About Samuel Hoskins

Anna Palmer Kuster had papers that said : Catherine Hoskins was born in (probably) King and Queen County, Virginia, around 1717 and was probably the daughter of Samuel Hoskins and Mary Brereton, and very possibly the descendant of Nicolas Hodgskines (Hoskines) who came to Virginia at age 27 on the Ship Edwin in 1616 or more probably the descendant of Bartholomew Hoskins, who was in Virginia by 1616.

Catherine married Hugh Sanders of Spottsylvania County around 1735 and they had 12 children , 8 girls and 4 boys.

in 1782 after the death of her husband, Catherine left Virginia for the new state of Kentycky with the remaining members of her family. In 1781 several of her children and their spouses had gone to Kentucky. Her son in law, Lewis Craig (Elizabeths husband) was then the head and leader of a Baptist Church called the "Traveling Church". When he took his church to Kentucky, approximately 600 0f his members inclucing slaves, went with him. They first settled at Craigs Station on Gilbbert Creek. In the spring or early summer they moved to Bryans Stationand were there when the Indians attacked (under Simon Girty) in August of 1782. Whether or not Catherine was there by that time is unkiown, but several of her children and their families were there during the attack.

Catherines sonin law, Lewis Craig, sestablished the first Baptist Church in Kentucky. He moved to Braken County or Mason County in 1793. He was a stone mason and had built the first court house in Kentucky in Mason County ( what was called the old Washinton Courthouse). A memorial was supposed to have been placed in his honor near Minerva around 1930.

Another soninlaw of Catherine Hoskins Sanders, Perter Gatewood (husband of Sally Sanders) is said to have brought to Kentucky a copper still. Alledgedly he brought the still into Kentucky on horseback and this was supposed to be the first liquer still in the state.

Catherines date of death or place of burial is unkown.
