1798 Will Bequeathing Land To A Daughter Captured By The Indians. Manuscript Will of Peter Foard, Madison County, Kentucky, March 4, 1798, 2 pp folio. After bequeathing land on Muddy Creek and in Buckingham County, Virginia to his sons and daughters, he leaves the land and plantation on which he lives to his wife, "Except fifty acres of land to be laid off at the North Corner of my land which…I give to my Daughter Polly, if She is ever recoverd from the Indians, together with one half of my household and Kitchen furniture, Stock of every kind and plantation utencials…." A touching commentary on the difficulties facing the early Kentucky settlers and the father who died still hoping that his daughter would be recovered. Archival fold repair and overall toning. Very Good.
Estimated Value $300 - 500.
