Still working on the backtrace. I need to verify further but have reason to believe Ezekiel Anderson may have been in Fort Allison, Illinois prior to his marriage to Winnie Goin in Kentucky 1815.
A few excerpts which give rise:
"...The construction of this defensive arrangement was similar to that at St. Francisville, above described. Besides the Allisons, the families of Thomas Mills, William Stockwell, McBane, William Hogue, Daniel and Henry Kuykendall, and the colored families of Anderson, Morris, and Tannann were early inmates of the fort. "
"...Samuel was a blacksmith and a devout member of the Primitive Baptist Church. The families first attended Maria Creek church on the Indiana side of the Wabash. This church building was later moved to the campus of Vincennes University where it is now the university chapel. The university library has the minutes of the church, which was the first in the U.S. to formally adopt a resolution condemning slavery. One reason for the Allison's move to IL was that their group included some free blacks who were discriminated against in KY."
The possible dates or from 1809 to 1825
