  3. 3.0 3.1 Grant's Station
    accessed 9 Nov 2013.

    A particularly well known Bourbon County station was established by John Grant in 1779. John Grant came from North Carolina with William Ellis, a Virginian, and built a stockaded station on the waters of Houston Creek along the main buffalo road from Bryant's Station to the Blue Licks. The station was intended for 20-30 families then crowded into Bryant's Station (Drake 1942). It was attacked and burned in June of 1780 by 60 Indians, during which two men named Stucker and a woman named Mitchell were killed. This attack was by a group which splintered off from Byrd's large war party after Martin's and Ruddle's Stations were taken. The Indian attack led to its abandonment in 1780, but it was rebuilt by Grant in 1784 (Dunn 1945; Ardery 1939). The Grants sold the Bourbon County property in the late 1780s and 1790s.

    John Grant listed the following inhabitants in a letter to Col. John Todd dated April 24, 1780 (Drake 1942). They included John Tamplin, John Jackson, John Van Cleave and his son John, George Stucker and his son George, Samson Culpepper, Stufel Stucker, Philip Drake, Christopher Harris, William Van Cleave, Manoah Singleton, Thomas Gilbert, William Liley, William Loring, Robert Harras, James Rowland, Josiah Underwood, Frederick Hunter, William Morrason, James Gray, Henry Miller, Stephen Murphy, Michael Stucker, Edmond Lilley, Samson Hough, William Ellis and six others he would not "properly call effective". George Summitt, who later built Summitt's Station in Nicholas County, also lived at Grant's Station in 1780.

    In writing the story of George of 1733, previous genealogists did not have the benefit of reading the Draper MSS at the Library of the State Historical Society in Madison, Wisc., nor of reading the revised edition of "Kentucky in Retrospect" in 1967 in which some of these historical events were discussed. This is the reason that Essie's DAR papers state that it was her ancestor, this George of 1733, who served at BryanStation in 1780 and thus had Revolutionary service in Ky. It was presumed by both Jennie and Essie that George of 1733 was killed at about the time of the siege on Bryan Station in 1782, but now we know that could not be, since he was killed in May of 1780, not in a battle of the Revolution. Thus the only correct service fro the older George of 1733 is that for 1775 in Jacob Arndt's Co in Northampton Co., Pa.

    GEORGE STOCKER/STUCKER b. about 1733 in Berks County, Pennsylvania, son of Michael and Anna Margaret Stocker, the immigrants. He married Margaret - maiden name unknown - about 1758 or before. He d. 1782 at or near Bryant's Station, Kentucky - was killed by an Indian the same year as his brother Jacob was killed. This family is covered by Jennie E.Stewart's Book II.

    Margaret, his wife, received a grant of landnear Georgetown, consisting of 400 acres on Glen Creek, in Woodford County, Kentucky. She divided this land and sold it to her sons and daughters in 1793 and 1798. She married the second time sometime after 1783 John Miles. In 1789 she bought from John Miles (she had sons Michael, John, Jacob and Henry) a parcel of land from John Miles of Virginia near her own land, for she had married againsometime after 1785 Nathan Breeden, name also spelled Burden. Margaret was living in 1804 when she mortgaged a horse and bedding to her son Jacob for $60. She reserved the right to live on her own homestead when she sold her holdings to Henry in 1796, and Henry in turn sold this tract to Jacob with the provisions that Margaret was to live there to the endof her life.

    MILITARY RECORDS: "George Stucker was a Lieutenant in Northampton County Militia 1775, the first company with Captain Jacob Arndt, made up in Forks Township. He also is mentioned in Penn Archives as in defense ofthe border in Cumberland Mountains. Then he appears in Virginia (later Kentucky) Militia in defense of the border, 8th REPORT VIRGINIA STATE LIBRARY, Page 422, I.P.D. 36." . This I.P.D. 36 also includes Michael's (1759) military record in Virginia.
