Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
I've never heard of that particular flood, but here is an Owen County Map:
which shows Brush Creek and Brush Creek Road running North of Jonesville
near the Grant County line. It is also West of Jonesville. This Brush
Creek seems to feed directly or indirectly into Eagle Creek in Grant
County. It is near Poplar Grove but not near the Kentucky River.

I am looking for any information on the flooding of Brush Creek in the year of 1866. In or near Poplar Grove a family
of NINE (9) and their home was washed away. The family was a family of Noel's. I think Brush Creek runs from Grant or perhaps Gallatin counties and Poplar Grove is Owen County. Brush Creek runs to Kentucky River as I understand it. This was followed by a very bad winter with deep snows so the story goes. My grand father lived in Owenton as well as my Paternal GGrand father.My question; Is there a book or news print about this disaster? Thank You!!
Welcome to the KYOWEN mailing list!!
PLEASE SAVE THIS INFORMATION so you have it for future reference.
PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE of your fellow list members. Some folks are beginners at computers and some to genealogy. The world is a better place when we are all patient with each other. Personal attacks, criticism, or flaming are never permitted.

WHAT SHOULD YOU POST?
1. Questions about your ancestors. Give as much detail as you can.
2. Interesting history that is relevant to the list.
3. Genealogy and family history conferences, even if they charge for admission.
4. Genealogy societies should feel free to post about their society and their websites.

2. When replying to a previous message, be sure to check that the intended recipient's address is showing in the Send To box of your email BEFORE clicking on SEND.
