"Joseph Scholl was born in 1755, son of William and Leah Morgan Scholl, in Page County, Shenandoah Valley, Virginia1.

The Scholls arrived at Boonesborough on December 25, 1779 and moved on to Boone's Station that same day. Joseph was with his father, brothers (Peter and Abraham) and Daniel Boone at the Battle of the Blue Licks (August 1782).

He, with his family, settled at Boone's Station along with the Daniel, Samuel, and Edward Boone families, and the William Hays family. In the fall of 1784, Daniel Boone and his sons-in-law, William Hays and Joseph Scholl moved from Boone's Station and settled about five miles away on Marble Creek north of the Kentucky River3.

Prior to the fall of 1784 while still in Clark County, Joseph had married Levina Boone, daughter of the famous pioneer, Daniel and Rebecca Bryan Boone. They had the following children4,5:

*Septimus, born November 21, 1789, died 1849, who married Sally Miller

The Pike County History6, gives the following account of Joseph's home in Clark County:
"In 1792 (the year that Kentucky became a state), Joseph and his brothers (Peter and Abraham) established themselves on a 1400-acre tract that had been preempted by Daniel Boone about ten miles east of present Winchester in present Clark County, Kentucky, and about 15 northeast of Boonesborough. Here the three Scholls established the station of Schollsville, site of the present railroad station of Hedges, which stands near the center of the old Boone-Scholl tract. This land was settled and preempted by Daniel Boone, who afterward assigned it to William Scholl. William intended it for his three sons, Peter, Abraham and Joseph, but made no legal transfer and died without a will, and the rest of his children brought suit for an equal partitioning of this land and won. The land was divided among the heirs of William Scholl by an order of the court. Abraham, Peter and Joseph then bought out the other heirs and continued in possession of Schollsville."

"Schollsville Station was never attacked but was threatened in 1793. The Scholls were warned and all the men nearby came into the fort to defend it. The Indians suddenly turned east and attacked Morgan's Station and captured or killed all the inmates excepting an old Negro who saw a crow light on the barn and regarded it as an evil omen and he made his way out of the fort and escaped."
