Methodist Preacher on horseback, American frontier family waves goodbye. The American frontier became the domain of the 18th century Methodist preacher. Alone on horseback going from one appointment to the next these “circuit riders” pioneered gospel missionary work throughout the western lands. In 1806 Abraham Lincoln’s parents Thomas Lincoln and Nancy Hanks were married by a Methodist circuit rider in a small Kentucky cabin. Bill Monroe learned the tune from his Uncle Pen, and taught it to Kenny Baker. The rest is history.
