PREFACE 

The present work was undertaken at the suggestion of Judge 
Samuel M. Wilson, the noted lawyer, historian and genealogist of 
Lexington, Kentucky. 

The plan of the work, as originally conceived, was to compile 
an index merely of the names of all persons, as they appear in the 
five volumes of Littell's Laws of Kentucky. However, as the work 
progressed, it developed that identical names from time to time 
appeared in the series of enactments collected by Littell, which the 
context showed often referred to entirely different persons. It seemed 
desirable, therefore, in order to avoid confusion, to show further, in 
the index, as concisely as possible, the connection in which mention 
of any name is made. 

As the volumes of Littell's Laws furnish a fair view and exposi- 
tion of the early development of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, it 
has, likewise, seemed desirable to include, in addition to the names 
of individuals, an index of schools, newspapers, and corporations 
formed for public purposes, such as those for the opening of streams 
to navigation, the building of roads, and the like, and of corpora- 
tions engaged in manufacturing enterprises. As showing the growth 
and trend of the tobacco industry, there is appended an index of all 
»^inspection sites established by law. Much more, not here specified, 
^^will be found covered by the contents of the present index. 

With the hope that it will be of interest and value to historians 
;as well as genealogists, and not without use to the members of the 
^legal profession, this work is respectfully dedicated to my friend 
and counsellor, Judge Samuel M. Wilson. 

W. T. Smith.

INTRODUCTION 

As set forth in the preface by the author, Mr. W. T. Smith, of 
the Lexington Bar, this Index to "The Statute Law of Kentucky," 
as compiled and edited by the Honorable William Littell and pub- 
lished in five volumes, between the years 1809 and 1819, and com- 
monly called " Littell 's Laws," is the result of a suggestion offered 
by the undersigned several years ago. The suggestion, perhaps, owed 
its origin to the fact that a similar index of "Personal Names in 
Hening's Statutes at Large of Virginia and Shepherd's Continua- 
tion" was prepared and published in 1896 by Joseph J. Casey, Esq., 
and that work had been frequently consulted and found most useful 
by the present writer, " Littell 's Laws" bears much the same rela- 
tion to the early history of Kentucky that "Hening's Statutes" bears 
to the early history of Virginia. To the student of history and 
genealogy, no less than to the student of law, both of these works are 
indispensable. Approximately 5,000 proper names will be found 
listed in this compilation. Frequently it will occur that some name 
or the act from which it is taken furnishes little more than a bare 
clue to the identity, family or other social or business relationships, 
or the history of the individual mentioned, but it is by the aid of 
such frail clues that the genealogist or historical inquirer is often- 
times enabled to pursue his quest to a successful conclusion. Speak- 
ing from long personal experience, we feel safe in saying that " Lit- 
tell 's Laws" constitute a veritable storehouse of genealogical and 
historical lore, to be found nowhere else in any publication of which 
we have knowledge. But such lore must remain a sealed record 
without a key to unlock its treasures. Fortunately, at the expendi- 
ture of much time and labor and despite serious handicaps, Mr. 
Smith has carried out his voluntary undertaking to an eminently 
satisfactory and successful termination. The tedious and exacting 
task thus faithfully performed deserves and, we trust, will receive 
a generous reward in the prompt recognition of the merit of the 
work and its hearty reception by all persons interested in exploring 
and elucidating the fascinating history of Kentucky during the 
period of its infancy. We commend without reserve the entire volume 
here presented. 

Samuel M. Wilsox. 

Lexington, Kentucky, January 1, 1931. 



WILLIAM LITTELL 

William Littell, the compiler of "Littell's Laws of Kentucky," is 
believed to have been born in New Jersey, about the year 1780, and to 
have been a second-cousin of the founder of the Living Age. This 
relationship, however, has not been positively established. What seems 
to rest on a firmer foundation is the fact that he was a brother of 
Absalom Littell, of New Albany, Indiana, and it is probable that he 
came to Kentucky from Indiana about 1804. He was first educated 
for the ministry, but abandoned that calling, studied medicine and 
practiced for a short time in Mt. Sterling, Ky. He next turned his 
attention to the law, and, in consequence of his legal attainments, ex- 
hibited mainly in his painstaking work as a compiler and editor, the 
degree of LL.D. was conferred upon him by Transylvania University 
in 1810. Collins, the historian, states that "he was a lawyer of no 
special reputation except as a land lawyer, a laborious workman, 
[and] a constant student." His erudition and industry, however, 
were undeniable. His contributions to the early political history of 
Kentucky Avere valuable, but his fame rests chiefly on his law com- 
pilations. 

Littell married, January 22, 1816, Martha (Irwin) McCracken, a 
sister of John M. C. Irwin, of Fayette County, and widow of Elijah 
McCracken. He was twice married but the name of his wife, by his 
first marriage, has not been ascertained. He died in Frankfort, Ky., 
September 26, 1824, survived by his widow and two sons, William, 
born of the first marriage, and Philander, born of the second. Both 
were minors and Littell's will named as their guardians two ministers, 
one of whom was the celebrated George T. Chapman of Lexington. 
He died in straitened circumstances, leaving practically all of his 
property to his son, William, with the result that the General As- 
sembly, in January, 1825, passed a special act for the relief of the 
younger son. Philander. This act recited that the testator's "prop- 
erty was not enough to pay his debts, unless sold by a person who 
has the interest of his estate at heart, who may thus pay his debts, 
and save something for his infant son." 

Littell was renowned for his eccentricities, and Collins states that 
he was for a "part of his life a man of bad morals." No sufficient 
evidence of this, however, has been di.scovered, and it is, perhaps, an 
overstatement. 

In 1805, he entered into a contract with the Commonwealth to col- 
lect and publish the Statute Laws of Kentucky, in three volumes,
