Boyle's Company that was dispatched to forts along Dick's River in Lincoln Co., KY. Col. Young had also been at Craig's Station. In the Fall of 1783, everyone from Craig's Station left there and went to the Gilbert's Creek Station, including the William Young family. Almost everyone stayed at Gilbert's Creek. William got land grants in Lincoln Co., KY in 1783 that required him and verified that he had been in Kentucky from Jan. 1778 to Oct. 1779.
