  • Notes 
    • "WILLIAM MEDLEY started making whiskey on his farm on Cartright's Creek near St. Rose's in Springfield, Kentucky. He made his living as a distiller. From a ledger which he kept from 3/1841 until 12/1850 he sold fine prime bourbon in quantity lots at 24 cents per gallon. Besides his distillery he also had a blacksmith shop and general food store. There were numerous entries for repairing stills so he was familiar with the coopersmith trade as well. WILLIAM died of 'typhus fever' on 3/6/1853 in Washington County, Kentucky at the young age of 37." [John Medley (1615-1660), citation details below]
