Does anyone know of any early (1830-1840) Adair County settlers that came from Christian County, KY?

Only thing I'm seeing in the early history is just Kentucky.
David Sloan was not one of the first wave. Says he was in later group who along with Ownbeys and others. Actually, does not say he came from Kentucky.

According to Violett's "History of Adair Co." the first settlers in 1828 were from Howard Co., Mo. southwest of Adair Co..
Sloan and Kirk were the first settlers in Kirksville(before it became Kirksville in 1841.)
Doesn't even mention that Kirk was whom Kirksville was named for. Or where they had migrated from.

I came across a tidbit where Andrew Bozarth originally came from Christian County, KY and wondered if any other families came with him.

This was the first settlement in what is now known as Monroe county, and was known for many years as the Fox Settlement. Mr. Fox acquired the land in and around the present site of Paris. After Monroe county was formed from Ralls county, Mr. Fox deeded part of his land to the county for the town of Paris. He was appointed commissioner to lay ff the town and sell the lots when Paris was selected as the county seat. He helped survey the first public road in the county. He and Robert Caldwell opened the first store in Paris, An article in the Christian written at the time of his death, stated that he was the first person in the county to be “baptized upon the simple confession of his faith”. This was at a Baptist meeting. Soon after he was one of six to organize the Christian Church. His history is the early history of the county and of the Christian Church, so devoted was his life to each. In 1866, he was elected a member of the state legislature.

o Bostick Talliaferro, Notes for George Slaughter:
He may have been an ensign in the Franklin co. , KY, militia in 1797. George Slaughter was on the tax roll of Bourbon Co. in 1800 and of Franklin Co. in 1801. He witnessed the will of McClanahan Moore in Bourbon Co. in 1807. (McClanahan Moore is said to be from Westmoreland Co., VA, son of Garland Moore and Martha/Ann McClanahan. Willis Field was his executor in Bourbon Co.]. In 1809 George Slaughter leased a furnished house in Bourbon Co. from John Porter for an annual rent of 110 pounds. He appears in the 1810 census at Paris, in Bourbon Co. [31610-10110], with a pretty large family. He rented the Kentucky Hotel in Lexington from Henry Clay in 1811 and acted as surety on the marriage bond of Lucy Ann Cochran (who married William Turner). By 1818 he appeared in a city directory for Lexington. He was listed as the sole white male with two slaves worth $500 at the boarding house of William T. Banton on Short St. in the city of Lexington. It appears as though his wife had died by that time. He was still in Fayette Co. when he acted as surety on the marriage bonds of his daughter, Lucy Ann Slaughter, to Julius H. Clarkson in 1825 and Gardner Price in 1831. In 1830 he was surety on the bond of Taliaferro Bostick to Mildred M. Syme (with Ann J. Syme giving consent). It was Bostick's second marriage, the first being to Margaret F. Syme three years earlier, where William Cochran (probably George's brother-in-law) had been the surety. I have been unable to determine where or when George Slaughter died, but neither he nor Cochran appears in the 1838 city directory (nor for that matter does Taliaferro Bostick). For some reason George did not appear as a head of household in the 1820 and 1830 censuses, although he was clearly in Fayette co. during each of them. My guess is that he died between 1830 and 1838. If he still owned two slaves when he died there should be a record somewhere regarding the disposition of the two slaves, but it is also possible that he lost ownership of them before he died.
