There is a very interesting story about the occupant of this poplar log cabin. The log cabin is located on the farm of J. C. Greenwell, west of Bardstown, Kentucky on Highway 245. The cabin was built before Kentucky was a state.

Clotilda was born March 14, 1769, daughter of Lord and Lady Vincent of Ireland. She married Edward Columbus Bean, known as John Bean, in St. Mary's County, Baltimore Maryland. They came to Kentucky in 1798 with five children and seven slaves and Clotilda's sister, Elizabeth Vincent Kelly. She had three more children born in Kentucky. Her husband John Bean was killed by the Indians on a later return trip through Cumberland Gap and was buried there. Clotilda was a very devout Catholic woman who died September 13, 1864, and is the second oldest person buried in St. Joseph's Cemetery at Bardstown. Her tombstone was erected by one of her slaves, Joe Bean.

Two of her grandchildren married two of the daughters of John Rodgers, architect of St. Joseph Cathedral.

Also Clotilda donated the springs on 3 acres of her farm to get Sr. Catherine Spalding to build Nazareth to provide an education for the Catholic girls. This was deeded to Nazareth by Thomas Aud in 1822.
