Here are the basics for this year's RAMSHA Gathering, June 13.
We'll let you know as we work out details.
The day will start with a visit to Ruddles Station (Cynthiana, KY) and end
at Fort Boonesborough State Park (Winchester/Richmond, KY). Although our
main program will be on Saturday June 13, there will be activities
continuing at Ft. Boonesborough that Sunday.
Here are what details we have so far, along with tentative times:

- 11:30 - lunch at Ft. Boonesborough (snack bar).

from BB to Ruddles & Blue Licks).

Sunday - participate in the Ft BB activities, OR we can suggest other
local sites of interest (if you come on Friday, there are more good
historical places to visit).

going on at Fort BB, called A Gathering of Descendants. This is geared
towards research of families on the frontier & at Ft BB.

Here is a description of the Fort event:
Fort Boonesborough A Gathering of Descendants 6/13/2015 to 6/14/2015
Fort Boonesborough will have a weekend that we hope will remind folks of
what homecomings and family reunions are about, with a bit of a twist! We
want to welcome everyone who had ancestors who came to Fort Boonesborough
in the 18th century and played a part in the early settlement of Kentucky.
We will have resources and information available about many of the folks
who were here in those early days, ideas of where to find genealogical
information, museum exhibits of artifacts from the original fort site,
authors on hand to sign books about early days of the fort, the people,
and surrounding areas, and ongoing historical interpretation of the daily
lives, chores, skills and trades of those who came here during that time.
Representatives from the Dr. Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History,
The Filson Club, Eastern Kentucky Library and Archives, and some local
Historical Societies will be on here to assist with information on
Genealogy, early Kentucky cemeteries, early Madison county Family History,
and more. This event is free with regular paid admission to the fort.
Thanks. Keeping Sat open. Sunday?
Don't do Facebook so did not open that site
Looking forward to gathering

The Ruddells and Martins Station
Historical Association Annual Gathering was held in the Arlington Room of
the Worthington Center at Blue Licks Resort State Park Saturday June
At the beginning of the business meeting, the only
President RAMSHA has had since its formation in March 1998, H. Don Lee,
stepped down from his post and turned chairmanship of the meeting over to
1st Vice President Jon Hagee. The membership attending voted to accept
Don's resignation. Then the members elected Jon Hagee to be President,
Bill Overbey to be 1st Vice President, and Don Lee to be the Secretary and
Treasurer, filling the position held by his wife, E. Carol Lee, until her
death in March 2014. The position of 2nd Vice President and Recording
Secretary was left open.
Then the members voted to change the
bylaws to create the position of President Emeritus. The members elected
Don Lee to that position.
Following the business meeting, the
program consisted of two parts. First, Quinton Tyree of the Park Staff,
presented an analysis of the Battle of Blue licks fought, at the Park
location August 19, 1782, by three Kentucky units of the Kentucky Militia
versus the British and Indian forces. Second a three-person group from
West Virginia, Thadd McClung, his son Ayden and Bill Hunt came as the
King's 8th Regiment of Detroit who (along with Canadian militia and
several hundred Indians) took the Kentucky forts in 1780. They gave a
fascinating presentation of the uniform, gear, and firearm of a British
Following lunch at the Hidden Waters
Restaurant of the Park, Jon Hagee and Quinton Tyree led the group to the junction of the Buffalo Trace and battlefield where they described the
battle that had taken place there August 19, 1782. The pioneers had passed
through the ruins of the abandoned Ruddells Station immediately before the
Battle of Blue Licks.
Then Jon Hagee led a caravan to Tanner's
Station which is a recreated 1784 fortified blockhouse. From there he led
the group to Nicholas County to the last cabin in Kentucky occupied by
Daniel Boone and family prior to moving to Missouri. Next the caravan
proceeded to Ruddles Mill to the Old Stonermouth Presbyterian Cemetery
where Isaac and Elizabeth Bowman Ruddell are buried. Then the caravan
drove by the old mill site on its way to the farm of Dunny and B. T.
Darnell (who was with us all day) to the site of Ruddell's Station and the
Burial Vault on the bank of the South Licking River.
Bill Overbey, 1st
