Sometime in March 1857, an enslaved man and child escaped from near Columbia in Boone county, Missouri. The editors of the Hannibal Messenger wondered aloud if "they ran off, were persuaded off, or stolen," but suspected that their flight had something to do with a spate of recent horse thefts, and concluded they had been "decoyed off."
