Biography

"Lucretia was born about 1780 in Washington County. Va. and died about 1833. Lucretia was the daughter of Axton Scott and Dorcas Wright Scott and married Ben Williamson. Ben Williamson and Lucretia had two children-Ben Williamson 1808-1899, and Dorcas Jordan Williamson 1809-1860.

Ben Williamson has been one of the most prominent names ever in Eastern Kentucky. When I was a boy growing up in Boyd county, Ben Williamson hardware was the primary hardware supplier to the entire Big Sandy Valley from Ashland to Pikeville and made regular deliveries to the entire area. Also, Williamson Wva was named for the Williamsons. Ben's father was Alden Williamson who was an early explorer/settler in Eastern Kentucky, accumulated lots of land but died in 1816 as a result of of a rafting accident. In the early years before railroads settlers learned to harvest timber in the winter months, move them to larger streams and rivers, assemble them into rafts and float with them to Catlettsburg, Ky where the Big Sandy river joined the Ohio river they were sold to timber dealers. Alden Williamson was born in New Kent County, Va to Hugh Williamson and Elizabeth Stewart Williamson. Hugh had come from Wales about 1720."[1]
