      On Monday, February 12, 1798 at the house of William Anderson in Newport, James Lee was the first person granted a license to solemnize matrimony in the new Campbell County. He was a regular member of the Baptist Church.
      In July of 1801 "HENRY BLAGRAVE having produced testimonials that he is in regular communion with the Baptist Society is therefore licensed to solemnize the rights of Matrimony, he having together with Joseph Dicken and John Roberts his securities acknowledged Bond as the law directs." It is believed that HENRY BLAGRAVE was from Lunanburg County, Virginia but he came to Harrodsburg in Mercer Co., Kentucky, where in 1797 he married ANN LINDSAY SUTTON, widow of Robert Sutton, who died in 1795, and step-daughter of William Kennedy, all from Charlotte County, Virginia. By 1799 they are all in Campbell County. This consisted of ANN [LINDSAY SUTTON] BLAGRAVE's daughters, Mary Jane, wife of Joseph Dicken; Margaret, wife of Charles Dicken, later in 1803 to be the wife of William Gosney; Ann, wife of John Anderson, and the Kennedys.
      By 1802 there is HENRY BLAGRAVE's Meeting House as mentioned in an 1818 deed. However, the first record is in 1804 when Isham Prewit of Mercer County sold for 40 shillings to William Gosney, Deacon to the Brush Creek Society of the Baptist Church and his successors in office, 2 acres of land on Brush Creek adjoining John Clark's and Robert Sutton's surveys. The 1802 transaction was probably no more than a handshake, a gentleman's agreement, that was regularized in 1804.
