William Vaughn (Contributed). On the morning of January 19, 1921, in his
90th year, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. A.R. Humble. Mr. William Vaughn
heard the voice of the Master, "Well done, good and faithful servant, enter
thou into the joy of thy Lord." Mr. Vaughn was born in Russell County, April
16th, 1831, where he lived all of his life until last October when he came to
Somerset to spend the winter with his daughter and son. He was married to
Miss Sarah Evelyn Bradley in 1864 and to this union were born six children,
two boys and four girls, of whom only two are left. Mr. O.B. Vaughn and Mrs.
A.R. Humble, of Somerset. On Sunday morning before he was stricken he was at
church, as always was his custom and great pleasure having been a member of
the Methodist Church since early manhood. He ate his noonday meal on
Wednesday, apparently as well as usual, and after he with the rest of the
family, were sitting talking, no one saw the grim gaunt form that there
awaited; but the hour glass was nearly run out, and he was stricken
speechless, his quivering heart had felt the icy touch, so faint and weary he
was laid upon his bed, from which one day later he was called home to rest.
Death had no terrors for him, other than the momentary pain. He was a true
Knight of the Cross, clad in whole armor of God; and having on the breast
plate of righteousness his feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of
peace and protected by the shield of faith, and the helmet of salvation;
praying always, and watching the progress of God's marching host. His life
was marked with deep humility, his prayer, "Not my will, but Thine, be done,"
and all the power of his good life, he laid in thankful consecration at the
feet of Jesus. His sympathy was as tender and gentle as a woman's and none
ever came to him with their troubles that did not find him ready to live the
best of counsel and direction to the true source of comfort. His earthly
labors are ended. He has been called to the presence of the King, and
answering that summons, he has passed from the care of loved ones on earth,
and there are tears here; but in Heaven there are those dear ones who are
waiting and watching his coming with joy and gladness. His loving
companions, those long lost children, the many souls who had found Christ
through is counsel, all these to welcome him home. And greatest of all, the
Master's voice gave him the welcome plaudit, "Well done good and faithful
servant, enter thou into the joy of thy Lord." He held the lamp of truth
each day, So low that none could miss the way; And yet so high, to bring in
sight, That picture fair, the world's great light, That gazing up, the lamp
between, The hand that held it secure was seen.

Vaughn. The Adair County news had the following article about Mr. William
Vaughn who died at the home of his daughter Mrs. A.R. Humble this city, two
weeks ago: "The news of the demise of Mr. William Vaughn, perhaps the oldest
citizen of Russell County, reached here late last Friday afternoon. He had
gone from his home county to Somerset where his son, Mr. Otho Vaughn and his
daughter Mrs. Dolph Humble, reside, and while there he was taken sick, dying
in a few hours. He had reached the ripe age of 89, and until the last few
years had been an active and influential man in the county and in religious
affairs. He was a very ardent member of the Methodist Church and his purse
was at all times open to meet the expenses of the organization. He was a k
ind, lovable old Kentucky gentleman, his face marking him as an honest man.
The deceased spent the major portion of his life at Denmark, where he engaged
in farming. Later he removed to Russell Springs, that place being his post
office when the end came. His remains were conveyed from Somerset to Russell
Springs and after funeral services were interred in the Jamestown cemetery by
the side of his wife, who died many years ago. The deceased was an uncle of
Mr. W.T. and Solomon McFarland, of this place, both of whom attended the last
sad rites. The last time the editor of this paper talked to Mr. Vaughn was
at Russell Springs and in the conversation he said that he was ready to cross
to the other side; that he longed to be with his loved ones who had already
landed on the celestial shore."

Vaughn. Mr. William Vaughn of Russell Springs, Ky., who had been spending
the winter with his daughter, Mrs. A.R. Humble, died at the home of Mrs.

some time. Funeral services were held at the Humble home Saturday afternoon

A.R. Humble and Mr. O.B. Vaughn both of this city, are his only surviving

1818?FIRST BANK IN PULASKI COUNTY: From biographical sketch posted for Andrew Jackson James, accessed 12 June 2007, by shb: ?A possible catalyst for the career of A.J. James was Tunstall Quarles who organized and established the first bank in Pulaski County, Farmers Bank, in 1818. Just prior to the War of 1812, Quarles organized a large calvary troop at his own expense, that served in the war under his command. Quarles was both a State Senator & Representative at Frankfort. A.J. not only followed Quarles? lead into state politics, A.J. also was appointed to the bank?s board of directors under Quarles, SUCCEEDING PRESIDENT CYRENIUS WAITE. As the banking profession traversed a turbulent period up to and through the Civil War, the bank faithfully issued a 5% return to investors.? ?shb 12 June 2007

762 Catherine "Caty"2 Floyd (4017) (Matthew1) was born circa 1760. She married Charles Warren Sr. (4062) on 1 February 1796 at Lincoln Co., Kentucky, and the marriage application listing her father Matthew Floyd as giving consent for her to marry is another good possibility that she is the daughter of Matthew and sister to Abraham and Marjery. The only other Matthew Floyd that was in that area of Kentucky at that time would have been Abraham's son, and he was too young to have a daughter that age to marry as he was only 18 years old in 1796.39[1933380.ged]

763 Interview of Mr. Lyman Alexander in June 2016, a life-long resident of Ruth Ky and 87 years of age, He recalled "Uncle Henry and Aunt Samantha Warren". In that era, Mr. Alexander stated that folks referred to their elder neighbors and acquantances as "Uncle and Aunt", regardless of whether they were related.

