Hello, my name is Ray Jackson and I am a descendant of Colonel John Grant In 1779, John Grant, a nephew of Daniel Boone rode into Bryan's Station with a group of men that came with him from Boonesborough After a brief stay, John and a group of settlers headed on towards the north east and established what has become known as "Grant's Station." Grant's Station, also known as Grant's Fort, is located at the head of a small tributary of Houston Fork approximately six hundred feet northwest of present day Bryan Station Road It was established to assist Bryan's Station with its influx of settlers amounting to about twenty to thirty families According to John Grant, in a letter sent to Colonel John Todd of the Fayette militia on April 24, 1780 the following people were staying at the fort... On June 22, 1780, an army of nearly six hundred Indians and British soldiers led by Captain Henry Byrd of the British 8th Regiment of Foot along with and Simon Girty, launched an attack on Ruddle's Station and Martin's Station as well Shortly thereafter, about 60 Indians splintered off from this group and attacked and burned Grant's Station During this attack two of the Stucker men and one woman by the name of Mitchell were killed Due to the fear caused by Bird's attack on Kentucky, many families abandoned their homes and went east This happened with Grant's Station as well John Grant and the station's residents abandoned the fort in 1780 but John Grant returned by 1784 and had it rebuilt But by the late 1790s, John Grant sold off his Bourbon County property, which included Grant's Station and went into the salt mining business in what is now known as Grant's Lick just south of Cincinnati, Ohio I am very glad that Grant's Station and its history are being preserved Kentucky history for the Grant family is more than just a paragraph in a history book... they lived it! And without the preservation of historical finds such as Grant's Station history becomes nothing more than... words in a book... Thank you
