ROGERSÂ’S FORT. This lay on a tract of land between Buffalo Creek, east, Cedar Creek, west, Shephardsville Rd, north and Boston Highway 62 south. It was founded by Col. James ROGERS who was born in VA 1742 and died in Ky in 1828. KENTUCKY BAPTISTS, by J. H. Spencer, page 184, 185, 186 states that James Rogers was an early preacher in Lick Creek Church. He was quite a prominent Citizen of Nelson, and served in two of the Danville Conventions." A history/genealogy column in THE KENTUCKY STANDARD, April 17, 1985, by David Hall, (Bardstown, KY) has the following on Rogers Station. " Rogers Station grew from early land deal. William Bard put together one of the earliest real estate deals in what is now Nelson Co. In 1779, probably the summer months, Bard led a party out from the Falls of Ohio to view some "Improvements" grouped around the Buffalo Creek area. He was offering these
"land claims" for sale. among the group was Co. James Rogers who later recalled some details of that trip.
In the spring of 1780 Col. James Rogers took permanent possession of the preemption west of Buffalo Creek, a part of that area then called :"Bard's Flat" Rogers Station rose in the wilderness and quickly provided temporary shelter for many settlers pouring into Nelson.

Not many of the names are known of those who lived here, but those found included: James ROGERS and his family; his brothers Matthew, and Jonathan, were there. Evan WILLIAMS and Wm KEITH were likely residents. Atkinson HILL was there before relocating to GOODINÂ’s Station. Mesheck CARTER and his family and likely John RAY and and Joseph BARNETT. William BARD was here in 1780.

This concludes this series.
