Descendants of Betty "Bess" (LaFORCE)

Generation No. 2


2. HANNAH2 (LAFORCE) (BETTY "BESS"1) was born ca 1745 in ????, and died in ????.

Notes for H
ANNAH (LAFORCE):
Hannah, one of the seven children of Betty captured in the Martin's Station Ky raid led by Capt's Bird and McKee (June 1780) . Hannah is recorded as having five (5) "yellow children" among the 13 slaves listed as belonging to the family of Agnes Moseby La Force.

There are records indicating Hannah may have still been living in 1820 and that she may have been the
wife of a Slave named Jack York, who belonged to the James Girty family. James was a brother to Simon
Girty, Girty's will of 1804 mentions seven (7) slaves, including one named Jack an another named Hannah. Is this the Hannah (La Force) , who was taken by Frederick Fisher following the Martin's Station raid?
