Hi Chris,
I would like to add to the one message and say that Col. John Grant was not a saltworks worker, but the owner, operator of the property, salt well and the salt works. This all occurred before Kentucky was a state so it could not have been named for Ulysses S. Grant and his horses at the lick.
The story is still around about Grant's Army leaving gold somewhere in that area. BUT I CAN FIND NO INFO ON GRANT"S ARMY EVER BEING THAT FAR IN THE NORTHERN PART OF KY.
Good luck in your research,
Martha & Jerry
