Matthias Yocum's Station

The Yocum family lived on the edge of the frontier in Virginia, North Carolina, and finally Mercer County, Kentucky.

Matthias Yocum established the station on his excellent and well-watered settlement and preemption. 

His daughters married into the Ray and McGary families. Son, Jesse Yocum, survived the Battle of Blue Licks.  (Learn more about Pioneer Stations.)
