Aaron and Ruth had 15 children who mostly settled in the parts of Mason County which became Nicholas County and later Robertson County. Aaron was a Captain for Simon Kenton's Mason County Company of Spies which patrolled the Ohio River protecting the towns from Indian incursions from North of the Ohio. Ruth's family was from Maryland, where Aaron came from and who his parents were is still a mystery... We do have some hope in solving this though. The worldwide Wells Association is working with us on a DNA project. We've found some relations, but nothing definite.

This is also the Battle of Blue Licks reenactment and festival weekend. This is a wonderful time to visit the park. Although it doesn't fit in with our schedule, there is a Sunday Battle reenactment at 1:30. (IF you want to make a weekend of it, there is a battle reenactment on Saturday as well, with several workshops going on, museum, swimming, hiking, etc.
Click here for more information on the weekend events.
We will have a room reserved off the main dining room. You may want to use the entrance closest to the bridge (off Rt. 68). Go straight through, the back way by the River, to the lodge. We are pretty informal and should be finished before 3pm.
If you have something to share with the group, we'll be glad to hear from you! Please contact Jon Hagee. 859-230-5194
