    DAVID'S FATHER MOVED TO MADISON CO., KY IN 1778 -- WHERE WAS SAMUEL BETWEEN 1778 AND 1792??-- DETERMINING THIS, MAYBE BY EARLY TAX RECORDS, MAY HELP US WITH THE DILEMA OF WHO DAVID'S FATH ER IS.

    Both Samuel and his son Robert [born 1763] Gordon were in Madison Co, KY in 1792, as listed o n the Madison Co. KY Tax payers list in 1792 [listed are Richard, Robert and Samuel Gordon] . I have not found them earlier. [OUR DAVID'S FATHER MOVED TO MADISON CO., KY IN 1778 -- Det erminining who was in Madison Co by Early Tax Records, may help with the dilema of who David' s Father is]. [The other possibility for research may be a land search for Madison Co. KY t o see what Gordon's purchased land about 1778 and not any indications of where they may hav e come from or relationships mentioned, a further investigation in land records may also sho w when the land was sold, and if it was part of an estate that may list David as an heir].

    Probably Related to, but not a child of the Samuel found in Madison Co. Histories Collection s and (http://www.rootsweb.com/~tngiles/charts/gordona.htm) as some believe..

    History of Boone County, Missouri, Ramfree Press, Cape Girardeau, Mo. page 873 - "David Gordo n was a native of North Carolina who emigrated to Kentucky in an early day, and by shrewd man agement and energy, laid the foundation of a considerable fortune. After establishing himsel f in business, in Madison county (KY), he married Miss Jane Boyle...In 1826, David Gordon res olved to emigrate to Columbia, Missouri, ..."

    Francis Pike & Midge Crawford, Whatever Happened to the David Gordon Cabin. "David Gordon wa s born on Jan 9, 1770 in North Carolina., moving with his parents to Madison Co., Ky in 1778 . at the age of 25, he married Mary Jane Boyle. The couple had 15 children." (Note: 1 1 children were named in his will)

    "Gordon home on historic list" by Debby Applegate, Missourian staff writer. "In 1818, Davi d Gordon came to Columbia ,(Boone Co,Mo) then part of Louisiana Territory, and claimed severa l acres of land on either side of what was later named Hinkson Creek., He built a log cabin , left his son James behind and returned to Kentucky. Gordon returned to Columbia in 1823 t o build the Gordon mansion."

    Francis Pike & Midge Crawford, Whatever Happened to the David Gordon Cabin. David Gordon wa s born on Jan 9, 1770 in North Carolina. "Record show that Gordon was one of the 35 pioneers , mostly from Kentucky, who orgainized the Smithton co. and traveled in 1818 to the Franklin , Howard Co., land office to buy 2700 government acres, most of it in the present-day Columbi a area. Shortly after this purchase, Gordon returned to Kentucky, leaving his cabin and far m under the care of his son, James Madison Gordon. At this time, Congressional debades wer e held on the status of slavery in the new state of Missouri and Gordon decided to wait on th e outcome of the debates before bringing his slaves to Missouri. In 1821, Congress voted t o permit slavery in the new state, and in that year Gordon brought his wife, all of his young er children, 26 slaves and considerable livestock to Missouri, crossing three large rivers, t he Ohio, the Mississippi and the Missouri."

    "Gordon Manor a memo of past" by Mary Thorsby "Gordon moved his wife and their 15 childre n - nine boys and six girls and his 26 slaves from Kentucky to Missouri in 1822."
