MONTGOMERY COUNTY EARLY HISTORY

 

Pioneers Reached This Section of "Old Caintuck" in the Year 1776

 

The early settlers did not bring their families from Virginia until1791-92. The branch above the Calk cabin was then called Calk's creek,Hinkston was then called Small Mountain creek, and was so known for manyyears to the early settlers. It received its name from Captain JohnHinkston, noted Indian fighter.

 

The next visitors and settlers of whom we can find any trace is preserved were Benjamin White, Nicholas Anderson, John Harper, William Meteer,James Poage, Edward Williams, Peter Harper and Samuel Spurgin, some of whome came to a point on the waters of Slate 3 or 4 miles from Estill's battleground, where they marked a large black ash with the letters "White1779." Here was built a house for White and one for Harper. Meteer, Poage and Spurgeon settled near Mt. Sterling with their families in 1792.

 

1817 PETER HELMS bought from Joseph & Elizabeth Young 200 acres on Spencer Creek for $4000. Adjacent to Nicholas Anderson, Robert Botts inMontgomery County, KY No witnesses. (DB 8, p. 238-9)

 

BIOGRAPHY: Transcript of pension file for Pvt. George Hardwick (#S.8674) who served from Lawrence Co., KY

 

The Company divided into scouting parties and while the settlers were at work making corn? the powder had got scarce and he was sent up to three?forks of Kentucky River at a salt? cave about 2 miles up the north fork and on the north side of the Kentucky River but three went, to wit Elaunders Callaway a brothers son of Col. Callaway and Benjamin Dunaway.This was in the month of July 1780. We arrived at the afso place and worked hard and made enough powder to do the fort. The powder was carried down in a canoe down the Kentucky river during this time? No Indians molested us from making powder. In Sep 1780 we got back to the fort and continued to scout until the leaves were all fallen. The Indians did not annoy or attack the fort or kill any of the settlers that winter 1780 but in Oct past he went with Boone to the Blue Licks at the lower to make salt forts? and the Indians broke us up and took several and all the kettles. He returned to Boonsboro by himself through the woods and this winter he stayed there and as he has before stated, no interference took place with fort by the Indians either to the fort or the settlement around. He remained guarding the fort and on constant duty until his time of service expired in March 1781. He received his discharge from Qwatkins at Boonsboro. He knew during his service in the fort many officers and persons that he will not mention a few of them. Col Callaway, Col Ben Logan were all the officers in commission that were in the fort. Sometime there were many private individuals who sometimes acted as officers but who were not commissioned as he understood. John Holder, Nicholas Anderson, John Smith, Michael Stoner, Flanders Calaway, Simon Kenton,Whitson George, John George and Squire Boone. Many others that he could not mention as a great many persons moved to Kentucky in the year 1780. Aman by the name of Hoy? he during this last years service after he got into the district of Kentucky, marched only in Kentucky. The circumstances of his service are as above detailed. He served with no Continental Regiments or companies during his service.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: BRAVE DEFENDERS OF FORT BOONESBOROUGH by William Chenault

 

As appears in the Courier Journal, August 28, 1898

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: Old Fort Boonesborough, one mile from the mouth of Otter Creek in the present county of Madison, was so named by Col. Richard Henderson in honor of Daniel Boone. From the time of its completion, in the latter part of July, 1776, to 1779, it was the strongest fortified fort of Virginia within the limits of the present State of Kentucky, and was the main refuge of safety for settlers both north and south of the Kentucky River.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: The town of Boonesborough, on the lands of which the fort was built, was for several years the capital of the colony of Transylvania, and within the limits of this town, in May, 1775, was assembled the first legislative council to make laws for the government of the new State to be founded across the wilderness on the western waters. The location of the fort is said to have been caused by the existence near there of three fine springs. One of these springs was close to Calloway's Ferry, which crossed the Kentucky river at the town of Boonesborough. This spring has now disappeared.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: The fort was in the hollow near the edge of the sycamore grove, about fifty steps southwest of the Sulphur Lick. It is said by a trustworthy historian of the State that Fort Boonesborough was commanded by the cliffs on the opposite side of the Kentucky river, and it is claimed that a rifle ball shot from the opposite hills would reach within the fort. It is believed by many that it was from the opposite hills, facing the forton the northern side of the Kentucky river, that the Canadians and Indians, under Dequiesne, and the chiefs, Blackfish and Moluntha, gathered their savage hosts at the great siege of Boonesborough on August 8, 1778, when the large negro was sent forty yards to the front to call for Capt. Boone to come out from the fort.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: Location of the Fort

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: The location of the fort was sixty feet from the Kentucky river, and about 300 yards from the beautiful elm tree so graphically described by Col. Richard Henderson in his journal. Col. Henderson represents the fort as being on the opposite side of the sulphur spring from the elm tree,and about eighty yards from the fresh-water spring in the edge of the sycamore grove in the present town of Boonesborough. As shown in the plan of the fort drafted by Henderson the fort was in the shape of a parallelogram 200 feet in length and 120 feet in width. At each end of the Parallelogram was a block house, two stories high. The bastion on the end of the fort nearest the Kentucky river commanded both the Sulphur Lick and the large freshwater spring to the west, whence the inhabitants of the fort obtained their water to drink. The wooden stockade around the fort was twelve feet high, with two heavy wooden gates on opposite sides.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: The fort had thirty cabins, including the block houses at each of its four corners. In the plan of the fort, made by Richard Henderson, these block houses are assigned to Col. Richard Henderson, Nathaniel Hart, John Luttrell and John Williams.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: The nearest forts to Boonesborough on the north side of the Kentucky river were that of Strode, in the present county of Clark, and those of McGee and Boone, in Fayette county, while the forts of Hart, Tanner, Hoy, Crews of Madison, were the nearest neighbors on the south. Later along, in 1782, a small block of cabins outside of the fort, about 100 yards from its wall was called Fort Tidbel. Two miles below Boonesborough, on the Kentucky river, was the fortification of John Holder, closely connected with that of Boonesborough as the mother fort.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: Boonesborough was the model fort south of the Kentucky river, after which many others were fashioned; but Boonesborough never equaled in size and strength the later forts of Bryant and Lexington, on the north side of the Kentucky river, or the large Fort Nelson, at the falls of the Ohio. It was never subjected to an attack with cannon, and probably could never have withstood such an assault.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: Erection of the Fort

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: The men who erected the fort are not known with certainty. Most of those who were at Boonesborough any length of time during the erection of the fort probably assisted in completing it, as the necessity for itscompletion was great and pressing.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: The building of the fort began about the 20th of April, 1775, and on the authority of a letter from Col. John Floyd, it is claimed by one of the latest Kentucky historians that the fort was completed in the latter part of July, 1776.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: Among those present at the town of Boonesborough during the construction of the fort were Daniel Boone, Squire Boone, Richard Calloway, William Cocke, Samuel Tate, John Hart, Thos. Johnston, William Hicks, Joel Walker, Jesse Oldham, James Peake, John Kennedy, William Bush, Michael Stoner, James Bridges, William Calk, Samuel Coburn, John Harrison, Samuel Harrison, Richard Harrison, Thomas Lutrell, Page Portwood, Jesse Benton, John Farrow, George Smith, Richard Witledge, John Harmon, James Estill, John Snoddy, John Boyle, Robert Boggs, Joseph Ellison, Cuthbert Coombs, Enos Coombs, William Lynn, Jonathan Jennings, Joshua Barton, John Floydand William Cooper.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: Quite a number of these men afterward settled in Madison county, Ky., and became the owners of land, by settlement and pre-emption rights, in some of the best portions of the county.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: The names of some of those who lived more of less within the fort from its completion in the latter part of July 1776, up to 1783, were Daniel Boone, Richard Calloway, Flanders Calloway, James Estill, Samuel Estill, David Gass, Thomas Warren, James Berry, David Lynch, Stephen Hancock, Higgason Grubbs, David Crews, Jesse Hodges, William Hayes, Thomas Brooks, John Holder, William Buchanan, Nathaniel Bullock, Ambrose Coffee, William Calk, Michael Stoner, Thomas South, Samuel South, John South, James French, John Wilkerson, Samuel Porter, Ralph Morgan, James Bridges, JamesYates, John Calloway, Caleb Calloway, Joseph Starnes, Valentine Starnes, Nicholas Anderson, John Wilkerson, John Taylor, Gerrett Townsend, Oswald Townsend, William Cradlebaugh, William Hancock, Thomas Dial and David Lynch.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: Assembled at the fort at different times and on various missions were John Floyd, John Todd, Simon Kenton, George Rogers Clark, Isaac Shelby, Harry Innes, John Knox, James Estill, John Boyle, James Harrod, John Logan and all the prominent leaders of Kentucky.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: Some came as rangers, to aid in the defense of the fort; some as scouts appointed by Gen. Clark for the protection of the district of Kentucky; some as surveyors in the employ of Henderson & Co.; some as legislators to make laws for the colony of Transylvania; some as hunters and woodsmen in search of game; some as citizens interested in the future welfare ofthe rising young state to learn the principles on which its land titles would be regulated; some as land locators in search of fortunes; some askinsmen to visit their relations; and some as lawyers to save their friends and clients from threatened litigation.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: A full list of those who thus came and went would include members of nearly every prominent family in the State at that period.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: Constant Military Duty

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: Before peace was made with England, in 1783, three of this little band --James Estill, Barney Stagner, and John South - were killed, and Stephen Hancock was a prisoner with the Indians, George M. Bedinger, after taking part in the expedition of Col. John Bowman and Benjamin Logan against the Wabash Indians, had again joined the army of Washington and was present at the siege of Yorktown. Others of the company lost their lives while standing sentry at the gates of the fort.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: Throughout the year 1779 the men of Boonesborough were on constant toursof military duty, lasting from two to ten months, or were acting as scouts and rangers on the hills of Muddy, Dreaming and Station Campcreeks. A number of them were killed or taken prisoners at Picture Lick, on Station Camp creek, or at the mouth of Muddy Creek, in Madison County, which was a famous crossing for the Indians.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: While Boonesborough scouts were ranging through Eastern Kentucky in1779-1780, the old hunters at Boonesborough, such as Michael Stoner, Thomas Brooks, Jesse Hodges, Aquilla White, Ambrose Coffee, William Cradlebaugh, William Bush, Oswald Townsend, Stephen Hancock, Samuel Estill, Nicholas Anderson, and John Kennedy, were hunting at the game licks in the southeastern part of the State for meat and provisions to sustain life at the fort.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: In search of the elk they would go down the Kentucky river in canoes; insearch of deer and buffalo, they would go to Joe's Lick and Blue Lickbeyond Twetty's Fort, in Madison county, and sometimes they would crosson the northern side of the Kentucky river and go to the forests on the headwaters of the Licking and Elkhorn.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: As the population increased, the new forts of Hart, at Whiteoak Springs, and John Kennedy, on Silver creek, were built in 1779, while those of Estill and Hoy were built in 1780, and those of Hancock, Irvine andTanner in 1781. All these forts were in Madison county. (One lineunreadable) to Boonesborough in times of trouble, and counseled with its leaders as to the best methods of defense and attack against the Indians and their British allies.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: In times of peril Boonesborough sent its relief parties to Blue lick, to the forts of Logan, Harrodsburg, Bryant Station, Lexington and other stations both north and south of the Kentucky river.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: At the time George Rogers Clark made his expedition against Kaskaskia, Cahokia and Vincennes, in the Northwest, the fort of Boonesborough was too much pressed by the demands of home defense to send a company to the country of the enemy, but a number of individual soldiers from Boonesborough, John Boyle, William Bush, Garrett Williams and others joined Clark before the campaign had closed.

 

FORT_BOONESBOROUGH: As the campaigns under Estill, Holder, Todd and Twigg closed in 1782, and the news of peace with England reached Kentucky in the latter part of1783, the people of the section of Kentucky, then in the present county of Madison, began to leave the little forts of Hoy, Tanner, Hancock and Irvine and moved upon their farms in the adjoining neighborhoods.

 

Nicholas Anderson came to KY from Virginia. Prince William County, VA, Minute Book 1752-1753, p 6. Nicholas Anderson was a signer of the "Corn Compact", entered into by the Association of the Settlers of Boonesboro in 1779. He is also listed in the George Rogers Clark Papers 4-842, 12-38

 

Nicholas Anderson was an early settler of Montgomery County and is mentioned in a Clark County Draper interview:

 

"Anderson's Station: ...was upon the head of now Hinkston, about 2 miles south west of Mt. Sterling. Settled about 1791 by Nicholas Anderson; John Harper, bro: to Peter Harper, and Ned Williams, were the other 2 of 3 men that had their farms there. One Somers lived there, awhile, but not I believe, at first. Hinkston was then called Little Mountain, to as low down as where Grassy Lick came in; where it was then called H."

Notes for William Wilkerson:

 

William, the 2nd son, received a limited education, and after his father's death, he was appointed executor of the estate and guardian for his brothers and sisters. The duties thus imposed upon him gave him a practical knowledge ofbusiness affairs, and the people of his county had so much confidence in hisability and integrity that they elected him a member of the county court while he was quite young. The court at that time was composed of 12 men, selected with reference to their ability and experience, and it was no small honor to be so chosen. Mr. Wilkerson enlisted in the war of 1812, and was chosen First Lieutenant of CAPTAIN GEORGE MCARTHUR's c ompany. They belonged to that portion of the army which operated in Canada, and Lieutenant W. assisted in capturing a fort in which several hundred of the enemy were garrisoned. After the close of the war he was elected Colonel of militia, and was subsequently chosen to represent his county in the legislature. In 1830 he came to MO. and settled in Callaway Coun ty In 1836 he was elected a member of the legislature, and afterward represented the county in the same body during a portion of two terms. He was also presiding justice of the county court for several years. He died in 1845; his wife died in 1839. Her maiden name was ELIZABETH CLARK, daughter of JAMES CLARK, who came from Ireland, married a MISS ARBUCKLE and settled in Greenbriar County, VA. Colonel Wilkerson was a high-toned, honorable gentleman; moral and upright, but not a member of any church. He was highly respected in his community, and his counsel and advice were sought by all, which he gave without ostentation or display, and always for what he considered best. He was modest and unassuming in his manners and possessed an excellent mind, which he diligently cultivated. He was temperate in his habits, and never used profane language. in his family circle he was kind and indulgent, but firm in requiring his children to do what was right. He was an honest politician and no competitor could ever say that he took an unfair advantage of him. The names of his children were Harrison, Archilles (a physician), William H., Narcissa, Martha C., Elizabeth and Emily.

His parents, Hiram and Elizabeth (Halley) Wilkerson, were both originally of Montgomery county, Kentucky, where they were reared and married. The father made a prospectingtrip to this county in 1827, and was so pleased with the country that he returned to Kentucky, with the determination to make this his future home.

 

Accordingly, arranging his affairs in Kentucky, in 1830 he came back to Callaway county, bought land and improved it, and the following year brought his family out. He first settled near Fulton, where Moses was born, where he lived until 1851, when he came to the neighborhood of the Whetstone creek, where he lived until his death. He died June 17, 1865, aged about 60 years. He was a brick mason by trade, and worked at it for many years, putting up a large number of houses and other buildings in the county, particularly in Fulton. His sons mainly ran the farm.

 

He was, during the years of his activity, regarded as the best brick builder in the county. As a man and citizen he was respected by all who knew him, and he had many warm personal friends. Of his family of children, there were originally seven: John H., now in Arkansas; Nancy D., widow of Milton Jones; Nimrod A.; Sadonia C., died the widow of George Hendricks, also deceased; Moses, Elizabeth, the wife of John M. Hendricks; Sarah J., died in maidenhood, aged about nineteen years. The three deaths last above mentioned were all within a few weeks of each other. History of Callaway County, Missouri

-------------------------

 

"From History of Scott County, Iowa 1882 Chicago: Interstate Publishing Co."

 

Laurel Summers was born in Montgomery Co., Ky., Oct. 2, 1812; was a son

 

of Enoch and Elsie Summers, nee Hadden, natives of Kentucky, who were married in 1811, in Montgomery County of that State. In 1823 they removed to Morgan Co., Ind., where Enoch Summers entered land and farmed until his death, which occurred in 1845. The family then removed to Iowa, where the mother died in Jackson County, in 1867, having been the mother of six children Laurel, Presley, Redman, Shelton, Dolly and Caleb. Mr. and Mrs. Enoch Summers in early life were members of the Baptist church, but upon the organization of the Christian church, joined that denomination, and affiliated with them until their death. He gave time and money to the building up of the church, and was one of its most zealous workers. The subject of this memoir remained on the farm in Morgan County until 1830, when he went to Indianapolis, where he learned the trade of brick mason. This he followed until 1837, when, being drawn thither by the then prevailing current, he came West, and located in the Territory of Wisconsin, in what is now Scott Co., IA. He here made a Government claim and embarked in farming. He also established a cattle ranch partnership with his brother, buying cattle from Indiana. The investment did not prove a lucrative one, and it was abandoned soon after. In 1838 he was elected to the first Territorial Legislature, and was re-elected the two succeeding years. In May, 1841, he married Miss Mary Parkhurst, who was born in Ontario Co., N. Y., Jan. 11, 1822, and was a daughter of Sterling and Ann Parkhurst, the former a native of Massachusetts, and the latter of New Hampshire, who were married in the State of New York. The union of Mr. and Mrs. Summers has been blessed with five children - Helen L., now Mrs. C. P. Whitford; Elsie A., widow of E. S. Curtis; Sarah, now Mrs. W. P. Headley, Lewis C., who died in infancy, and Augustus D. Mr. Summers followed his trade until 1844, when he was elected to the Legislative Council, and served two years. In 1850 he was elected to the State Legislature, and in 1853 was appointed United States Marshal of the district of Iowa under President Pierce; served through his administration and was reappointed under James Buchanan, and served eight years. Since 1861 he has followed contracting and various other occupations. He was elected to the mayoralty of Le Claire four terms, and served as deputy sheriff of Scott County for three years. In 1874 he was elected one of the trustees of the Iowa Agricultural College at Ames, and served in that capacity four years. Mr. Summers was educated in the Democratic school of politics, and still adheres to the principles of that party.

 

Old settlers of Scott Co letter to:

 

LeClaire, Feb. 20, 1858

 

HON. JAMES GRANT:-Dear Sir: I am fearful that I shall not be able to attend the festival of the old pioneers of Scott county on the 22d inst., in your city. I have a severe cold, and am quite unwell to-day-trust, however, I shall be better on Monday. If so, I shall certainly be down. After witnessing the struggles of the "Old Settlers" for nearly twenty-one years, I feel like rejoicing when they rejoice, feasting when they feast, and mourning when they mourn.

 

In the event that I am too indisposed to come down, and there should be no person from here to respond to the twelfth regular toast, please do so yourself. I know I am safe in saying that our people would feel safe with their interests confided to your hands.

 

I think a good many of our old citizens will be down, but very few of them are public speakers.

 

I send you a volunteer toast, to be read if I cannot come.

 

Truly yours,

 

LAUREL SUMMERS.

