Taken from Charles Wallingsford's work:
Whaleys station - One of the early Stations of Mason County was established
by John Whaley, who came to Mason County from Loudon County, Virginia, prior
to 1786. He was a soldier of the Revolution. He married Nancy___________
whose maiden name we have never been able to establish. Nancy Whaley died in
Mason County, Kentucky after 1794, and prior to August 1, 1807, date of John
Whaley's will, which was proven in Mason County, Kentucky - October Court
Reference for Revolutionary Service -Virginians in the Revolutionary War - by
John H. Gwathmey - Page 819.
"John Whaley given Bounty Land for Service."
John Whaley signed the petition Aug 22, 1786 for the division of Mason County
from Bourbon County. A copy of this Petition is in Clifts History of
Maysville and Mason County, Kentucky by G. Glenn Clift.
