Text: . . . James inherited the home from his father which he afterwardssold, and removed with his family and son-in-law, George Strother toKentucky. They started in May, 1797, and voyaged on a flat boat fromRedstone Old fort on the Youghiogheny River and landed at Limestone,Kentucky after a tedious and perilous journey. Their first home was nearParis in Bourbon county, Kentucky, where they remained six years. Georgeand Mary Duncan Strother removed to Gallatin County, now Trimble County,and settled near Corn Creek in 1802. Rev. George Strother built a schoolhouse on his farm, and we find James Duncan teaching at 'Strother'sSchool house.' (from a letter from Mr. A.P. Strother to Mrs. DaleThompson).

OccupationReverend George Duncan Strother's occupation was Justice of Peace/ Methodist Preacher.1 
Note-ShackelfordHe George Strother lost his parents in youth, after which he resided with his grandparents, Captain John Strother and Mary Wade Strother, until at the age of 18 years he enlisted as a soldier to suppress the insurrection of Western Pennsylvania. On the 18 of Feb., 1796, he married Mary Duncan,and in May following moved to Bourbon county, Kentucky, and in 1802 removed to Trimble county, Kentucky, where he spent the remainder of his life. He was a Methodist minister.

While young he lost his father, and his mother died when he was 12 yearsold. A part of his youth he spent with grandfather, who died in 1795.When 18 years of age he volunteered as a soldier to suppress the insurrection in Western Pennsylvania. On the 18th of Feb., 1796, he m. Miss Mary, dau. of James and Seeny Duncan, and in May following, with his father-in-law and family, emigrated to Bourbon Co., Kentucky. In 1802 he moved to what is now Trimble Co. He was of the delegation to the Capital to procure the formation of a new county, and by request he gave a name to the county, selecting the name of Judge Trimble. He was much beloved, especially by his relations, among whom he visited a great deal and he was thoroughly familiar with them both in Va. and Kentucky. Before his death, seeing that oral tradition would not preserve the records of the family, he left a clear and vivid history of his branch of the Strother family. They spent the latter part of their lives about five miles from the present city of Madison, Indiana, where he was for many years a local preacher in the M. E. Church.

Friend of General Zachary Taylor.

LETTER WRITTEN BY HENRY STROTHER:

'I was greatly surprised to find this old Marshall home to be the identical old John Sibley place I visited over fifty years ago (abt1860), with my good old grandfather, Rev. George Strother, who was born in Culpeper County, VA, Feb. 14, 1776, and died in Trimble County, KY,July 30, 1864......This William Marshall, and Samuel Pryor, (the grandfather of my old friend and kinsman, Judge Wm. S. Pryor, of New Castle, Henry Co., KY., who will be 88 years old on the 1st. day of next month, as above stated) were among the 12 jurors who were appointed by the County Court of Henry Co, KY, to assess the damages to adjoining property owners, by reason of the mill race, dam, etc, of George Strother's mill site on Corn Creek, Henry County, KY. The jury reported on Aug. 24,1802, that there were no damages to other property owners, as the race and dam were on the lands belonging to said George Strother.'

This George Strother was the writer's (Henry Strother) grandfather.

Text: . . . James inherited the home from his father which he afterwards sold, and removed with his family and son-in-law, George Strother (mygreat-grandfather) to Kentucky. They started in May, 1797, and voyaged on a flat boat from Redstone Old fort on the Youghiogheny River and landed at Limestone, Kentucky after a tedious and perilous journey. Their first home was near Paris in Bourbon county, Kentucky, where they remained six years. George and Mary Duncan Strother (my great-grandparents ) removed to Gallatin County, now Trimble County, and settled near Corn Creek in 1802. Rev. George Strother built a school house on his farm, and we find James Duncan teaching at 'Strother's School house.' (from a letter from Mr. A.P. Strother to Mrs. Dale Thompson).
