Beatys and their connections, the Rayburns and Dysarts, also a large connection of the Berry family; five or six Lowrey families; the Sharps and Laughlins, a large connection, including the Kings and Youngs. These Youngs were not the German family, they were of Irish descent. I have named such as occurs to me, but that the reader may know who were the heads of families that composed the Rev. Charles Cummings' congregation at Sinking Spring, in the Grace Spring neighborhood, I will give a list of their names, and it must be remembered that they were all Presbyterians.
"These families were in the county previous to 1772:
George Tutor ****** George Teater of Garrard Ky
Robert Buchanan, Jr.
John Lester George Clark
LATE ARRIVALS AFTER -1783 German families, as far as I can now call their names to mind, were the Fleenors, a large family, the Gobblers, Mungles, Sydars, Huntsuckers, Kaylors, Whisenands, Davaults, Funkhousers, Kniceleys, Lindamoods, Statyers, Zimerlies, Teetors, Goodmans, Shelleys, Munfours, Jinks and Droakes, who came to the county some years afterwards. There are others, whose names I cannot just now recollect.
(Gov. David Campbell)
EXCERPTS FROM GOV CAMPBELL WASHINGTON CO.

A VAST DISATANCE FROM WHERE GEORGE TEATER OF KENTUCKY SAMUEL GIBSON BENJAMIN TOTEN LIVED AT THE MIDDLE FORK OF THE HOLSTON ON BAKERS TRACT.
THE GOV NAMED GEORGE TEATER HERE AS GEORG TUTOR AS A NON GERMAN
THERE WERE FUCKHOUSERS AND FLEENORS BEFORE 1783 FROM SHANENDOAH BUT NO GERMAN TETERS UNTIL 1782.
