I am looking for information about the murder of Abraham Becraft, allegedly at the hands of James Anderson in 1811. Here is a quote from Harry Enoch's "In Search of Morgan's Station":
"Abraham Becraft, the father, settled in the Bath County area and was killed in 1811. A grand jury returned an indictment for murder against one James Anderson, but he was never arrested or brought to trial".
Has anyone seen a copy of this indictment?From what I understand, it was the very first grand jury held in Bath County.(Bath County was formed from Montgomery County that same year).
I would appreciate any information about this case, especially about the identity of this James Anderson.
