Escape of Elimas

Elimas, after an attempted escape in 1803 and being caught, was accepted back into Bullittsburg Baptist Church in August, 1806. Within just a few months, he had “absconded” again from John Hall, his slaveholder. This time, it appears he did not get caught. Hall’s tax list shows the loss of one enslaved adult. No further mention is made of Elimas in church records. Minutes of the Proceedings of the Bullittsburg Baptist Church. Microfilm. Boone County Public Library, Burlington, KY.
