Hart, Jack
A slave of Nathaniel Hart and an early settler in Kentucky, Hart was present at Sycamore Shoals (in Tennessee) during the signing of the treaty for the purchase of "Kaintucke" from the Cherokees. He also accompanied Daniel Boone on the Wilderness Trail and was present during the building of Ft. Boonesborough. Hart loaned his rifle at the Battle of Blue Licks and the rifle was lost. On March 24, 2004, the Kentucky Senate adopted a resolution honoring Hart and authorizing the purchase of a flintlock rifle to replace the one that was lost in 1782. For more see SR 191.
