Of the Black Hawk warriors of Pulaski County, the same authority says: "In 1832, the celebrated Indian chief, Black Hawk, made war on the settlements in the northern part of the State. Promptly a company was raised in our county by Col. Webb, which went to the scene of action. Of that company none are alive but the Captain, Thomas C. Kenedy, John Carnes and Alfred Lackey."
