— 1780's —Simon Kenton, local militia leader, often greeted new families at Limestone Creek, emptying into the Ohio. Tobacco is inspected and weighed in the late 1780s, when Limestone is chartered as Maysville and Mason County created by Virginia. Folks settle in, or move west or north. President-to-be James Madison visited here before working on our Constitution in Philadelphia.
