            This event happened shortly after our ancestors, John McIndoo and Charity Heady, arrived in Kentucky. James Heady (Charity's Brother) and John McIndoo the Scotsman, were among those ordered by the government in 1786 to take provisions and ammunition from the Kentucky settlements to the United States troops stationed near the fort at Vincennes on the Wabash River. On receiving the order, the Kentuckians prepared a keel boat, loaded it with provisions, and made arrangements to tow it up the Wabash.
