George Settle

DESCENDANTS: Sharon Clark has about 797 descendants for George Settle and his wife Mary Morgan Settle. The following notes that were provided to T.Mason in Nov 2000 are hers:

In 1742 he moved with his father and family from King George Co., VA to Fauquier Co., VA. After the death of his father, George came into possession of the old home place of his father (Isaac). This home place was on the east side of Rappahannock River and also on Barrow's Run. George lived at this location until 1806 at which time he moved from Fauquier Co., VA to Buck Creek, then Warren Co., KY, but due to a change in the county line between Warren and Barren Counties, KY, Buck Creek is now in Barren Co., KY. At the head of Buck Creek he built a home, opened up a farm, and in 1810, built a mill. This was a water powered grist mill with an overshot water wheel. The mill was at the big spring that heads Buck Creek.

George Settle was not the first of his family to come to this section of Kentucky. His son William was the first to come. He (William) came in 1797 and settled on Skaggs Creek and founded the town Old Rocky Hill. In 1802 his son Simon (son of George) came to Barren County, KY and settled on land adjoining his brother William. In 1806 George Settle in company with his youngest son Charles, his slaves, his baggage and equipment and also in company with his daughter Hannah Willis and her husband William Willis and their family; in company with his daughter Molly (Mary) Smith and her husband Elijah P. Smith and their family. The William Willis family settled near Buck Creek. The Elijah P. Smith family settled on land that adjoined the land of her brother William Settle at Old Rocky Hill.

George Settle married in Fauquier Co., VA ca 1761, Mary Morgan, daughter of William Morgan. She died in Fauquier Co., VA before 1806.
