States: Kentucky: Estill
You might already know this, but Buffalo Creek and Rockhouse Branch are currently in Owsley County. Also Sturgeon Creek lies partly in Owsley and Lee. Owsley was formed partly from Estill and Clay in 1843 and Lee was formed partly from Estill and Owsley in 1870. The land transactions you have for your ancestor show him in this same general area, so that is probably where he lived and was buried (1817-1835). Since he lived before Owsley and Lee were formed, the records show him in Estill and Clay. You might be able to find more information by including the other counties in your search. Good Luck.
