All Kreutzer Finds - by state, by year, by county

Background Info: Kentucky Statehood began in 1792, so records previous to that were actually located in Virginia. Jefferson County was organized in 1780 and one of the first three counties formed out of the original Kentucky County, which was still part of Virginia at the time, the other two being Fayette and Lincoln. The county is named for Thomas Jefferson, who was governor of Virginia at the time. The last major American Indian raid in present day Jefferson County was the Chenoweth Massacre on July 17, 1789. Louisville which is the county seat was named for King Louis XVI of France in appreciation for his assistance during the Revolutionary War, Louisville was founded by George Rogers Clark in 1778.Early settlements of Kentucky include Harrodsburg in 1774 and Boonesboro, founded 1775 by Daniel Boone. Between 1776 and 1780, Kentucky was known as Kentucky County, Virginia. Jefferson County was established in 1780 from Kentucky County, VA. In 1784-5, Nelson County was established from Jefferson. In 1792, Shelby was established from Jefferson. In 1796-7, Bullitt County was established from Jefferson and Nelson.

1790 and 1800 Federal Kentucky census records are missing, however, there are reconstructed lists created from tax lists and published in book form. These provide somewhat of a census substitute. Soundex code indexes for Federal Kentucky census records are available on microfilm for census years: 1880, 1900, 1910, 1920 and part of 1930 which contains only Bell, Floyd, Harlan, Kenton, Muhlenberg, Perry and Pike Counties.

Background Info: 1868 - Vanderburgh County IN. Archives History - Businesses, Evansville 1868
The county seat of Vandevburg county, and the most important city on the Ohio river between Louisville and Cairo. It is situated at the terminus of the Evansville & Crawfordsville railroad, nine miles from the mouth of Green river, up which steamboats run about two hundred miles into Kentucky; sixty miles above the mouth of the Wabash, by which a large tract of country, embracing Western Indiana, and considerable of Eastern Illinois, finds an outlet for its production; and less than one hundred and fifty miles from the mouths of the Cumberland and Tennessee rivers, which penetrate far toward the Gulf, all of which bring to this city, a large share of their commerce and trade. From this advantageous location, and its position on the Ohio river, below all serious obstructions, and in the direct line of traffic with the lower Mississippi, it is the largest and most important commercial city in the State, and enjoys a more extensive and remunerative trade than many of its larger sisters. It is backed by a fine agricultural region, is situated in the midst of the Ohio Valley coal fields, and possesses many advantages for manufacturing. With all the elements of prosperity immediately within her grasp. Evansville cannot fail to become a populous and a leading metropolis.

Evansville was first laid out in 1813, and became the county seat of Vanderburgh county in 1818. It barely maintained a corporate existence for many years, and not until 1845, as the country was recovering from the revulsion of 1837, did it take any decided steps toward improvement. Since then, its prosperity has been steady and substantial. It now numbers a population of nearly 25,000. Its public buildings and private residences will compare favorably with cities of larger population, while its citizens are eminently energetic and enterprising. Its steamboat arrivals have exceeded two thousand annually for the past five years, and its railroad facilities, though at present limited to a single line, are in a fair way of rapid extension. -Source: , Book Title: H.

1906 Madison County IN Archives Obituaries.....Kreutzer, Philip G.
Anderson Morning Herald, July 17, 1906
The remains of Philip Kreutzer were laid to rest yesterday in Maplewood cemetery after very impressive funeral ceremonies. Hundreds of his friends and relatives viewed the remains Sunday and up till 9 o'clock Monday, and the floral offerings that surrounded the casket were some of the most beautiful ever seen in this city. The Rev. Reese, pastor of St. John's Lutheran church, spoke in a very touching manner of Mr. Kreutzer, and his remarks were the most impressive. The funeral was a very large one. He was a member of the Elks lodge, but that body did not have charge of the funeral, although many of them attended and paid their last tributes to their brother. File at:
