On November 1, 1793 they settled in Limestone Creek (now Maysville) in Mason county. The first year they worked to prepare the land for the meeting of their families.
      In early fall of 1794, John and William returned to Virginia to get the families. Both families then began the long trip to Kentucky in ox drawn wagons. John, Lucy and their nine children arrived in Limestone Creek with some wagon loads of household goods. Traveling together, William and his 7 children arrived there also.
      John passed away in 1796 at the age of 42 in Mason County, Kentu cky. He left his wife Lucy and the five children under eleven years of age. The family was well provided for in John's will . William's wife died in 1792, and William died in in 1801 at age 57.
