Also in the Gazette are reports of troubles with the Indians. Here is an example: "Lexington, January 23 We are just now informed, that on Saturday the 16th Inst. the Indians killed or took 2 men and a lad near the mouth of Lee's creek, on the Ohio. There were 6 whites in company, 3 of which escaped, but are not able to inform whether those missing are killed or taken, the last they saw of them the Indians had them prisoners. And about Thursday or Friday last, they killed two men some where on the waters of the hanging Fork of Dick's River, who had carried a number of horses to a Cane-break, for range." The Kentucky Gazette Vol III No. XXII, Saturday, January 23, 1790, p. 1
Some if the issues contain what are called "anecdotes". Here is one that might bring a smile: "A Recruiting officer, during the late war, had orders, not to remain more than three days in a place; he being somewhat profane, was told by a gentleman present, that for such wickedness he would certainly go to Hell - how long shall I stay there (replied the officer) to all eternity returned the other, that is wrong returned the son of Mars, for I have Gen. Washington's orders not to remain more than three days in one place." Anecdote in June 21, 1790, p 2 (VOL III NUMB XLIII)
Nancy Ann Bache was born in Lexington in February 1790. I am looking for references to the Bach or Buchanan family in that time period. So far, I have not found anything, but it will take me a while to get through this and some other periodicals of the time.
