Singleton Insurance Agency was established as Ford Insurance Services, with Sammy L. Ford as principle owner, in 1971. Donnie Singleton joined the staff of Ford Insurance Services in 1975 after a two year tenure with Virginia Farm Bureau Insurance Company in Wythe and Bland Counties, Virginia.

The name of the agency was changed to Singleton-Ford Insurance Agency Inc. in January of 1976. The corporate owners of the agency were Sammy Ford, Donnie Singleton, and Danny Ford.

Donnie Singleton purchased the interest of the Ford brothers in January of 1978 and renamed the agency Singleton and Associates Incorporated, with Donnie Singleton being the sole owner.

In March of 1990, Singleton purchased Norton Insurance Agency, which dates back to the early 1930’s, from Bill and Arletta Norton, and moved all of the business from his original location on U.S. 25 behind the Rockastle County Courthouse to the location of the Norton Insurance Agency at 210 East Main Street in Mount Vernon, Kentucky, which is where the agency is still located today.

The roots of the Norton Insurance Agency went back many years to the Matty B. Robinson Insurance Agency from Mount Vernon, R.C. Anderson Insurance Agency from Brodhead, and Cox and Henderson Insurance Agency from Mount Vernon.
