When you drive by Alfred Smith’s property on North Fifth Street in Danville, you immediately notice how neat the house is and how beautiful the marigolds and other flowers are that line the walk to the front door. But something else stands out — a yard sign with religious messages on both side. One side, the message warns that death is the wages of sin. On the other side, the message promises that salvation will lead to eternal life. As proud as he is of his immaculate lawn and handsome house — he bought it more than three decades ago as a condemned structure, then used his construction skills to turn it into a showcase for the neighborhood — Smith believes the most important thing on his property is that sign.

President Abraham Lincoln's ancestors came to America in 1637 from England and settled in New Hingham, Mass. The family later moved to Virginia, and into the wilderness west of the Allegheny Mountains to what would become Kentucky. Part of the family kept moving. The president's family moved on to Indiana. Abraham later went to Illinois and lived in Springfield at the time he was elected president. President Lincoln's grandfather, Capt. Abraham Lincoln, was the first of the family to arrive in the wilderness of Kentucky in the 1780s.

This is the last of three articles describing the John Holder Trail at the Lower Howard's Creek Nature and Heritage Preserve. As before, we will focus on the people who lived or owned land along the trail and the events that occurred there. The land referred to as the Benjamin Hieronymus place is located on a rise above the Kentucky River cliffs just west of and above Hall's Restaurant. It is bound on the south and west by Athens-Boonesboro Road, on the north by the Bush Mill Road (the Preserve entrance road)
