If the logs have not "rolled" you can find out in the Windows Security Log of the DC that was used to create the group on.

Yeah, this account was created back in 2004.  I also know that it was created by a member of the Domain Admin's group.  However, I don't know which user who was apart of this group.  I was hoping there was some magic place this was kept.  From what I have learned that it would only be logged in The Windows Security Log if that property was sepcifically enabled.

Your are correct that the property needs to be enabled however it is by default. However, I am sure that from 2004 you won't have logs unless you store them and even that is a long shot considering it's around 9 years ago.  

Unless someone else has some "magic" they know of, I think the information is no longer available.  We use Active Administrator from ScriptLogic however we have don't even store information that long.
