Cen- ter street or alley was named by the first trustees of the town.
Prior to there were no sidewalks in the town, and the streets were in l ad condition. They were not macadamized for several years after that period, and there were but few carriages or other vehicles except log wagons. It was nine hundred yards long; the descent in this distance was sixty inches.

Richardson, Foreman. Frankfort is a smart little town on the Kentucky river. It is the seat of Government and the Legislature is now sit- ting. Like others it is hidden in a mud hole with fine com- manding sections around it. They liavc begun to pave the main street — in a wav that would make a Ivondon Paviour laugh. Early Western Travels IV. Course of Events from to The population of Franklin County in the year was 5, of that number G28 lived in the town of Frankfort. On Tuesday the 26th day of August of that year, James Roberts was appointed jailer of the county; the appointment or selection, was made by the Court of Quarter Session.
On the 23rd of September, the following orders were entered: "It is ordered that Stephen Arnold and John Price, Gentlemen, they being the oldest Justices commissioned for said county, as fit persons to fill the office of a sheriff of the County for the next term of two years, be recommended to the Governor. The following news item is copied from the Palladium: "Frankfort, May 29, Lewis Marshall of Woodford, to the amiable and accomplished Miss A.

The Frankfort Bridge Company was incorporated Decem- ber 21, , Christopher Greenup, Daniel Weiseger and Wil- liam Trigg were the incorporators; the right was given to erect the bridge from the south end of Ann street to the south side. In the act incorporating the Frankfort Bridge Company was repealed and an act passed authorizing John Pope to erect a bridge across the Kentucky river from the end of Annie Ann street to South Frankfort and fixed the rate of toll, etc. At the same term of the Legislature there was an act authoriz- ing Thomas Tuntstall to erect a bridge across the Kentucky river from the wpst end of Montgomery Main street to his land on the opposite side of the river, "subject to the same rules, regulations, penalties and emoluments as John Pope.
Clair street, Thomas V, Loofburrow and Wil- liam Trigg were authorized to raise by subscription, by stock not to exceed thirty thousand dollars to be composed of shares of one hundred dollars each — "provided said bridge shall not contain more than one pier in the channel of the river, and which pier shall not be less than sixty feet high from its foundation.
The act also provided, if the said bridge was not completed within two years, the said company was to forfeit all rights which had been granted by the Legislature. There was an act approved January 18th, , extending the time of completing the bridge, until 1st day of February, ; this was the first permanent bridge which crossed the river at Frankfort. There was much difficulty in securing a foundation for the south abutment, because of the quicksand found there; the water would rush in at the bottom upon the workmen as fast as they discharged it at the top with pumps and buckets, working day and night.
During the time the bridge was under construction, there was a floating bridge across the Kentucky river from the south end of Ann street, similar to a pontoon bridge; it was constructed of anchored flat boats covered wdth plank for the road way and with railing on each side for protection. Another bridge of the same kind was used at the ferry near the foot of Wilkinson street across to the mouth of Benson Creek ; this ferry had been established by act of the Legislature in the year On June 23rd, , ''Stephen Arnold, Gentleman',-' pre- sented to the Court of Quarter Session a commission from James Garrard, Governor of Kentucky, appointing him sheriff of the county, whereupon he took the oath required by law and entered into bond with Daniel Weiseger and Christopher Greenup as his securities.
At the same time Daniel Weiseger was appointed clerk of the County Court.

This spring is only a short hslanco below the north limit of the city.
At the beginning of the last century news traveled very slow. On December 30, , the Palladium made this state- ment: 'Must as this paper wa. The Electors had voted before he left that state, unanimously for Mr. Jeffer- son ; our informant believes the votes for Vice President were divided between Pickney and Burr. Lynch has been only fifteen days on his journey and was at Camden on the day the Electors met. The County levy for the year was fixed at "six shill- ings per tythable. At the May term , it was ordered that Christopher Greenup, Daniel James and Daniel Weiseger be appointed commissioners "to superintend the building the court house in this county and to lay off the grounds for the court house.
Prior to , Franklin county had no court house; the State house was used for holding court and for all other ofHcial business of the county. The court house was built on the south east corner of Capitol Square, in front of the present executive building, and across Elk Avenue from Kagin Brothers' restaurant. Fleming Trigg was authorized to have stone posts set at the corners of the house to prevent wagons and other vehicles from injuring it. Some time after that, Oliver Waggoner was appointed to superintend the inclosure of that part of the pub- lic square allotted to the county around the court house, and that he procure the necessary styles or steps to be 'made leading in and out from the front of the house.
