Kidnapping
On the 20th February last, a man calling himself Ballard, came to Circleville, called on a black family and induced them to let him have one of their sons, about 9 years old, to live with him, saying that he had a contract on the canal in that neighborhood. Since which they were seen at Zanesville, travelling eastward, and fears are entertained that he intends to sell the boy into Slavery. The boy's name was John Cardift. - Ohio Repository
