Simpsons of Kentucky: Nelson County

Nelson Co., Kentucky (formed 1784 from Jefferson County)

1764 “During this year, and while in the employ of John Simpson (a trapper who had come there in quest of furs) they determined on removing further west. Simpson was induced to this by the prospect of enjoying the woods free from the intrusion of other hunters. A quarrel arose between Simpson and one of the Pringles and they parted company. Simpson crossed over the valley river, near the mouth of Pleasant creek and passing another water course, gave it the name of “Simpson’s Creek”. Thence he went westwardly and fell over a stream which he called Elk: at the mouth of this he erected a camp, and continued to reside for more than twelve months. During this time he neither saw the Pringles nor any other human being and at the expiration of it went to the South Branch where he disposed of his furs and skins and then returned to and continued at his encampment at the mouth of Elk, until permanent settlements were made in its vicinity.” (Chronicles of Border Warfare or a History of the Settlements by the Whites of Northwestern Virginia and of the Indian Wars and Massacres in that section of the State by Alexander Scott Withers, pp. 118-119).
