Is there a map that depicts the location of Kentucky land patents?

0

No. Patents are not mapped as they are issued. For that reason, there are overlaps on many lands claimed by patents. The fact that patents have been issued since 1779, and no patent map was kept by the Virginia Land Office from 1779 to 1792 or by the Kentucky Land Office since statehood, compounds the problem of identifying rightful owners under junior and senior patents.
