Henry H Hockensmith moved to Kentucky in about 1789 with his brother Jacob Jr. He came by water, first by the York River from near Hagerstowm Maryland, then over land to Ft Pitt. Then from Ft Pitt onto Limestone (Maysville) Kentucky on the Ohio River.
Henry Hockensmith settled in Scott Co Kentucky. He had a 244 acre farm on near Stamping Ground on the waters of Lecompte's Run on Cedar Pike. He built a three-bay, one and a half story log house in 1790 on top of a hill on his farm. He had a family cemetery 1000 feet west of his house. Lindsay's Station was built in the same year and it was less than a mile from the Henry Hockensmith's log home. This station was under a three day siege by Indians, this siege was recorded in the Draper Papers # (11CC169-171) so more than likely Henry Hockensmith was at the siege or forted up in his log cabin at the time of the siege.
Henry built a mill on his farm and other mills for the settlers of Scott County. In 1796 Henry and his brother Jacob purchased 132 acres in Franklin Co Kentucky on the North Elkhorn River from Lewis Craig.
Henry H Hockensmith estate was settled in 1852 after he had given his land to his wife in his will. The will was dated Aug 25 1840; also in his will he set aside $300 for his wife so she could purchase a Slave girl or to hire a Negro girl with the interest.