A post and rail fence was built around the square, the post on each side of the styles was eight inches square and furnished with a fiddle head ; the post had a pin through the top rail of each post. Daniel Weiseger and Daniel James were appointed commissioners to let to the lowest bidder the ''securing the arches of. At the June term, , John Price became the fourth sheriff of the county and Daniel Weiseger was re-appointed clerk.
Bartlett had Ijcen adjudged of unsound mind and wa. The Court of Appeals adjudged that he was entitled to his seat.
The county levy for was one dollar per ''tithe. On December 23, , the Frankfort Water Company wa. Wooden pipes were laid from Cedar Cove spring about three miles out on the Owenton road, along Brown's bottom in to the town. A strong wall about twenty-five or thirty feet high was built across the ravine some distance below the spring, and in that way a reservoir was formed; the pipes used were cedar bored through the center with an inch and a half auger; and they were fastened to each other with wooden pins.
These works supplied Frankfort with water until , when the most approved system then known was established instead. The system of piping the water through cedar, was never a complete success. ITarry Bartlett was appointed sheriff in , and on June the 15th of that year he resigned, and Robert Blackwell was appointed in his place and thereby be- came the sixth sheriff of the county; on November 18th, of the same year Scott Brown was appointed a justice of the peace.
A subscription list with forty-six names attached, form- ing a fire company for the city of Frankfort was ordered to be recorded in the County Clerk's office on December 15, On the same date there was an order entered removing James Roberts, jailer of Franklin county from office, and John A.
The charge upon which Roberts was tried, convicted and removed from office was ''for malpractice in office by charging the county with his services and the fees attending thereto, and for the same services lay- ing his claim before the Circuit Court to be audited with the Auditor of Public Accounts. It was during that year that two alleged conspiracies were unearthed, by parties who were living in Frankfort.
There was the so-called Spanish conspiracy in ivhich it was alleged that Frankfort citizens Avere the chief conspirators, and which is said to have been planned about the year ; and the other one is known as the Burr conspiracy, with Blenerhassett and others about Daviess, who was, at that time. All the country around Frankfort was crazed with excitement ''on the day of the expected trial. Frankfort was crowded and the court house gorged with citizens and strangers. Burr, which was largely attended, and conspicious in the crowd were many officers of both State and Nation. In a short time after this another ball was given in honor of Col.
Daviess, the attorney who pro. Burr was trying to take ad- Aantage of that independent Kentucky sentiment which was rife at that time, to forward his own nefarious and ambitious designs. The 'Spanish conspiracy which the editors of the Western World exposed about the same time the charges of conspiracy were made against Col. Burr, deals more particular- ly with the people of Frankfort and Franklin county.
Street, editors of the Western World, who arrived in Frank- fort in the early part of He says in his history: "Then it may be said, there was seen from the front door of Col. They arrived at the door, entered and are seated; the elder announces him- self to be John Wood and his companion Mr. Street, who had traveled with him from Richmond, in Virginia, on a voyage of adventure for enjoyment and support. John Wood was a professed man of letters ; the other familiar with newspapers and of good capacity.
On July 4, , they agitated the people of Frankfort from center to circumference, about the Burr conspiracy; threats were freely made against tliem. The next edition agitated Frankfort society still more. It was thought that nothing but the death of Street wouM ] re- vent the exposure of Sebastin.

Adams lied l ut was afterwards arrested. Adams was l ailed. IIumi hrey Mar. II, Davie. Street was tried and acquitted, Adams was convicted, but it turned out that the indictment failed to charge "with intent to kill," an omission supposed to have been made on purpose.
The guilt of the accused was conclusive. See Register of State Hist. Society, Sept. Benjamin Sebastin was a pensioner of Spain. These exposures brought on a legislative investigation, and to prevent which Sebastin resigned. Allen B. A memorial wa. The chimerical plan proceeded so far in its effects upon the public mind, that a proposition to form the State into an independ- ent goverinnent was introduced into a convention held about that time to form articles of separation from the State of Yir- ginia.
Green says in his prefatory to the "Spanish conspiracy," published in the year : "A few years after this publication was made by Magru- der, an exposure of the plan to which he referred was made in in the columns of 'The "Western AVorld,' a newspaper published at Frankfort, Kentucky. As an effect of that ex- posure, John Brown, one of the principals engaged in the plan, deemed it expedient at the early age of forty eight to re- tire forever from pul lic life, and, as far as possible, to with- draw himself from public observation, while Seba.
