the Kentucky Irish American SHKLBYVIUK June UThe Shut t Van Vocht presents her compliments and sends sincerest love to her youthful admirer from the Franklin capital She smiles with all the bewitchery of sixteen as she reads the Frankfort letters A man who runs could easily see the effects produced on the juvenile scribe as he vainly attempts to notice our magnificent productions and1 strains poorattempt at answering essaying a sort of jejune imitation Not yet my lear After a short lesson you may become a brilliant reporter Let us therefore make use of the privilege which our age accords us and placing you lovingly upon our mater nal knee whisper a few kind words of encouraging warning which we feelwill fall on rich and fertile ground as they touch your young and innocent heart and will in future bring forth fruit sweet and agreeable to the readers of the Ken tuck Irish American Mark the beauty of all our letters How beautifully they flow They glance and glow and glide in rhyme and rhythm brimful of wit and humor overflowing with a buoyancy not expected of our years but which bespeaks a heart in which there exists not a hurt ful thought but charity for all and malice toward none Hence we never must be personal except in the truest sense of kindly feeling and a good natured spirit of mischief and fun which can cause not even a momentary feeling of unkindness in the hearts of our read o ers Our personal references must be calcu lated to produce a pleasant smile on tie faces of persons spoken of We might indeed continue our remarks about the State stables of Frankfort or probably you could tell us something of interest regarding your public institutions Since we have never left the sacred precincts of Shelby it would please us and others who have not the experience derived from the extensive travels of D J M to know more of the institutions that are not stablestlie pen or the insti tution for the feebleminded Tell us something interesting in flowery language which might make us believe that your town is a place overflowing with milk and honey and human kindness in stead of a place where the mossbacks cant keep sober because of the medicine compounded by the mixologists of Frank fortOur late representative from the invincible Shelby was head and shoul ders above the others for sobriety and ItI was remarked that intellectually he wasI easily their superior His goodsense prompted him to shun the potations dis pensed as he avoided the bribes which were offered Fop this he returned to his constituents to reeeive their thanks their respects and plaudits Hence he needs no brain tonic made up in Frankfort and for brawn he can easily hold the floor If the Frankfort correspondent will promise not to bring us to the stables we will gladly accept his invitation to visit his town if he further agrees toIImeet us by moonlight alone Wonderful is the power of the press but doubly marvelous is the influence of the Kentucky Irish American on the lives and morals of those whose r names appear in its pages It may inter est our friends in Louisville as in other places to know of the effects produced by our highly prized paper Capt Pent berton is

Orig inal Founders of the 3ron astcry BISHOP MCLOSKEY WAS MISSED It was fitting that the Abbot of Gethse mani postponed until June the celebra lion of the golden jubilee which should have taken place in December 1898 says Edward Fitzpalrick in the Times At this time of the year the surroundings of the abbey are most beautiful made so by nature The approach to the monastery ik through au avenue of stately elms the fromlFrance5 I 410 feet in llength and eightysix feet in I width and the eightysix trees planted in four j those who walkfI able birds fill the trees and seem to make I I welcome with their songs those who pass the gate with the Inscription over it I Peace to all who enter The good monk who keeps the gate is stationed there day and night and according to the rules is directed to nay to each one I J who knocks for admission Deoi GraliasII to give to each one this greeting ItII seemed that the whole population of Nelson county and a goodly portion of Louisville turned out and there was no knccking at the door everybody was welcome Even ladies were prominent in the festivities but were not allowed to go far beyond the lodge gate where there is a notice in a conspicuous place Women are forbidden under pain of excommunication to enter these gates However they helped to entertain the visitors in the guesthouse and the gar lens where there are orange trees palms plants andshrubs in profusion From an ecclesiastical point of view the celebration at Gcthscmani was the most elaborate ever held in Kentucky by Catholics The services proper were the same that are held in Catholic churches in Louisville on every Sunday and holy day throughout the year consisting of high mass and vespers except in this Instance the mass and vespers were Ponti fical There was an absence of organ music the Gregorian choir being used exclusively This chant introduced by Pope Gregory the Great in the year 500 has been cherished and cultivated by time Trappisls ever since their organization in 1140 Its extreme simplicity and dis similarity to secular music or even to that employed in the ordinary services of the church makes It well worth going a long way to hear when sung by trained voices such as are always to be found among the Trappist monks His excellency the Most Rev S MarI tinelli D D apostolic delegate to time United States was time celebrant at theI mass assisted by Monsignors Gambon Bouchet and Zabler of this city The church a magnificent Gothic structure I0x00 feet was inadequate to hold time vast throng and the doors had to be closed to many who were not iIvitdjj The church has fourteen altars BishopsI abbots monsignors each wearing the peculiar vestments of their order filled the sanctuary The visiting Bishops abIbots and priests while within the altar railing worshiped like laymen The whiterobed Abbot of Gethsemani j Right Rev Edmund M Obrecht was the observed of all The occasion seethed j to give him great pleasure The sermon at the mass was delivered by the Very Rev J J Dougherty rector of the MisII sion of the Immaculate Virgin New tt York City Dr Dougherty is a man of distinguishedaddress and is eloquent to a high degree His life has been de voted to reclaiming homeless boys in New York City and he has seen niuch of t the world His sermon was largely a review of the work of the Trappists and other similar bodies in time church He took for his text the exhortation If you wish to be perfect go sell vthat thou hast give to the poor avid follow me1 tt We have an example of this in the aged brother selected to carry the rose It crownd cross in this great jubilee Fifty ij years ago lie walked through the streets of France a young Trappist who in the Ij enthusiasm of his heart had given himII self to God Today he carries that selfsame j cross which the noble Abbott Eu Iropius bore in honor from time monastery of France to our beloved country Father Dougherty said that the pres j ence of the highest authority of the t manydistinguishedit was not a jubilee of the thatII alone and the presence of the vast throng i was evidence of the popularity andes teens the monks of Gethsemani had won ill the past fifty years The sermon was a historical survey of monasticism and was t eloquently delivered If was a matter of j I ii regret that It tCfluld not have been heard i ti t tby a larger number tb n the church could accommodate H closedwith an affecting reference to rowth of Geth semaniBehold theftft what a change Where the wildwoods abounded n w stands this noble monastery where tlme foot of civil ized man had hardly trod now towers toward high heaven the majestic spire of this most graceful cluijch where the wild rose and thorn strive for mastery now under the skillful hand of the silent monk thrive

Trapgists After the sermons close a solemn pro cession was given for tite benefit of those outside the monastery walls Headed b the college band the apostolic delegate CHARLES J CRONAN The popular druggist candidate for the Board of Aldermen accompanied by all tbbclergy and the monks proceeded from the church around the wall and out time avenue of elms and the crowds knelt to receive his blessing A most tteresting mem ber of the processidnlwas Father Ai- mtonnet the so e survmvor o iband or fortyfive pilgrims from France who founded Gethsemani He has been a monk since the age of nineteen and carried the identical wooden cross borne by the Abbot Eutropius when the Trappists came to Kentucky After the mass and sermon there was a banquet for the invited guests Abbot Obrecht was toastmaster paying a trib ute to Leo XIII which was responded to by Archbishop Martinelli Our Country was eloquently re sponded to by Dr Dougherty of New YorkKentucky and Our Diocese by Monsignor Gambon who deplored the absence of the Bishop of Louisville and ireferred to the occasion as one of the brighest pages in Catholic history in Kentucky The Abbot when called upon responded to Gethsemani and made sonic feeling remarks There was a procession around the church and the abbey which was a part of the morning service The Te Demn was sung during the procession very solemnly by the monks In the afternoon there was Pontifical Vespers the celebrant being the Right jRev E F Prendergast D D Auxiliary jBishop of Philadelphia assisted by tim jRev Father Fitzgerald of Shelbyville and Fathers York and Schuhmann of this city which closed the jubilee Ample provision had been made for all who came from Louisville and the surrounding country and there were nearly j1000 besides those who lied invitations The Abbot hadi prepared for these by having slaughtered six fat cattle twelve lambs seven calves and other animals and no one went away hungry Besides the meats there was a plentiful supply of bread baked in the monastery ovens and seventyfive gallons of ice cream All of this was given gratuitously The train from Louisville brought sev eral hundred including Mayor Weaver City Assessor Murphy Ed T Tierney of the Board of Safety and many others there being a large representation of non Catholics who had been specially in vited Only a few ladies found admission to the church but all were allowed to enter and inspect the grounds and buildings after the principal ceremony of the day and they enjoyed it greatly The present Abbot Right Rev M Ed ugeIswar with Germany in

