In the spring of 1804, Simon Vannorsdell, acting as agent for the heirs of John and Elizabeth Kuykendall, arrested two negroes named George and Peggy at Vincennes, and was about to carry them out of the Indiana Territory.” John and Elizabeth Kuykendall apparently died shortly before the spring of 1804 leaving George and Peggy to their children, however these slaves apparently were able to escape to the Indiana Territory. Simon Vannorsdel had tracked them to the Indiana Territory, arrested them and planned to return them to the Heirs of John and Elizabeth Kuykendall in order to settle their estate.
I need to know which County in Kentucky that John and Elizabeth were living in when they did, if they left a will and any other helpful information. Simon Vannorsdel was either from Henry, Shelby or Mercer Counties Kentucky.
Information would be very much appreciated.
