NKY History Hour: Revolutionary War Patriots of Northern Kentucky
For many local residents, a drive through Kenton County is a trip through family history, with area roads bearing the names of ancestors who played important roles in Northern Kentucky history.
Two of these are William Stephens, and John Metcalf, both recognized as Revolutionary War patriots by the Daughters of the American Revolution. William Stephens, who received 2000 acres of land on what is now Stephens Road for his war service, was honored in a ceremony at the Independence, KY courthouse. John Metcalf came to Kentucky on a raft, accompanied by Simon Kenton. One of his sons, Thomas Metcalf, became the tenth governor of Kentucky.
