Early Baugh families in Kentucky

The name, John Baugh, appears as a petitioner in the book, Petitioners of the Early Inhabitants of Kentucky. His name appears in the list of those signing Petition Number 9, endorsed 16 Oct 1779. In 1799, a John Baugh, Sr. received a land grant in Barren County, KY. I suspect this is the same John Baugh. If so, he remained in the area until about 1820 after which he moved to the Mount Vernon, Illinois area (Jefferson County, IL).
