Kentuckiana Genealogy: County: Breckinridge Co., Kentucky: Jeremiah NORTON's daughter Susan. Hung herself?

when we went to visit folks in Breckinridge County KY my daddy would pass this house then tell a story of how Col Norton's daughter hung herself there. I never was interested because I didn't know Col Norton or his daughter. Now daddy is passed on and I know who the Norton's are now and want to know more about the story but can't find out much. I know she married my ancestor Henry Claycomb, Jr. I know she was pregnant and had a daughter but my notes have her dying 3 days BEFORE the baby was born. the baby lived a while but then died. Henry then married Susan's sister Sarah and my line formed out of that union. Does anyone have any information on this story or more on Jeremiah Norton. Stories I have heard have shown him to be quite interesting and I would love to know more. Pam at Pamelamix@aol.com
