So we need to do some homework. It is good that many already know and the others can look and search on their own.
Within a one acre area are five mineral springs all of different waters and it is said to be the only place in the world where such a condition occurs.
We all know "Petroleum Oil" was not being looked for in 1700s or 1800s.
Sulphur and other such mineals had been in great use at that time with animals as well as humans.
there are also oil springs. As we all must know the Indians had use for only one type of oil spring, just as it was, "Water and Minerals."
Oil Springs in this case and area whose healing and medicinal waters were used by the Indians (as well as animals) long before America was discovered. The springs are both sulphur and chalybeate. Like others in the vicinity, they contain traces of petroleum.
The overflow from the springs forms Lulbegrud Creek.
Oil Springs was once a popular resort with a hotel and servants quarters. The owner moved in 1895 to the oil springs property which had been in his family since the first settlement. The popular resort had been conducted since before the Civil war times.

Tenskwatawa The famous Shawnee prophet, twin brother of Tecumseh prominent in Indian ancan history immediately before the war of 1812.His original name was Lalawethika, referring to a rattle or similar instrument. According to one account he was noted in his earlier years for stupidity and intoxication; but one day, while lighting his pipe in his cabin, he fell back apparently lifeless and remained in that condition until his friends had assembled for the funeral, when he revived from his trance, quieted their alarm, and announced that he had been conducted to the spirit world. Nov. 1805 just over 30 years of age he was the bearer of new revelation. Being taken up to the spirit world he began exhortation, denouncing witchcraft, medicine juggleries, firewater, young must cherish the old and respect and infirm, property was to be common, Indian women cease to intermarry white men that the races were distinct and must remain so. Also white mens dress, flint, steel, firestick and every tool to be put away.

The pre-historic inhabitants of Kentucky were at some inderminate period overwhelmed by a tide of savage invasion from the north, is a piont upon which Indian tradition is positive and explicit. It is related upon good authority that Col. James Moore, of Kentucky, was told by an old Indian, that the primative inhabitants of this state had perished in a war of ex-termination waged against them by the Indians; that the last great battle was fought on the Ohio, and that the Indians succeded in driving the Aborigines into a small island below the rapids, where the whole of them were cut to pieces. This the Indian said was undoubted fact handed down by tradition, and that the Colonel would have proofs of it under his eyes as soon as the waters of the Ohio became low. When the waters of the river had fallen, an examination of Sandy Island was made, and a multitude of human bones was discovered. There is a similar confirmation by the chief Tobacco, in a conversation with Gen. Clarke. It is said that the Indian chief Cornstalk told substantially the same story to Col. McKee. The chief said that Ohio and Kentucky had once been settled by white people who were familiar with arts of which the Indians knew nothing; that these whites, after a series of bloody contests with the Indians had been exterminated; that the old burial places were the graves of an unknown people, and that the old forts had not been built by the Indians, but had come down from very long ago people who were of a white complection, and skilled in the arts. In addition to this traditional testimony, various and striking traces of a deadly conflict have been found all along the Ohio border. And doubtless says Dr. Pickett from whose article the matter of this topic is largely drawn the familiar appellation of the dark and bloody ground originated in the gloom and horror with which the Indian imagination naturally invested the traditional scences and events of that strange and troubled period. It is not improbable that the bloodiest battles were fought on the navigable streams, and judging from the nature of the fort ifications in northern Kentucky, this state was the scene of some of the sternest conflicts. Kentucke in the Indian laguage meaning the river of blood was a land of ill repute, and wherever a lodge fire blazed, strange and unholy rumors were busy with its name. Indians could not fully understand how white people could live in a country where such conflicts had filled the land with ghosts of its slaughtered inhabitants.

It is known that, while the present area of Kentucky was, at the earliest times, the theatre of severe Indian conflicts, stratagems, and bloody battles, these efforts of fierce contending warriors were made by tribes, who, during all the historical period of our information, crossed the Ohio from the west. The fierce Shawnee and wily Delaware remained in the counrty but for a short time. They landed at secret points, as hunters and warriors, and had no permanent redidence within its boundaries. Such were the incessant bloody attacks and depredations made by these and their kindred tribes, both prior and subsequent to the American Revolution. The history of the state was, indeed, bathed in blood, and seajed with the deaths of some of the noblest and freest of men. At the early day, the head of the Kentucky River became a favorite and important point of embarkaton for the Indians moving, in predatory or hunting bands, from south to north and west. The Shawnee, after their great defeat by the Cherokees, took that route, and this people always considered themselves to have claims to these attractive hunting grounds, where deer, the elk, buffalo, and bear abounded claims, indeed, whose only foundation was blood and plunder. The history of these events is rife with the highest degree of interest, but cannot here be entered on. Cont...............