strongest and most popular society in the West End was organized September 10 1893 and front a membership of thirty or forty has grown until it now numbers over 300 yDuring the past year it was found nec essary to provide larger quarters when the Council was incorporated and pur chased a building at Twentysixth and Main streets which has been transformed into a club house This has been most elegantly furnished and during the winter months weekly euchres took place which were a source of much enjoyment and were largely attended There are very few people in the West Endwho have not had the pleasure of being entertained atone or more of their social functions Other features to attract young men to spend their leisure time at the club house are the billiard and pool tables the gymnasium with gloves I punching bags Indian clubs etc and a well stocked library where books of a standard character magazines and papers can always be found Mackin Council also protects its mem bers when sick or disabled paying a weekly benefit of f5 and J100 for the burial of deceased members There are other ways of assisting those who belong to the order and many young men have been benefited thereby

place at Fern Grove next Tuesday June 13 These outings have always been attended by large crowds in the past and there is no doubt but that the capacity of the excur sion steamers Columbia and

their patrons Firstclass meals will be served on the grounds for twentyfive cents for adults and fifteen cents for children thereby obviating the expense and bother of carrying baskets The boats will brave at 830 in the morning and one at 130 for the accom modation of those who can devote only the afternoon to pleasure Arrangements have also been made that the first boat may leave Fern Grove at G oclock so that those accompanied by children may arrive home at an early hour A firstclass orchestra and band will timeegrove and an efficient corps of managers will provide various forms of amusement and see that everything is conducted in firstclass order All the members of the council will be on hand and will see to it that nothing is overlooked If any of our readers have never attended these

WHALLEN SILENCES THE TIMES politicalcirclesspector Prank Dugan for which act the Board of Public Works is being roundly censured That Frank Dugan was an honest and efficient city official is con ceded by all but the best evidence is the records of the office Under former In gasolinelightingunder the former figure but when Mr Dugan took charge the sum was reduced to 10000 followed by the addition of the whole of South Louisville and under his administration the city has had a better service than ever before there being not a month in which he did not save the city a portion of the 10000 appropriated When to this is added the statement that there has never been a complaint made since he took charge the reason for the indignation manifested is more apparent Chairman Grainger was called upon at the City Hall by the representative of the Kentucky Irish American and all the information that he would vouchsafe was that Mr Dugan had been removed He declined to answer any questions and appeared not to know anything about what the board of which he is a member was doing The Board of Safety the next day fol lowed the example set by the Board of Public Works and the following seven firemen among the very best in the department were summarily dismissed for he alleged good of the service stokerPTiilaciclffrniSiii b f James Donahue stoker John McCrory stoker John Fitzgerald pipeman

This action of the board is inex plicahle unless for the purpose of making places for some who will neglect their duties to do the political bidding of its membersThese men had reason to expect better treatment at the hands of the present city administration and the Kentucky Irish American will always oppose the abuse of city employes no matter what faction they belong to or bwhat board controlled The Times endeavored to create another sensation Wednesday by publishing mis leading statements and again villifying Col John Whallen to which he makes the following dignified reply To the Pnblis The Evening Times seeks to make the impression that the men who are striving to elect a Council which will be beyond the Mayors influence intend when that is accomplished to remove the Mayor and name me to fill the unexpired term The statement and all the