A national manufacturer and installer of retail mall and storefront signs asked our TRADITION LIEN SERVICE division to record a KENTUCKY Statement of Mechanics Lien on a shopping center located in Paintsville, KY within Johnson County. According to Wikipedia, Johnson County was formed in 1843 and named for Richard Mentor Johnson, War of 1812 general, United States Representative, Senator, and Vice President of the United States.
