"Soon after, I returned home to my family, with a determination to bring them as soon as possible to live in Kentucky, which I esteemed a second paradise, at the risk of my life and fortune.

Old Stone House Newtown Pike Scott County

Blue Grass Trust stone house (late 1700s) on Newtown Pike(Ky 922) between Lexington & Georgetown near the site Johnson's Mill on Elkhorn Creek.

"The Elkhorn"

In the Bluegrass
Of Central Kentucky
In silence and solitude
An ancient wanderer
Timeless and tireless
Moves through our lives
He is a wanderer
A traveler among green hills
Ancient among the ancient
Timeless and tireless
Here before our time
Here after our time
Timeless and tireless
An ancient among the ancient
A wanderer in the Bluegrass
