    Notes 
    • Luke was of Irish descent. In 1796 Luke Kelley and family were among the first settlers in Union Landing. That year also come the Davisson, Dollarhide, Yingling, Ferguson and Gilruth, all whom were farmers. Luke Kelley purchased a mill on the river for grinding corn in 1799, he then proceeded to built a strong pier of timber and stone, behind which the mill was secure from ice. The customers to this mill came from above Big Sandy, on both sides of the river to below Little Sandy. Mr. Kelly then proceeded to manufacture the proceeds of this mill into whicky for the people, and swill for his hogs. Up from the mill, Kelley then built the first meeting house in Lawrence County. It was a round log structure one story high, with a clapboard roof, puncheon floor, split log seats, and about 18 to 20 feet square. It was truly a rough building, but equal to the necessity of the times. His son John, built a horse mill in 1803, a steam mill in 1819 and a steam saw mill in 1830.
