  • Note:
    In the notes of Milton Howard Crum, who received the information from William Tufts. I believe these statements to be written by William Tufts:
    Was a soldier in the Revolution War. He applied for a Pension in 1834 and was living in Lawrence Co. KY. Adam and his wife came from Bedford Co. VA in 1806 and settled in Rock Castle in what is now called Martin Co. KY. From this couple have decended all the Crums of Martin, Lawrence and Johnson Co. as well as Wayne Co. WV. This family has been known for it's industry and the good morality maintained by it's members.

    The first cabin was built by a man named Nevens, in the year 1799. In the next year (1800) he was joined in his wilderness home by John Wilson, Jacob Noe, John Prinston, Richard Williamson, Hezekiah Wiley, Job Spence, Lazarus Damron, Daniel Cox, John Jarrell, and Henry Hampton. In the next ten years many other cabin homes appeared along the valleys and upon the hills of this region. Among those who assisted in establishing them were; William Thompson, Josiah Robinson, William Adams, Adam Crum, William Bromley, Micajah Frasher, James Vinson, Elijah Donathan, Richard Williamson, Thomas Copley, Jacob Marcum, William Crum, John Marcum, Josiah Marcum, Moses Marcum, James Kirk, William Ratcliffe, John Spaulding, Clemens Spaulding, Alexander Sutherland, Richard Evans, David Garred, John Cox, Samuel Damron, James Fraley, and Leonard Swearingen.
