More about this marker. This marker is on the southwest corner of the intersection, and in Boyle County. Google Streetview shows it just a few feet from the intersection of U.S. 150 and Airport Road. However, the Kentucky Historical Society online list locates it in Lincoln County, which is a few hundred feet south of the intersection on U.S. 150. Airport Road. Airport Road also promptly enters Lincoln County.
Captain Given’s homesite was in Lincoln County. You can consider this marker a Lincoln County historical marker that was placed outside of the county to better point to the road that would take you there.
Regarding Capt. George Givens. In 1985, the family burial plot originally located on Capt. George Givens’ homesite was relocated to Buffalo Springs Cemetery in Stanford in Lincoln County when the airport in Boyle County was preparing to extend its runway.