implications based on it are false altogether There is no public office of any kind or character which I would accept whether it conies from the people from the Mayor or from the General Council- I made this fact clear two years ago at the time we were striving to get the a Democratic party together in support of a reform Mayor My interests are not with the con tractors and the politicians but with the long suffering taxpayers of Louisville If any has a doubt on this point let them go to the Assessors office and see that my chief interest in Louisville is in good government and low taxes Good government and low taxes I ex pected from this administration and openly and repeatedly Mr Weaver prom ised these things before he was elected In the public disappointment I fully shareAt this time it seems to me a matter of 1 first importance to have a General Council i that can not in any manner be made subservient to the Mayor either by pat ronage or promises Whether or not such a Council will find grounds for impeachment of the Mayor I can not say The Times has sources of information closed to me and its intimation that impeachment would come must be due to its knowledge of the condition of city offices it is not due to any knowledge of my motives or pur poses I wish the public to understand once for all that there is no office thpt couldgcome to me in any way that I would accept The attempt of the Tittles to defend the Mayor by attacking me seem thoughtYethe JUayor and to all others who have had anything to do

Qreen Street LOUISVILLE KY SATURDAY JUNE 10 1899 POOR POLICY The Kentucky Irish American has made it a rule to avoid partisan ship and narrowmindedness reserving to itself the right to criticise and protest against any and all unjust discrimination or illtreatment of the individual or people in whose interest it is being published and from whom it receives its main sup port Up to the present issue iit has had only kind words for Mayor Weaver and his Boards of Public Works and Public Safety During the past week a large number amen have been deprived of the positions they held under the pres ent city administration and the fact that all but one are Irish Americans has created widespread commentPresident Grainger was inter viewed by our representative in re gard to the matter but would give no answer other than that the party was removed We believe the action of the two boards was unjust and uncalledfor and will be resent ed by the people Many contend that the removals were made because the powers at the City Hall could not dictate for whom the unfortunates should vote in the coming primary and there seems to be good ground for the contention But why should this be so The Mayor and the members of his boards claim to be Dem ocrats and were supported as such by the men referred to who are also Democrats The men removed are supposed to enjoy the same rights in selecting candidates for city and State offices that Mayor Weaver Charles Grainger or Will Lyons possess and any attempt to coerce those under them into voting for this or that candidate is as undemocratic as it is unjust Rumors intimating this action upon the part of the city adminis tration reached this paper some months ago but were not credited Now that they have been verified we would call the attention of the public to the fact that the men re moved have records surpassed by none in the service of the city but are not protected by law as police men are and therefore can not compel the boards to give them an r open trial and show cause for their action They may think this good politics but the masses of the people at least of the Democratic party are sure to condemn such a policy Already local home government has aroused the Irish people to take more interest in public affairs f since they realize the importance of citizenship under the new regime A review of the results of the re cent election shows that in most of the districts and counties where the Nationalists lost it was due to the failure of the people to registers or if they did it was irregular and all f such could not vote This is being remedied the districts of Cabra and Drumcondra in County Dublin making the start and it is intended before the next election to have a full registration throughout Ireland and at the same time impress upon r r all the people the importance of Y voting and seeing to it that their neighbors vote Late dispatches say President McKinley has ordered the enlistment of every available man as t5oao men will be required for garrison duty in the Philippines in addition to the army now in the fieldaOur readers should remember the candidates announced in

