Burton Ridge[edit]

I added a section on Burton Ridge and made an article for it. There is a lot of History around Burton Ridge so I made it another article.N9urk 23:44, 4 March 2006 (UTC)

Adair County[edit]

Greetings,

My website is ExplorationKentucky.com

I have a section about the Historical sites in Adair County, Kentucky. I think my link on this page might be helpful.

I am new to Wikipedia, so I'm not sure if I'm doing this correctly or not.

Thanks,

Errors?[edit]

OK, something doesn't tally here. If the county was formed in 1801, then it wasn't named after John Adair, the Governor of Kentucky, but after John Adair who was then in Kentucky House of Representatives. Either the date of the foundation is wrong, or it's a wrong John Adair, or the sentence describing the origins of the name need to be re-written (the county couldn't have been named after the Kentucky Governor, as Adair didn't become one until 1820, well after the county's foundation). Thoughts?—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); October 30, 2010; 18:06 (UTC)

The county was indeed named after General Adair in 1801, who later was elected Governor of KY. From the county website "n 1801, Adair County - Kentucky's 44th county - was formed from Green County. It was named for General Adair, who never lived here, but served with Col. William Casey in early Kentucky government. Adair was Speaker of the House in Kentucky at that time. Casey's name was given to a county five years later. He is the only Adair County resident to have a county namesake. [1] - Gilliam (talk) 03:38, 31 October 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, it makes sense. What doesn't make sense, however, is that the article says that "the county is named for John Adair, Governor of Kentucky 1820-24", followed by "it was formed... in 1801" :) I'm not sure how to fix these two sentences best.

Thanks! It makes a lot more sense now.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); November 10, 2011; 16:56 (UTC)

Dakota Meyer[edit]

I think someone should add onto the list of notable people from this county Corporal Dakota Meyer, first living Marine in 38 years to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor. I wrote a short discussion essay for an English class based on him. I believe he is from Columbia, Kentucky, the county seat of this county. - Sgt. Eric Reed, USMC, sgt_r_usmc@yahoo.com
