 Includes NotesNotes for John Haggin:
"Capt. John Haggin was born in 1753 near Winchester, Va. In early life he removed to western Pennsylvania, where he married and served in Dunmore’s campaign of 1774. He was one of the earliest settlers of Kentucky, coming out in the spring of 1775 with his wife’s uncle, Col. John Hinkston. The next year he brought out his family and built a cabin on Hinkston’s fork of Licking; but because of Indian hostilities he removed that summer to McClelland’s Station, on the site of the modern Georgetown. Haggin was at McClelland’s when George Rogers Clark arrived at Limestone (Maysville) with gunpowder for the Kentucky settlements, and was one of the party who helped to carry it in to Harrodsburg. About that time (Jan. 1777), McClelland’s Station was broken up, and the Haggins removed to Harrodsburg. There he had numerous adventures with Indians, was closely pursued, and at one time he was supposed for over two weeks to have been killed or captured. But later he walked into his cabin quite unconcerned, greeting his wife with, ‘How are you by this time, Nancy Unknown’"
