Henry Walton Bibb was born in, or near, New Castle in 1815. Bibb was the son of Kentucky State Senator, James Bibb. He grew up to be a respected writer, editor and newspaper publisher.
It should have been a typical success story. Not so for Henry Bibb.
He was the illegitimate mulatto son of a slave and a white man born in the early 19th century. He, of course, was not acknowledged as Bibb’s son and grew up a slave.