He served the long apprenticeship to a tailor in London, to his uncle, then common and required in that country, and a few years after attaining his majority succeeded to the business of his employer, in Avery Row, Bond street, and became quite prosperous. Jan. 21, 1828, he married Sarah Ann Sharp, at St. James, Westminster, a very estimable woman who still survives, making her home with her daughter, Mr. Edward Russell, Davenport. While energetic in Business, the young master tailor exercised his abilities in earnest labors in the Sunday-school and temperance causes particularly, and at length enjoyed an extended reputation as a public speaker in their behalf. The result was that about the year 1843 he surrendered his business and devoted his entire time to lecturing in aid of the "Teetotalers" societies and the Rechabite order. In that connection he labored mainly in Essex and adjacent counties, with frequent visitations in London. Meanwhile along cherished desire to acquire citizenship in the United States, because of his great admiration for American institutions, grew stronger month by month. Securing at last the agreement of his intimate and cherished personal friend, Mr. William Russell (also an earnest laborer in the temperance reform, a "radical" in politics and a life-long enologist of the American Republic), that he, too, would emigrate, Mr. Rutledge closed up his engagements in England, and, leaving with his family, arrived in New York Sept. 1, 1845. Establishing himself in Philadelphia, he soon became intimate with Rev. John Lansing Burroughs, pastor of the Broad Street Baptist Church, by whom he was invited to active participation in the Sunday-school and temperance work of that organization. As a result, he was led to examine the scriptural grounds of the Baptist faith, and to accept that faith as his own. His abilities and worth being speedily recognized, he was appointed a colporteur of the Baptist Publication Society, and accepted a commission to the West. Journeying with his family via the Pennsylvania and Ohio canal and the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, he reached Davenport on May 5, 1847, having been previously, in Philadelphia, regularly ordained as minister of the gospel in the Baptist denomination. In Davenport he was gladly welcomed by the Baptist Church, and after a short residence in the city, was invited to labor with the Baptist Church of Le Claire, Iowa, and Cordova, Ill. These organizations he faithfully served until, in 1855, he was invited to the pastorate of the First Baptist Church in Davenport, in which relation he continued rather more than a year, returning to his old home in Le Claire. Thenceforward, until his death, he continued to labor in the ministry wherever called to the duty he loved so well. Part of the time he was the regular pastor of the Le Claire Church. During other periods he preached at Cordova and Port Byron, Ill., and at Princeton, Iowa, and neighboring towns. Everywhere he was known as "The Elder," and enjoyed the highest esteem of the people. All classes knew him as a thoroughly good man, sincere of speech, warm at heart and pure in life. He died on Oct. 27, 1868, in his Le Claire home, of diabetics, at the age of 64 years, 2 months and 8 days, rejoicing in the realities of the faith and hope he had so long presented to others as the consolation of a dying hour. He was a man of simple habits, earnest purpose and marked trust in Divine Providence. Laboring at his old trade whenever work was offered to him, and accepting that as an aid to his chosen labor of preaching the gospel, his meager salary as a minister always sufficed not only to support his family, but to render his home the hospitable resort for many a friend and wayfarer. A favorite with the young, he married in his day a larger number of couples in  Le Claire, Princeton, Cordova, Port Byron and vicinity than any other minister ever resident thereabouts, while none were more sought for to attend funerals, or administer consolation in sickness and sorrow.

 

As an illustration of the kind of duty devolving upon pioneer ministers in the county a third of a century ago, it may be stated that when the Baptist of Le Claire erected their first house of worship in 1847, "Elder" Rutledge carried the hod for several successive days taking to the scaffold the brick and mortar with which Mr. Laurel Summers laid up the walls. That building, since torn down, stood on the north side of Wisconsin avenue, on the corner, one square west of Main street. The basement was long occupied for public-school purposes, town meetings, elections, etc., in common with the uses of the Church; the upper part not being finished until several years after the building was erected. Indeed, the public subscription made for the church erection was conditioned on the uses of the basement herein mentioned.

 

Long will the memory of those early days be recalled even by those who then were boys and girls among the residents of Le Claire. To all of these the genial smile, the kind word, the earnest life of elder William Rutledge, will have happy recollection to the end of their days
