Pioneers: Land Settlers:
David Barrow, a Baptist minister impressed by stories of the land that lay beyond the Appalachian Mountains, decided to leave Virginia in 1795 to settle in Kentucky. Barrow, like many pioneers, felt the pull of owning and farming the fertile Kentucky soil. In relatively unsettled Kentucky, he and pioneers of all regions, ethnic backgrounds, and occupation traveled through the Gap to start a new life.
