Found one reference to a William Buckhannon who was supposed to return some horses to another man, but didn't. No Bach or Back references found. One interesting news item at about the time Nancy Ann Bach was born:
"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

Anecdote (May 19, 1792, Kentucky gazette, p 4)
"It was a custom with Benjamin Lay, to visit at times the houses of worship belonging to other religious societies than his own. He would not go within the walls, but stood at the door. He one day attended at Christ Church, where the late dr. Jenny was preaching on the subject of the day of judgement. After service, while the congregation were coming out of the church, Benjamin was very desirous to know from those who passed him, how the sheep were to be distinguished from the goats at the last day. A facetious gentleman, whom he applied himselfto, took him by the beard, and giving it a good shake, replied,'by their beards Benjamin'".