The Legisla- tive investigation which wa. Green shows a bitterness and vindictivencss in "The Spanish Conspiracy" which are not fully justified by the facts and circumstances which surround the ca. Steam cars were not thought to be possible al thai iiiic. The Spanish government had refused to permit the United States to use the waters of the Mississippi for transportation of their freights; a great many Kentuckians doubtless thought that the only thing they could do, in order to reach a market for the produce from the fertile soil of the territory, was to be- come a part of the government which could do the most for them.
Then, too, the bond of union between the states and territories of that early date was not considered in the same light as it has been since the termination of the war between the states. Spillsbee Coleman settled in South Frankfort about the years and established a tan-yard near a spring known then as Brown's Spring, named for Hezekiah Brown who lived adjacent; it was later called Coleman's Spring.
Jeremiah Myers, an inmate of the Frankfort penitentiary, set fire to that institution on the 22nd day of March, , and a part of it was burnt; on trial it was found that the law was not sufficient to punish him. In the year the Legislature pa. It was in operation for only a short time. Mitchell resigned as jailer of the county, and Pa. At the same term of court Elisha Herndon was appointed constable on the south side of the river, and Daniel Weiseger was re-ap- pointed clerk of the County Court. On August 5, , Robert Blackwell became the eighth sheriff of the county, and Christopher Greenup produced a commis.
William McBrayer became the 9th sheriff of the county, June 19, ; John Arnold was re-appointed magistrate and at the same term of court it was ordered that the fence around the court should be extended around the pul lic square so as to include the Capitol and court house. John Milam was ap- pointed his administrator and Scott Brown was appointed to ap- l raise the "slaves and personal estate" left by him. The de- scendants of all the above named parties have been prominent ill Franklin county during the past century.
Steel's ferry was establi. Zadock Cramer, editor of the Navi- gator pul liyhed at Pittsburg, Pa. He said that Frankfort had three printing offices, one book-store, a circulating library, book bindery, eighteen mer- cantile stores and one State Bank ; he also said in his article that a ''steamboat, that is, a large boat to be propelled by the power of steam," was on the stocks a short distance above Frankfort.
On motion of Martin D. Hardin on February 19th, , John J. A list of the attorneys at the Frankfort bar in the year , included Martin D. Hardin, John J. Blackburn, Thomas C. Lewis, Robert B. Isham Talbott, one of the leading lawyers of Frankfort, was in the habit of walking with his head thrown back. On one occasion a man by the name of Williams was digging a Avell and had gotten down about ten feet. Talbott came along, with his head up, and fell in the well on top of Williams; and this so enraged him that he called AVilliams a damn thief be- cause he failed to warn him of his danger.
Talbott was very profane. The county records show he was presented and fined several times for using profane language. During the year both of the ] ridges across Elkhorn creek, at the Forks, were rebuilt by the County Court. On June 17th, , John M. Scott was appointed sheriff of the county; and at the same term of court Martin D. Hardin presented his commission as justice of the pX3ace in, and for the county. On December 16, , Daniel Weiseger resigned as County Clerk, and William Trigg was ''unanimously" ap- pointed to take that position. Martin D. Hardin and John Morris were appointed a committee to inspect the clerk's of- fice; on the same date a hogshead of tobacco marked ''J.
During the year it was "ordered that part of the prison bounds that include Captain Taylor's old stable be taken off, and the like quantity Ije ex- tended up Montgomery street in such manner as to include Samuel's tavern, thence down to the former boundary ] y Cap- tain Weiseger's.
Scott having died in office sheriff William Hall was commissioned sheriff' of the county, December 21, In the early part of , "the Kentuckians, more at- tentive to the voice of distress, than to the laws of their country volunteered to the number of sixty or seventy men, under the command of Col. Anthony Crockett, and Captain John Arnold, and were marched to Vincennes to see what was the matter, and ten days after, marched home again, to tell they knew not what. This company was composed entirely of Franklin County men. The most dire calamity that ever befell the people of Franklin County happened during this decade to The history of the war between the United States and Great Britain; the causes which led up to it and the sequences which followed it are a part of national history.
The United States army in the northwest was composed almost exclusively of Kentuckians, a history of which is properly a part of the history of the State. Franklin County, however, did more than her just proportional part; she furnished more men, and more money, and she gave more of her heroic blood for the honor and glory of this great country than could have rea- sonably been expected from one community. There were two full companies enlisted from Franklin County; the first under Paschal or Perchal Hickman as cap- tain was mustered into the service August 15, , and was known as Captain Paschal Hickman's company, first rifle regiment, Kentucky militia ; it was engaged or enlisted to Octo- ber 14, Voorhies, Ensign.

