|1784||Norton Family moves to Bourbon, KY|
Elizabeth Norton married to William Benefiel in Fayette, KY. later Bourbon, KY
William Benefiel's, parents were from Scotland and settled in the State of Maine where my grandfather was born in the year 1763, July 19. He emigrated to Kentucky in the time of the Indian trouble and was a spy with the Wetzel boys guarding the frontier from the attacks of the Indians that caused so much trouble in the early settling of Kentucky.
You have no doubt heard of Lewis Wetzel whose fathers family were all killed but Lewis, Jacob and Samuel who escaped. They swore vengeance against the Indian race. They acted as spies and my grandfather was often in danger of his life owing to the daring deeds they did in revenge for the murder of their father, mother and three sisters, and their house burned. Lewis name went down in history. I have read the history. Grandfather has often told me of many of their daring deeds. "Letter from Eliza Trimble"
