Welcome to this site dedicated to the pioneer families that settled the highlands of Eastern Kentucky and Southwest Virginia. The families listed herein are descendants of settlers who traveled through the Pound Gap from Virginia into what is now Letcher County, Kentucky -- the headwaters for the Kentucky, Big Sandy, and Cumberland rivers. This area was originally part of Floyd County, KY -- from it, other counties including Pike, Perry, Letcher and Knott were later formed.
