Billy Joe Fudge: I now know how Columbus must have felt

By Billy Joe Fudge

I was just satisfying my addiction to maps and made an amazing discovery while perusing Adair County on Google maps. It seems, according to Google Maps, that Portland, Milltown and Columbia are located on and along the banks of Green River.

It seems that Green River begins at the confluence of Russell Creek and Little Clifty Creek, just about a half mile North of the intersection of Freedom Church Road and Ivy Lane.

I now know how Columbus must have felt but my one overarching question is; how could Mike and Jim have missed this tidbit of information while searching the annals of Adair County History? - Billy Joe Fudge
