Hugh McGary's Station

Hugh McGary brought his wife, Mary Buntin Ray McGary, and family to Kentucky in 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.)
