Samuel HORNBACK and John REED owned and operated a mill (grist and saw) on Strodes
Creek in Bourbon Co., KY.xiii “The 1787 Court received several petitions to erect mills along
the Licking River and at Houston Fork. By 1778, some citizens sued Samuel HORNBACK and
John REED for flood damage to property adjoining HORNBACK’s mill. The Court ordered
appropriate adjustments and compensation to HORNBACK’s neighbors (Bourbon Co., KY
Court Order bk A, pg 148).” “Bourbonites held a cattle show at HORNBACK’s mill in 1818 or
1819. The mill was the logical choice as it was located at the crossroads of Winchester Pike and
Ironworks Rd.”xiv John REED and Samuel HORNBACK are supposed to have each purchased
½ the land for the mill.xv John REED purchased Samuel HORNBACK’s heirs rights in the mill
after Samuel’s death.xvi

Samuel HORNBACK and his wife moved from Moorefield, Hardy Co., WV to Bourbon Co.,
KY abt. 1788. He built a water and/or gristmill (referred to at various times as HORNBACK
mill, REED mill and THATCHER mill) on Johnson Fork of Strodes Creek of the Licking

“Among the early settlers of what now forms Clintonville Precinct were those of BRISTOW,
PETTIT and REED. The latter was the first owner of a mill, which after words passed into the
hands of Mr. HORNBACK, then to Mr. THATCHER. It was a saw and grist mill and is now
owned by Matt D. HUME …”xviii “Mrs. PEIRCE, wife of Samuel, residing in ? Co., KY. Her
grandfather was Samuel HORNBACK. Her father, John REIDE. Her uncle George REIDE …
I was five years old when we came to KY. We started from South Branch, within ½ mile of
Moorefield, in April. We came over to George Cr. … There we were detained six weeks getting
boats built … We landed at Maysville, the 1st of June … We went to near Harrodsburgh. This
was in July. In October, we came over to CARTWRIGHT’s Station. Mrs. PEARCE’s father,
John REIDE, built the mill where THATCHER’s is now. It was of logs, at first. Got burned
down … 6 or 7 families came down when we did and had about 40 head of horses also of cattle
and sheep.”xix

“We came in Jun-1788; and abt. The last of harvest, we went down and began to build cabins
and dig the race. Old Jno. REID, son (in-law) of old Sam’l HORNBACK helped his f. in law
build the mill. They were in partnership. Indians never troubled them.”xx
