1Jillson has me somewhere between perplexed and astonished.  How can someone who did so much work with land records have so little (apparent) understanding of land designation?  The data he gives in the "Township" column do not represent the township, they're the aliquot and section.  The data he gives in the "Range" column are the township and range.  There's an explanation of these terms on a page called "GLO Terms and Field Definitions" at the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) web site [link died].  If you're used to the standard designations, Jillson's are hard to read, so I've given the correct ones in the rightmost column.  Trouble is, Jillson hasn't given us all the data, that is, he hasn't given us the direction of the township from the base line and which base line was used.  Perhaps he intended us to assume a baseline and assume a direction (e.g., north), so the designations would be T1N, T2N, T7N, etc., of some East-West base line.  However, there is no standard base line in KY, at least not as given by the map of "Principal Meridians and Base Lines" online at the BLM web site [link died], so it will take some digging to find out what this "special" base line was.
2Yes, this record is a duplicate.  I suspect one of the aliquots is wrong, but no way to tell which one.
Also getting land in the same area:  McGilbra, Eli, James, and Frederick WYATT.
