John Henry Frost - Captain   
Union Captain John Henry Frost’s two sisters Sarah Rebecca Frost and Julia were married to Kentucky Confederates – the Lyon brothers - Chittenden P. Lyon and Matthew S. Lyon.

Matthew S. Lyon, who married Sarah Rebecca Frost, daughter of John B. Frost, landowner with extensive acreage in Hopkins County on the waters of Pond River and Elk Creek. Frostburg Road is named in his honour. These two boys, Chittenden P and Matthew S., were the first cousins of General Hylan Benton Lyon, who in December, 1864, with 800 men, captured from the Union forces and burned, seven Kentucky Courthouses in 23 days, including the original Courthouses at Madisonville, as the bronze marker erected in the West lawn of Hopkins County Courthouse by the Kentucky Historical Society attests. However, General Lyons ordered all records removed from the Courthouse, and stored, before putting a match to it. Another son, Thompson A. Lyon, a son of Hon.Chittenden Lyon by his second wife and therefore a half brother to the two Lyon boys named above, also came to Madisonville, and married Julia Frost, another daughter of John B. Frost, and considered the fairest of the beautiful sisters. About 1847, these (three) Lyon brothers commenced trading and transacting business in Madisonville, in the firm name of M. S. Lyon and Bros., trading in real estate, and also as general dry goods merchant…

Dec 17, 1864 - Union supporters joined a regiment recruited locally by James Shackleford; Al Fowler recruited Confederate troops. The courthouse in Madisonville was burned by Confederates led by Gen. Hylan B. Lyon on December 17, 1864, as they passed through western ...Hopkins County and Madisonville were divided by the Civil War. Union supporters joined a regiment recruited locally by James Shackleford; Al Fowler recruited Confederate troops. The courthouse in Madisonville was burned by Confederates led by Gen. Hylan B. Lyon on December 17, 1864, as they passed through western Kentucky. The policies imposed by the occupying Union armies caused resentment and sparked sympathy for the Confederate cause.
