Description

No one played a more important role in the settlement of Clark County than Capt. William Billy Bush.

He thus became one of the first permanent settlers in Kentucky. He thus became one of the first permanent settlers in Kentucky. He fought in the Indian Wars from the Battle of Point Pleasant (1774) to General Harmar's defeat (1790). Billy was also a key figure in establishing Providence Baptist Church, the first church in Clark County. Their place of worship-the Old Stone Church-is now the oldest church on Kentucky soil. Billy Bush laid claim to thousands of acres of land between Winchester and the Kentucky River, and Daniel Boone ran the surveys for him. This land became the foundation of the Bush Settlement. 392 pages, indexed
