I may have a list of the participants and those killed, I'll have
Certainly if you go to the battlefield park you can see most of the names
the monument there. I'm not sure if you live somewhat close. I think the
Register of the Kentucky Historical Society printed the list based on
numerous sources. This may be the one I have. Also the book Rebel
has some of those captured during the battle.
Hi Jim and all,
Largely because four of my 6-8th ggfathers and a 6th ggmother (first name
unknown) were killed by Indians in New England and Pennsylvania (My 8th
ggmother from Deerfield, Mass was kidnapped and enslaved for 5 years.), I am
trying to identify settlers killed by Indians on the American frontier over
the last nearly 400 years. So far I have identified about 20,000 people known
to have been killed. 7,000 of them are from only four states (Minnesota -
875, New Mexico - 1,250, Ohio - 3,650, and Pennsylvania - 1,500).
The hardest part is giving those people their back their names as well as how
they died, and a specific date and location. It will eventually all be on a
Web site. If you can share anything with me on the names of those killed at
Blue Licks it will help. I could also use help on the names of those killed
at Ruddles and Martins. What I have so far is sketchy. Thank you.
I wish I had known about Blue Licks the last time I was in Lexington--it is
Barry in Tallahassee
