Hello, I have been reading about family members invovled in Aaron Burr's Spanish Conspiracy to create his own country in the letters of Kentucky attorney general Joseph Hamilton Daviess to Thomas Jefferson in 1806. Daviess was both prosecutor and spy for Jefferson. One letter states Owings murderers were taken to Ft. Washington - I would like to know more about this - who were they? Also Cassandra C.D. Owings Van Pradelles was wife of Benedict Van Pradelles who in 1808 Jefferson named Registrar of New Orleans. Benedict died of Yellow Fever in 1808. In 1809 Cassandra opened a boarding house. In April of 1809 top conspirator generals Wilkinson and Sam Hopkins were staying at the boading house posting cryptic newspaper messages. Cassandra disappeared between August and December 1813 from New Orleans. I now am wondering if she also was not murdered. She had sent her children back to Baltimore, she's not listed on any passenger ship and her shipping trunks were not packed. Any insight to this would be greatly appreciated.
