Stephen Langford established Langford's Station in 1792 in what was Lincoln Co., KY before portions become Madison, KY and then Rockcastle Co., KY in 1810. Stephen assisted families in their travels through the Cumberland Gap from North Carolina to KY. From census records, we can see that he travelled back and forth from North Carolina to KY. It is not known if he married the first two women he had children with (1st ? wife was poss. Marie Singleton, and ? 2nd wife was Elizabeth Ross Brown who was previously married to Benjamin Brown. It has been said that Elizabeth Ross Brown and her children helped to establish Langford's Station with Stephen Langford in 1792. On June 17, 1796, Stephen Langford, Valentine Harmon, and William Henderson purchased 2000 acres (Barbour Survey), which included most of present day Mount Vernon, KY. Many online sources indicate that Stephen Langford was murdered by the Harpe brothers, but we find an 1810 census for Stephen Langford in Rockcastle County and it appears that he was living near David Owen who was married to Winifred Mullins Owen (sister to Lois Mullins Langford). Lois Mullins Langford married Stephen Langford July 22, 1807 in Lincoln Co., KY. Stephen Langford was also living near Lois Mullins' Langford's brothers Champ and Gardner Mullins. It is believed that Stephen Langford's brother Thomas Langford b. abt 1774 was murdered by Micajah Harpe.