for Irish unity so earnestly desired by every true Irishman Sir Charles Gavan Duffy says If there be in Ireland three Irishmen in whose integrity and capacity the disputants have confidence whose decision they would be willing to accept such a committee might confer with them bring them to confer with each other and difficulties which look insurmountable would speedily dis appear Have we three such men The letter and especially the paragraph quoted attracted general attention and comment The propo sition is a simple one and impresses all as fair and practicable a short quiet and effective way to settle all disputes party strife personal wrangles sectional and sectarian differences and by arbitration as iit w re submit the case abide the decision and come together for the one great cause embodying all others Irish national autonomy and the right of selfgovernment That Ireland has three many times threesuch men can not be doubted but who are they How are they to be brought to the notice of the people How are they to be selected The Irish Daily Independent has adopted a means of at least feeling the popular pulse on the question and though it is not authoritative or in any way binding upon any one will likely tend to bring to the front Irelands promi neat men who have the confidence of the people and as a beginning in the right direction is important while it is possible to lead to practi cal results in Irelands future The Independent publishes the paragraph we quote together with a coupon with blank lines for three names offers prizes aggregating Gsoto the successful guessers calls on Irish men and Irish women of all parties sections or creeds throughout Ireland and all the world to fill out a blank with the names of three Irishmen they pre fer to reunite the

Begun to Arrive in Kentucky About ns Soon as Boone Simon Kenton Was of Celtic Descent as Were Many of the Pioneers First Mention of a Kentucky Settlement Includes Irlrh INnlllcs AN ABLE AND INTERESTING PAPER The American Irish Historical Society has been doing good work since it was organized a few years ago in calling attention to early Irish settlements in the United States which ordinary historians forget or give tae credk to the Scotch Irish The Vice President of the society for Kentucky has contributed an inter esting paper which will appear in the forthcoming volume of the American Irish historical series The Kentucky Irish American has received an advance copy of the paper and presents it in this issue It will prove interesting to most of our readers Kentucky was admitted to the Union February 4 1791 but long before that time Irishmen had invaded the Dark and Bloody Ground Indeed whets Daniel Boone took time to write a little history for future generations by carving on a tree with his jackknife Here D Boone Cilled a Bar it is not improbable that an Irishman was in speaking distance Simon Kenton the companion of Boone who came to Kentucky from Vir ginia in 1771 was of Irish parentage His father was born in the County Done gal Kentons life was even more ro mantic than Boones While yet a minor he fled from his State because he believed he had killed a rival for the hand ofa fair Virginia damsel and coming to the wilds of Kentucky assumed the name of Simon Butler To recount his many deeds of bravery and privation would fill volumes Indeed he was the greatest Indian fighter the country ever produced In 1782 rearing from Virginia that William Veach the man he had struck down with a blow of his fist was not dead he resumed Isis name of Simon Kenton and in 1703 served as Major under Gen Anthony Wayne He founded Kentons Station nrd Maysville and planted the first corn raised in the State north of the jKentucky river Thomas Kennedy and Michael Stoner built a cabin and made some improvements on Stoners fork of Licking river in Bourbon county in 1774Kentucky was only a colony or county of Virginia up to 1791 and the latter State exercised full control over the lands until George Rogers Clark dis puted this right The records show that with the surveying parties sent out by Virginia to this State were many men bearing Irish names not ScotchIrish but plain Irish Col George Croghan an Irishman writing in his journal June 1 1705 says We arrived within a mile of the falls of the Ohio Louisville where we encamped after coming fifty miles this day This was even before Boones time Col Croghan was a connection by marriage of Gen George Rogers Clark who reduced the British posts in Indiana and Illinois and acquired all of ine Northwest territory for the United States If Gen Clark was not an Irishman himself his records show that many of his soldiers were Irish and his sister married one of that race William Crog hunt The first survey made of Louisville was in 1773 by Capt Thomas Bullilt and his associates were John Fitzpatrick James George and Robert McAfee all Irishmen Dr John Connelly owned 2000 acres of Louisville in 1773 Col John Campbell a native of Ireland was member of the Constitutional Conven tion held in Danville in 1707 He was Speaker of the Kentucky House a member of Congress and a large land owner in what is now called Louisville William H English spent 30000and five years of his life writing a history of the conquest of the Northwest