April 18, Jinney Adams

Jinney was killed by an Indian Chief named Thunder and was the first person to be buried in Fort Paint Lick. Interesting name, isn't it? The Fort was and and now the village is named for the creek, along whose banks the Indians painted symbols on the rocks and trees in bright colors to indicate the most likely places where animals could be hunted when they came to lick the salt.
