Hugh McGary's Station

Hugh McGary brought his wife, Mary Buntin Ray McGary, and family to Kentucky i 1775 with Daniel Boone.

McGary and his stepson, James Ray, established this station around 1779 on McGary's 400 acre settlement at Shawnee Springs. 

McGary was a justice in Kentucky's first court, was promoted from Captain to major, then Colonel in the Kentucky Militia and was a trustee of the town of Warwick.

McGary purportedly led the charge that began the ill-fated Battle of Blue Licks.

Draper and Robert B. McAfee indicate a first McGary's Station was within sight of Fort Harrod. (Learn more about Pioneer Stations.)
