Breckinridge County was
formed on January 1, 1800 from Hardin County.
Prior to 1800, records for this area would be
found in Hardin County. The county was named for
Attorney General John Breckinridge. Meade County
was formed out of eastern Breckinridge County in
1824, later Hancock county was formed out of
Breckinridge's western border in 1829.
If your ancestor's family suddenly disappears
about the time of these counties being created,
their records, perhaps, may be found in one of
these newly formed counties. Sometimes people
just seem to disappear from where you are
researching, always check the bordering counties
to see if they just moved down the road or a
little further along a waterway. Here are
Breckinridge County's bordering neighbors: Perry
Co., IN; Meade Co., KY; Hardin Co., KY; Grayson
Co., KY; Ohio Co., KY; and Hancock Co., KY. Check
these counties out from time to time for new
clues in your research!
