At a point not far above the present site of Cincinnati, OH, Indians attacked the boat, in this attack their young son James Baird was wounded, he carried to his grave the evidence of that contest. They landed at the Falls in February of the latter year (1790) when only a few log cabins marked the present site of the city of Louisville. From there they removed to Bairdstown, KY and lived there until February 1794 when the family moved to Hartford, KY and settled there.
