Farm boys generally learn to drive tractors at a young age. But learning to drive as young as preschool is exceptional. On the other hand, tractors were much simpler when Bobby Wilson started driving at an early age. “I was placed on a tractor at the age of 5.

Bobby and Donna Wilson along with their son, Samuel, reside in the southwestern community of Morgantown, Ky. Founded in 1810, this bustling little hamlet is contained in Kentucky’s cave region. It may have been named Funkhouser Hill after Christopher Funkhouser, who donated land for the city. However, further records suggest that Funkhouser may have eventually named Morgantown to honor a hunter named Morgan or Daniel Morgan Smith, the first child born in the city.
