Big Bill Hardin comes to Kentucky

Jadon Gibson

William “Big Bill” Hardin was a noted pioneer and Indian fighter. The Indians nicknamed him “Big Bill.” He wasn’t that big in today’s sense, six feet tall, but he had a large physique and was a tenacious fighter, just what was needed on the borderland. The Indians fought to dispel the settlers and the settlers fought to remain.

   Hardin descended from a family of French Protestants who fled France for Canada to escape religious persecution. The cold Canadian climate wasn’t agreeable to them so the three brothers migrated to Virginia, South Carolina and Kentucky.

Murder at the Halfway House, conclusion

Jadon Gibson

Deputy Charlie Cecil of the Bell County, Kentucky Sheriff’s Department, led a posse comprised of Lee Turner, Lew Mayes and Dave Bull in a search for Will and Alex Combs in October of 1898. The brothers were wanted for the murder of “Wild Bill” Turner, owner of the Halfway House, a loosely-run roadhouse. It was frequented by coal miners going to and from the Mingo Hollow Mine, near the Kentucky-Tennessee state line.

The search slowed before the posse found the area where the brothers `doubled back’ in an effort to lose their trackers. After several hours the trail led them to a section near the Bell County and Knox County line.

24 hours with Gen. John Hunt Morgan

Jadon Gibson

Confederate cavalry officer John Haps was totally spent and went to sleep with his horse’s bridle rein in hand.

   “I was sleeping soundly on the banks of the Ohio River at a place called Buffington Island; sleeping as soundly as a babe in mama’s arms. I was awakened suddenly by a strange sound. I had heard a groan where a horse and rider had fallen into an old cellar that was overgrown with weeds. Just as quickly my attention was drawn away where I saw men riding their horses as fast as they could…running toward haystacks a few hundred yards away. I looked toward the river (Ohio) and saw a gunboat and it was throwing shells over my head toward the fleeing horsemen.“

The Woes of Fanny Dickenson Scott, conclusion

Jadon Gibson

Fanny Dickenson Scott escaped from her Indian captors in what is now Ohio and it took her nearly a painstaking month to find her way back to her own people.

She had been captured by Indians after her husband Archibald Scott and their four children were killed during an assault on their fort-house June 29, 1785. After looting the home the Indians traveled northward for eleven days with only few stops for sleep and rest.