Territory by George Rogers Clark and his asso ciates While Mr English may perhaps be forgotten by future generations as the running mate of Gen Winfield Scott Hancock on the Democratic Presidential ticket of 1880 his name will ever be rev membered by reason of the publication of this history He collected the names of nearly all of the soldiers who were with Clark in his fights With the British and Indians beginning in 1780 and devotes 700 or more pages to the deeds of Clark and his men They deserve it all forbad it not been for Clarks soldiers the territory north of the Ohio to west of the Mississippi would still be British It would take d good deal of space to give the Irish name in the rolls of Clatks soldiersWith Gen Clarkin 1778 came to Louisville John Haggin and John Montgomery both Irishmen and Captains in his com mand They landed at Corn Island in the Ohio river at the head of the falls right opposite what is now Louisville In 1782 there lived vin Louisville with their families John McManus Hugh Cochran John Doyle John Caghey John Cunningham Michael Humble John Handley Andrew Hines Thomas Mc Carty Thomas Purcell James Sullivan James Brown and John McCarland and of these came with Clark That was a pretty good Irish settlement for those days when men who went put toi plow were obliged to take their rifles along to defend themselves shgainst hos ile Indians jfo one will venture to say that Wtatthew t lyon born in tire lbounty Wieklpv In 4 r t r il t 1 1 1740 was a 9 ot lrishulau A short sketch of him will not be out of place lie brought the first printing press and type to Kentucky over the mountains and the Farmers1 Library the first paper published in this city was from his press nnd type 18017 Matthew Lyons father was executed in Ireland for alleged treason in 1705 The boy aged thirteen years bound himself to the Captain of the vessel which brought him over to work for J12 a month after his arrival to pay for his passage A Con necticut farmer gave the Captain two bulls for Matthew Lyons services and he worked out his time faithfully Ever afterward his great oath was by the bulls that bought me Lyon county Ky is named for him and his remains lie buried at Eddyville which he found ed Matthew Lyon thought once sold for two bulls took no mean part in the history of his country lIe belongedl to the Green Mountain Boys in Vermont iJ s was a Colonel in the Revolutionary war and afterward a member of Congress from the Granite State in 1797 In 179S he was prosecuted wider the alien and sedition laws and fined 1000 and con I fined to jail for four months While inI jail he was elected to Congress and by his vote broke the deadlock which elect ed Jefferson President Coming to Ken tucky he was a pioneer in thin wilder ness where Lyon county is now situate and his neighbors sent him to the Legislature at Frankfort He afterward served in Congress from this State for eight years 180311 He was appointed to an Indian agency in Arkansas and was elected to Congress from that State so Matthew Lyon a plain Irishman claim SQUIRE JOHN McCANN He prove a successor ing no Scotch prefix has the record of being the only man ever elected the American Congress from three States son Chittenden Lyouiwasn Congress man from Kentucky in 1827 his descendents are numerous in this State Many of the old families yet in Louis ville are of Irish extraction In 1784 Patrick Joyes a native of Ireland settled at the falls He was a man of education speaking several languages fluently The family has left its impress on the State ever since One of descendents Morton V Joyes is the present attorney for Jefferson county When Gen George Rogers Clark was old feeble after having spent a good part of his life fighting the British and the Indians he retired to a cabin on the north bank of the Ohio One day he fell and broke his leg1 and an Irish doctor Ferguson who was the only snr geon in Louisville at the time amputated it while Thomas Connelly a fifer who served with him in the wars played mar tial music marching around the cabin to keep up his courage while the operation was going on William H English in writing the Conquest of the Nortliw t Territory spent a great deal of time and money during twenty years or more of his life Being a millionaire lie could afford to travel spare the time looking up records and buying them where needful In his history he does not enter into the part taken by the Irish though he told me once that had it not been for the men of this race Clark would never have acv complished what he did in conquering the Indians in Kentucky qnd the Indian and British north of the Ohio Dr Thomas Dunn English writing of a trip he made through the mountains of Kentucky several years ago says that he was riding along one day in a wagon when one of the natives who was piloting him saw a rabbit run across the highway Stop a minute Dock cried the Kentuckian until I heave a dornick at that rabbit Dr English coming to inquire