Johnston Funeral Home in Mount Vernon is in charge of arrangements. OUR TOWNS Mouase 1858, when Lincoln came to Southern Illinois to debate Stephen Douglas. However, Lincoln was in Gallatin County in 18-10 to spend more than a week participating in seven debates in Shawneetown and Equality, and proponents say that's when Lincoln would have visited Crenshaw, probably for a reception held to honor all the debate participants, regardless of political affiliation. There are other legends that tie Crenshaw to notable figures of the day, including some infamous ones. Nelson found a link between Crenshaw and outlaw James Ford, leader of the Ford's Ferry Gang.

Known as "Satan's Ford was a pirate, thief and murderer who terrorized travelers along the Ohio River from his base on Hurricane Island, a small island across from Elizabethtown on the Kentucky side of the river. Working in conjunction with the equally legendary Billy Potts, an innkeeper on the Illinois side of the Ohio, members of the Ford gang robbed and killed travelers. While doing research on Crenshaw, Nelson discovered a "stray book" in a Kentucky courthouse. According to the laws of the time, finders of stray livestock were required to record their finds with the court in the hope of keeping them. The outlaws stretched the law to allow them to keep "stray" flatboats.

Ironically, Ford was the Livingston County, sheriff and a justice of the peace. He amassed great wealth, but was gunned down in 1833 by a group of vigilantes. Until his death, Ford had leased the Lower Lick Salt Works. Nelson learned that after Ford's death, the salt works was turned over to none other than John Hart Crenshaw. Green Onions i) Old Slave Continued from IB Not all the stories about the house are grim.

One of the most popular is that Abraham Lincoln visited Hickory Hill. For years, Jeniza Gates Harrelson told her grandchildren she danced with Lincoln at a ball at the house, while Crenshaw's own niece, Mariah Crenshaw Wallace, told her family Lincoln rode in on a horse to see her uncle. Critics say Lincoln would never stay in the house of a slave holder, especially one who belonged to an opposing political party. The women who said they danced with Lincoln in the Old Slave House might as wrell have said they were dancing with Elvis," John Y. Simon, professor of library affairs at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, said.

Originally, the visit was assumed to have taken place in Carports Garages wmmt a.