James Wilson, William West. George Yancy. The eighty-six men composing this company were all killed at the battle of the River Raisin, except thirteen of them, only twelve of whom are known at this date to have returned to their homes in Franklin county, to-wit: Lieut. Ilolton, Z. The order of battle at the River Rasin wa. Colonel John Allen, commanding the right wing; Major Graves, the left; and Major jNladison, the centre; Captain Bal- lard acting Major was placed in advance of the whole with two companies, one company commanded by Captain Hick- man, Subaltern Lieut.
Chinn, the other by Captain Graves. Captain Hickman was severely wounded and was carried from the battlefield, both of his legs were shot off, or were so l adly mangled that they were amputated the next morning, January 23, The Indians were permitted by General Proctor to slaugh- ter his wounded and defenseless captives, ''Captain Hickman was rudely dragged to the door, his brains dashed out with the tomaliawk and his body thrown back into the house. Woodward, Judge of the Supreme Court of the territory of Michigan, in a letter to General Proctor, dated De- troit, February 2, , stated that some of the prisoners after tlie capitulation of the 22nd of January had been tomahawked and others had been shot and still others had been burnt at the stake l y the savages.

Theobald, a lawyer from Frankfort, wa. This was the method adopted by Col. Johnson to locate the enemy ; of these twenty men only one escaped unhurt, fifteen of them were shot dead. Richard M. Johnson with a dozen wounds still sat erect, his Judge Advocate Theobald , close to his side. In the history of the world there has never been recorded a braver act than was performed by Samuel A. Theobald on that 5th day of October, Following the battle of the Thames there were a large number of English prisoners brought to Frankfort, Kentucky, and confined for a considerable period in the State penitentiary.
The officers vigorously resented this treatment which they designated "ignominious," but little sympathy was aroused on their account. The murders and barbarities at Raisin and Meigs had not put these men of the Forty-first Regiment in a position to ask or expect much from Kentuckians. These pris- oners were subsequently exchanged, but not for some months.
After the battle of the Raisin the bodies of the dead soldiers were left unburied, and were devoured by dogs and hogs. In September of the. The removal to Kentucky was prior to the time the present cemetery was purchased and a part of it dedicated to Kentucky heroes. At that time the cemetery was back of Thorn Hill, and even tradition is silent as to whether or not these bones were removed to the new cemetery. James Y. Love, the only son of Mrs. Elizabeth Love, joined Captain Dudley's company.
She wa. Love was noted for her social and Christian virtues. For many years she and her husband were proprietors of a hotel known as the "Love House," where they entertained Aaron Burr, and other noted men of that day. She was re- markable for her personal beauty and grace of manner, and her literary attainments were marvelous considering the age and the section of the country in which she lived. She was a woman of strong character; on one occasion when she was a young lady, the Prince, afterward King of the French, was traveling through the United States, she attended a ball given in honor of the Kino;.
He was struck with her oraceful move- THE HISTORY OF FRANKLIN COUNTY, 61 meiittf, and commanding air, and did her the honor to single her ont as his partner for the dance; she decHncd this fhittering preference to the mortification of the Prince and to the surprise of all, but her reason for not dancing was that she had only a few moments before refused to dance with one of her neigh- bor's sons, and if she must give offense she would rather offend the illustrious foreigner than one of her own companions and countrymen ; she tried at all times to be just ; she sought for the right and when found she fearlessly followed it.
She was one of the great women of this country. It was she who established the first Saljbath schools in this country, and which were also the first established in this State; her influence was always for good. For a period of fifty years she was a resident of Frankfort. Anthony Crockett, a native of Virginia. He was born in ; he enlisted in the Revolutionary war in , and only left the army when peace was declared ; he was at White Plains, Brandy wine, Monmouth, Saratoga, Germantown, Princeton and Trenton.
At the battle of Brandywine when LaFayette was severely wounded Col.
Crockett took him in his arms and carried him to a place of safety. When General LalViyette visited Frankfort in he expressed great pleasure in meet- ing him again. In he came to Kentucky and purchased from his brother-in-law, James Arnold, a tract of land located on the Lawrenceburg road about three miles south of Frankfort, which tract of land remained in the hands of his descendants for more than a century.
When the war of came on he was exempt from military service, but he volunteered and rendered valiant service, though he was then an old man. For thirty years he was Sergeant at Arms of the Kentucky Senate. He was a man of fine physique, six feet three inches in height ; he was gentle by nature, but fearless and valiant in battle. In the year William Arnold and John A.
McDowell were admitted to practice law in all the courts at Frankfort. On the same day Silas M. Mitchell was commissioned Sheriff, with John J. Marshall and others as his sureties.