found that the mountains had been settled long ago by Irish and the word dornick for stone was only one of many Celtic words which survived The mountaineers were of Irish extrac tion but they did not know it them selves Even before Clark come to Louisville Simon Kenton records that in 1775 he lo cated in the upper and lower Blue Licks where game was plentiful and he con sidered them as paradises One day to his great surprise there came out of the woods toward his cabin two men who their names were Fitzpatrick and Hendricks They had been living in the vicinity for some time Fitzpatrick said he wanted to return to Virginia and Kenton gave him a skiff bill hint goodbye at what is nQwr called Maysville on the Ohio While Kenton was on this mission Indians efytefwV lilt camp and3- n0 Mr t t kt u F L LtJt I when he returned Hetidricks was Fitzpatrick and Hetidricks were Irish men Michael Stoner accompanieI- hoone to Kentucky in 1774 and when hu t met Kenton told him that there were nunf er of men in the interior of the territory away from the Ohio who were not known to the Virginia settlers Several who afterward came out bore Irishnames In 1775 Hugh Shannon Patrick Jor dan John Lee and others settled at what is now known as Lexington It is re corded that Patrick Jordan found a large spring down the fork in which they camped Joseph Lindsey paid Jordan two guineas to allow him to locate near the spring and the first clearing was made there This is now the garden spot of the Bluegrass region and in Sep tember 1775 the first roasting cars were gathered from this lialf acre clearing John Haggin located there soon after ward having come down the Ohio and up the Licking river to thin place of set tlement There were probably other Irish people eating roasting cars in the Bluegrass region one year before the declaration of independence but their names have not been preserved Certain it is that the people living in this clearing us soon as they heart of the battle of Lexington named the settlenrcnt in honor of the first victory in the revolu tionThe Logan family has always been prominent in Kentucky In 1775 Benja min Logan settled near where the town of Stanford is located Both his father and mother were born in Ireland and settled in Virginia Young Logan came to Kentucky when twentyone met will worthy to the late Judge Thompson to His and the and and said and I Boone and Simon Kenton and planted the first corn in what is now called Lin coln county Logan was one of the roost intrepid of the early pioneers and led many charges against the Indians being a Colonel in the early militia of the Commonwealth Daniel Bootie about 1775 found in Powells Valley Richard Hogan Hugh McGarry and Thomas Denton and their families These located afterward at Harrodstown Mrs McGarry and Mrs Hogan were the first white women to go up Salt river which historic stream is now so frequently mentioned in connection with defeated candidates after Presidential and other elections The Hogans and the McGarrys have frequently gone up Salt river since figuratively speaking but the Indians were not wail ing for them on the banks with tomahawks as in 1775 People of Irish birth or extraction were BishopSpaldingthat Mrs William Coome an excellent Catholic lady taught school in Harrods burg in 1775 This was long before a church or court was opened in Kentucky Smith the historian who was not a Catholic says that in the year 1775 Dr Hart and William Coomes settled Dren noun Springs in Henry county but after ward moved to Harrods Station Dr Hart practiced medicine and the wife of William Coomes opened school for chil drenThus phsiclan tucky were both Catholics Whether they were Irish or not they got the credit of being of that race as did all of the Presbyterian Irish who settled fh the State previous to 1780 of being of Scotch descentKentuckians are proverbial for their independence of character and disregard of sham and false pretense and it has always been a mystery to nic why so many of them coming from ancestors like Matthew Lyon Den Logan Simon Ken ton and Patrick Joyes claim to be Scotch Irish Certainly in 1701 when the State was admitted to the Union few if any Scotchmens names appear in the old annals while hunudreds of Irish nannies figure in the early history of the Com monwealth Time only Scotchman that has figured in Kentucky history that I have heard of is James B Beck Iud he pioneerJoseph at Boonesboro in 1770 and the children of Daniel Boone were his pupils Little is known of his early history but it is more than probable that Ills name was Donivan and it was corrupted into Doni phan and tlucit lie was Irish A man with the leisure and means could strike a rich field if he looked into the history of the early settlement of Keutuck would find that probably aeveiml fvcper cent of the settlers who came Crom Virginia Maryland and Penn sylvania previous to 1780 were of Irish birth or extraction It has orllfbeentouched on here Hundreds of
