And more,
The salt wells south of Vanceburg are mentioned in Collins (two salt
wells three
houndred feet deep) , and in several other publications (Frenchmen there
as
early as 1760 making salt)

Best for exact location:    In Talley's Northeast Ky , 1971
p. 94:  "The first house on Salt Lick was at the Saltwells about a mile
south of
Vanceburg, at Dry Run, built by John McDaniel.  Another cabin nearby was
built by Isaac Holbert."
p 94/95:  "Near the McDaniel cabin at the salt wells at Dry Run was built
what
was to become the best know house in the county, the old "Hunter's Home"
SOOO?  Salt works on Salt Lick AT Dry Run
