Quote from Ricky Long e-mail dated 3/22/98 23:20:36 to Steve Johnson: "In the Draper interview, William Jr, son of Capt. McBride, talks about his uncle James McBride, who was one of the first white men to see KY. He adds that his uncle had lived with his father 2 years. I think I said earlier that it said William had lived with his father 2 years. this is wrong. It says James had lived with his father 2 years. Again, it's anybody's guess just what that means though. The interview also talks about 'my uncle Jonathan' who was a 'commodore in the last war; East Indies. He was there before the Revolution in the Colony's service. My uncle Francis was a spy under Col. Washington when he came out to Fort Pitt. Family was raised near Lancaster, PA.' "