Cont..The following letter, from one of the early settlers of the country, is given as showing the common tradition that, while the area of Kentucky was perpetually fought for, as a cherished part of the Indian hunting ground, it was not in fact, permanetly occupied by any tribe. The writers Mr. Joseph Flicklins attention was but incidentally called to the subject. His letter, which is in answer to a copy of our pamphlet of printed inquiries, bears date at Lexington, 31st of August 1847. I have opened your circular addressed to Dr. Jarvis agreeably to your request and beg leave to remark that I have myself an acquaintance with the Indian history of this state from the year 1781, and that nothing is known here connected with your inquiries, save the remains of early settlements too remote to allow of any evidence of the character of the population, except that it must have been nearly similar to that of the greater portion which once occupied the rest of the states of the Union. There is one fact favorable to this state, which belongs to few if any of the sister states. We have not to answer to any tribunal, for the crime of driving off the Indian tribes, and possessing their land. There were no Indians located within our limits on our taking possession of this counrty. A disconented portion of the Shawnee tribe from Virginia broke off from the nation, which removed to the Scioto country, in Ohio,about the year 1730 and formed a town, known by the name of Lulbegrud, in what is now Clark County about 30 miles east of this place. The tribe left this counrty about 1750, and went to East Tennessee, to the Cherokee nation. Soon after, they returned to Ohio and joined the rest of the nation after spending a few years on the Ohio River, giving name to Shawnee-Town in the state of Illinois, a place of some note at this time. This information is founded on the account of the Indians at the first settlement of this state, and since confirmed by Black-Hoof, a native of Lulbegrud, who visited this counrty in 1816, and went on the spot descibing the water-streams and hills in a manner to satisfy every body that he was acquainted with the place. I claim no credit for this state in escaping the odium of driving off the savages, because I hold that no people have any claim to a whole counrty for a hunting or robbing residence, on the score of living, for a brief period on a small part of it. Our right to North Mexico, California, and Texas, is preferable to any other nation, for the simple reason that we alone subdue the savages and rubbers, and place it under a position which was intended by the crearor of the world, as explained to the father of our race.

R u serious ? You think WHITE people were the ones building the mounds, and other native American artifacts ? That's foolish. That's how brainwashed Kentuckians are. 2 outta 5 can't even read, and lots of apologetic historians pretend like all of the Indians left, and would only visit Kantuk to hunt, like during the afternoons, and then leisurely stroll back into the woods... so this means that white people were just stealing land that nobody was living on... in spite of the millions of dead Indian carcass's that were staining Boone's raccoon hat, and legacy. So first, all of the Indians left, but it didn't even matter, because all of their civilization's accomplishments weren't by the Indians, it was by WHITE people, who I guess happen to have got to the New World before Columbus ? Please...
White people did not build the Indian burial mounds. The Indians did that. And the town of Eskippakithiki was burned down the ground, by white man's hands. Probably something to do with John Finley.
The white man wiped out the Indians, and justice still needs to happen. What was okay for the paleface yesterday is good for them today. Time to reap what you sowed white people!

How is the white man gonna declare war on terrorism when he's been the world's main terrorizer since 1492 ? The white man killed the Kentucky Indians, and pretend like he didn't. White man lynced black folks, and pretends like he didn't. White man killing more folks today, in Africa, Middle East... it's not stop. Every where the white man goes, he murders, and kills, and maims, and destroys, and these sick bastards get a hardon to the havoc they have wrought... some of the topix trash from above shows how proud ignorant backward stupid racist rednecks are, he says he "whooped" Indians... genocide isn't a fight. Genocide is a war crime, and justice says those who genocide, should be genocided.
White man is a barbaric terrorist, and that's why none of these topix trash folks have said anything about their Native American roots, because they want to sweep it all under the rug. Your parents have been lying to you kids. White is not right. White means you're a murderer, and you support the murders of Eskippakithiki. I bet you don't even know how to pronounce Eskippakithiki, do ya ?
Are you Native American? You wouldn't be typing on a computer keyboard today if your people were not defeated in battle. You would be hunting rabbits and deer with a bow and arrows and drinking filthy creek water and dying from dysentery at age 27.

Deer, rabbit taste pretty good, the creek water was clear and good until you cut the trees an farmed the banks to mud, also dumping your sewage in the creek does not help. I can remember being able to see the bottom of 30+ creek water holes when I was a kid and being able to watch fish swim at the bottom. I can remember this being a 55 year old man, swimming and the creeks and rivers as a child. I drank the water many times back then, never had dysentery. Dysentery comes from sewage being dumped into water.
