Hiatt's/Thatcher/Morris of Greenup Co.

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.
In the fall of that year my father loaded up all his goods with 5 yoke of Cattle to one wagon and a span of Mules to another wagon and headed for the Platt Purchase.

Can anyone check the census for Greenup Co for me and see if this family did indeed live there and how long.
This article came from Holt Co. MO and is dated 1896 for a 50th Wedding Anniversary Party for William T. Hiatt and his wife Susannah Heaton Hiatt who were married in Iowa (Des Moines Co) 2 March 1847.
Anything that can be added will be great !!

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.
I do know one of their sons named Thatcher Hiatt was in Fleming County KY and married a Esther Hunt, Green, Markwell in 1820.

Another of Williams children Nancy married 1st. Landon Bonham in Fleming Co. ca. 1818 and 2nd. John Pemberton ?
