From an article I came by recently I learned that my GGGGrandparents William Hiatt and Elizabeth "Betsy" Thatcher Hiatt were married in PA, had their children and started for OH coming over the Blue Ridge to OH in 1808. they stopped in OH and William built a Log Cabin and stayed 2 years...sold out and moved west again....stayed for awhile and kept moving West until he reached Cincinnati. From there he went over into KY and fooled around with Daniel Boone for awhile.
One of his sons, Stephen married 6 Dec. 1817 a Miss Lucy Morris in Campbell County. She was the daughter of Thos. Morris an "old Settler" of Boone County.
Soon afterwards Grandfather and father moved to Greenup County 150 miles from Cincinnati and setled within 7 miles from Catlinsburg (sic) and 7 miles of Irvington (sic). They lived there until 1841.
Can anyone check the census for Greenup Co for me and see if this family did indeed live there and how long.
William Hiatt was b. ca. 1777 and "Betsy" Thatcher Hiatt b. ca. 1781. It is unknown if William and Betsy moved with them. They are never mentioned again.
Another of Williams children Nancy married 1st. Landon Bonham in Fleming Co. ca. 1818 and 2nd. John Pemberton ?
