      "Here's what I show on Delilah b. ca. 1807 Fairview, Washington Co., KY m. 1830 Washington Co., KY, David Seybold.  She was the daughter of John Gordon Gorden b. ca. 1770 VA (prob. Hanover Co.) d. Fairview, Washington Co. KY m. ca. 1792, Mary (Unknown). "
      "I know you will wonder about the Gorden/Gordon spelling.  It seems that the Gorden's who "went west" spelled their names -en while those who stayed longer in KY spelled their names -on.  I understand the name -on in Scotland.  I have a photocopy of my ancestor William Bartlett Gorden's signature submitted for Barbara Ann's marriage license and he signed with an -en.  William Bartlett was the oldest son of Manoah "Noah" Gorden and Nancy Bartlett."
      "There is a biography on John G. Gordon's family in the "Washington County Bicentennial History 1792-1992" published by the Turner Publishing Co. in Paducah, KY.  In the course of my verification of the facts cited in the articles, I find it is generally accurate.  The book is still for sale...."
      "Hugh, Jr. was predictably, the son of Hugh, Sr. but his mother's name is unknown to me.  A Hugh Gordon was a silver assayer and smith in Edinburgh, Scotland ca. 1727 and our Hugh is believed to be a son. The names of other siblings are unknown.  Hugh, Jr.'s wife, Sarah Owens, is believed to be the daughter of Nathaniel Owens, also of VA."
      Jackie Hidgon jhigdon-at-bellsouth.net> wrote (11-9-98):
      "The only thing I have that differs with Mary Ann's info' is John Gordon's middle name.  In the Wash. Co. History Book 1792-1992 a descendant of Hugh Gordon listed him as Jordon Gordon. (ref. pg. 282 of this book) I have not been able to find the person who submitted this, so cannot say where the document he or she found John's name listed in this manner.  Another ref. in the same book can be found on pg. 318, under the article by Celia Keeling on her Keeling ancestors, wherein she lists his name simply "John Gordon".  A number of years ago I had the help of a very knowledgeable Washington Co. researcher working on these lines for me, Sarah Tucker, who is now deceased. Sarah was also a descendant of Hugh Gordon.  In this work she listed him as John Gordon and wife Mary, whose surname was unknown. Therefore, to not overlook the earlier listing of his name until it can be proved or disproved, I've listed him as John 'Jordon?' Gordon in my work."

      The first road through Sciota township was built about 1858.  The town of Sciota was organized as Clarksville in 1867 by William B. Clark.  It was later renamed Amicus and then Sciota after the township in which it was located.  "Among the early merchants were Obermeyer & Brothers, J.R. Seybold, R.L. Shouse and Silas Webb."
