The Commonwealth of Kentucky was created in 1792 and just seven years later Livingston County was formed from Christian County, making it one of the older counties in the state.
Unlike other western Kentucky counties, Livingston did not record estate records in will books. Instead they are found in the county court order books, loose county clerk's papers and, begining in 1822, inventories, sale bills and settlements were recorded in a seperate book.
In order to make this book as complete as possible, all of these records, plus selected circuit court records, were searched and transcribed.
The year 1842 was chosen as the stopping point for this book as, by that time, the counties
of Caldwell (1809), Trigg (1820 from Caldwell and Christian) and Crittenden (1842) had been created from Livingston County.