Interview of Mrs. Vertie May Hughes, Age 92, another neighbor living on their family home place on Strawberry Rd on July 10, 2016, she also recalled "Uncle Henry and Aunt Samantha".

764 Log house at Ruth KY: Evidently Henry Warren occupied the old home beginning by at least 1925 and perhaps earlier, based on found photo of family at house in 1925. Local interviews recall them living there until their death. Harold Colyer recalls seeing Moses Warren living there in 1940s. Based on records, since Henry Warren died in 1944, son Moses likely lived there with his widow mother until her death in 1955. Interview of Ms. Linda Dugger in 2016, her great aunt Ina Colyer, rented the house from Joe Warren starting in about 1955. Linda stated that she began spending her summers in the house about 1955. She said that Ina's son Bobby Scroufe lived in the house with Ina. Linda said her Aunt Ina stayted there until early 1970's when Geneva Warren decided to move back into the house. This must have been when Geneva married Attorney Dan Canning. Geneva and Dan Canning remodeled the house in the early 1970's by adding porch, fireplace and rec room, kitchen and moved in until Geneva death in 1995. Henry Marshall Warren

766 It is reported that Mathew Warren was the the first and Second postmaster at Ruth Ky. It is believed it was this Mathew rather than his grandfather. Mathew Warren operated a store across the road from the Colyer/Warren log house starting in at least 1886 where his store ledger, copy of which on this website, shows business records from 1886. Matthew Warren

The Line Creek Baptist Church of Christ (most Baptist churches in the area used the ?Church of Christ? moniker), which exerted its influence over the community for more than 170 years, was reportedly organized in 1806. It was a member of the Cumberland River Association of United Baptists (CRA) sporadically from about 1811 until the formation of the Rockcastle Baptist Association (RBA) in 1871. There are also indications it was a member of a local Missionary Baptist association for which we have no records.

The establishment date of 1806 may be called into question because the source appears to be some 1900-era RBA minutes in which other church?s known beginning dates are inaccurately and inconsistently reported.

At times, Line Creek seems to have been among the stronger Baptist churches in the Pulaski-Rockcastle County area. Our statistical knowledge of the church is limited by a lack of early records. Even though CRA records exist for several year?s worth of annual meetings, as luck would have it Line Creek was not an Association member during most of those years; the church tended to ?letter up? only in the years when the meeting was held close enough for delegates to actually attend the annual gathering.

High points for Line Creek?s membership in the 19th century seem to have been in the early 1840s and again in the 1890s. While the attendance figures aren?t especially impressive for the early period, they do indicate a growing church. Membership in 1839 was 40, in 1840 it was 42. By 1843 membership had risen significantly to 61. However, by 1860 the membership looks to have fallen to only ten.

It?s not clear what precipitated the dramatic fall-off, but we do know something of importance took place. A possible cause may be found in an 1851 lawsuit between Andrew Decker and widow Martha Warren (her deceased husband, Mathew, was one of the church's former pastors) in which Decker sued Warren over a land boundary dispute when both tried to get a grant for the same property. The court ordered that the land be resurveyed; Decker subsequently won the case and was awarded the land, for which Warren refused to make the court-ordered deed. The court then ordered the Commissioner to make Decker a deed and for Warren to pay some of Decker?s court costs.

This is just the type of incident that could have caused major problems within the church, as church members were expected to work their difficulties out without resorting to lawsuits, not to mention the personal animosity which surely resulted. To make the situation even more potentially volatile, the Warrens and Deckers were probably the two largest families in the church and members of both had been held in high regard for at least a decade.

Of course, the decline may have been nothing more than a normal cycle which coincided with the destruction of the church building in the late 1850s. Two of the church?s strongest leaders, pastor Mathew Warren and Tilman Duncan, died between 1848 and the mid-1850s. Others, like Adam Renner, Andrew Baker, and Finch Shiplet, had left the church for congregations closer to their homes. As evidenced by the first entry in today?s existing records, something had happened to the previous building and, presumably, to the earlier records; probably both were destroyed by fire.

There were two other periods of known troubles. In February 1846 Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church received a request from Line Creek for help in order ?to settle a deficulty in the church.? We don?t know what the difficulty was. There was also a split of the church in 1868 over missionary issues. (Please go to the sections on the church records and church location for longer discussions of these issues.)

The church was still struggling in 1871 (only 25 members), the year the Rockcastle Baptist Association was formed. Line Creek was a charter member of the RBA, which was formed for geographical reasons. Perhaps not coincidentally, Line Creek began growing very quickly shortly thereafter. By 1876 membership was back to 1843 levels; the century mark was broken for the first recorded time in 1886. 19th-century membership reached its peak in 1894, when 148 individuals were listed on the church roll.

Membership records for the early 1900s show incredible growth and decline. Membership numbers approached 200 in the first decade, peaking at 283 in 1915. Then, in 1916, the numbers fall off dramatically to only 69. We have no indication of what caused this decline. The decade ended with the membership at 93.

For much of the middle 1900s the church once again struggled. The general population of the area had fallen significantly, and changing transportation patterns had left Line Creek isolated. The decline continued until 1976, when the doors of the church closed for three years. There were no services from March 1976 until May 1979. The reopening was short-lived, however?the doors closed for good in July 1979.

Tragically, the church building, which was built in 1880, was destroyed by fire in the fall of 2001.

Line Creek was the ?mother church? of Liberty Baptist Church in Laurel County, which was organized in 1839 with Mathew Warren as pastor. He was also the pastor at Line Creek at the time.

When inventoried in the 1970s, the Line Creek Church Cemetery contained 99 marked graves, the oldest dated 1888, and numerous unmarked ones.
