Near this site is the grave of Frances Dickenson
Scott Johnson (died 1796), sister of Henry
Dickenson who was the first clerk of Russell
County. In 1785, while living in Powell's Valley
in Scott County, her first husband, Archibald
Scott, and their four children were murdered
by Indians, and she was taken captive. She
ultimately escaped, and after wandering in
the rugged mountains of Kentucky for nearly
a month, made her way back to Russell County.
She later married Thomas Johnson.
