John William Settle is the grandson of William Settle, whose family moved from VA to Barren Co., KY in 1798. Members of the family were gunsmiths and made Ky flintlock rifles, some of which are in existence today. They are highly prized by collectors and antique-firearm fanciers. There is a KY highway historical marker #687 on Ky Hwy 252 in Barren Co., some five miles SW of Glasgow, Ky dedicated to Settle Rifles.
