The Indian Massacre on Kerr's Creek The Story of the Bloody Tragedy as Related by the de-ceudaiits of those who Suffered. Bv Rev. Samuel Brown. How soon do the exciting scenes of a past generation pass I into oblivion amongst the living! Who, even the ritizens of Rockbridge, as they pass down the beautiful Valley of Kerr's creek, know or tlnnk anything of that dark and bloody day, more than of the Valley of Kerr's Creek. They could see the smoke oi the white man's* abode, and mark the encroachment upon what they claimed as their hunting ground given tliem by the "Great Spirit." With passions thus excited, they were prepared foir l>l)e deeds of Has Jamestown a dentist? Yes. What is his name? Dr. O.E.Steveson. Where did he graduate? At the Indiana Dental College.

Not knowing «hat it it meant, they were alarmed, and running home told what they had seen; but it was not thought of much unlil after the massacre, when it »va.s believed that the person seen was one of their spies, sent to examine the condition of the settlement. The party of Indians which separated from the main body at, or near, Oli Millboro', in Bath county, made their way directly over Mill Mountain, ^bout two miles north of where the turnpike now crosses it, at a low place, still called the "Indian trail," and falling over the waters of Bra?ton's Run, theycros«-ed the North Mountain where the road crosses it leading from T<exington to t?he Alum Springs, and where » large heap of stonee isBtlll to be seen, touching ti\e road, evidently put thereby the Indians at some time,probably as 0 T r^l101 r' between their tribes. 01 J BWBllL I do not think it a stretch of im-! agination t o suppose that these inQpninp i painted v irriors made a pause lUaUUiUU p^g »tones, per- hays the land-inarK of their fathers .

Harpsew live. Cunningham was from homo and his wife was killed, and daughter about ten years of age was stricken down with the tomahawk. Thinking her to be dead, they scalped her. She revived after they had left and lived; but was destined again to fall into their hands, on the second invasion two years afterward, when she was taken a prisoner and carried to their towns in Ohio, where they put on her head what they gave her to understand Wfts her own «OHlp, and with great mirth and rejoicing danced around her. She was afterwards redeemed and brought back by her friends, and lived for forty years, and eventually died from the effect of the scalping. Her head had never properly healed, and turned to a cancerous affection. These strange €HAHT SMITH has a rebtau^ your pati^îiagé. Candies, Ci^rs Etc. - m-i^ J. C. SMITH AT LAW AND NOTARY PUBLIO.
