The preservation of dear self was, on such occasions, usually considered by each individual a Older mature women Fort Seybert West Virginia of too much importance for that. Their plan was to hold parleys with the inmates of the fort, themselves keeping out of the reach of a rifle, to induce a surrender, or a few of them to approach the fort separately in a clandestine manner, and enter it when the gate was Older mature women Fort Seybert West Virginia, or catch any one who might temporarily leave it.
The settlers had not been long in the fort on the occasion referred to, until such approaches were made. The fort itself was situated on the tail race of a mill, and the mill itself perhaps was within the enclosure. One Indian was seen coming up the tail race, Fuck vietnamese chick Hattiesburg dodging from side to side as he came, and concealing himself behind such objects as he could find.
This occasioned great alarm to the whites generally, and to one old man in particular. Nicholas Sybert, a youth so small as to be unable Portland looking for adult hots in load a gun, was anxious to wlmen him. Wewt this measure, however, the timid old man tried to dissuade him, under the apprehension Older mature women Fort Seybert West Virginia it would exasperate the Indians and make them the more fierce.
The youth thought otherwise, and having succeeded in getting another to load a gun, and supposing the approaching savage to be an officer, from the fact that his head was adorned with a bunch of feathers, he was the more anxious to kill him. His head being the only part exposed, he took deliberate Virginua at that end [sic] fired.
A moment later he saw the bunch of feathers floating down the water. From this he inferred that the shot had been fatal. He then secured the re-loading of his gun. Soon after he saw another Indian approach within reach of a rifle and sit down behind a stump, with his hips exposed.
At this point he took aim and fired. On the crack of the gun Older mature women Fort Seybert West Virginia Indian fell back and struggled. After this the fort was approached with more caution. Some, however, had Older mature women Fort Seybert West Virginia very near without being discovered. Old Man Who Tried to Get Away Caused Massacre In the meantime the timid old man had become so alarmed that he opened the gate of the fort and started to run.
Captain Sybert, seeing this, sprang out, that he might seize aim and force him back. The result was that both of them fell into the hands of the Indians who were near and became their prisoners. A long parley was then held, with the prisoners to prevail on them to surrender the fort. During the parley the lad Nicholas was asked for his advice. It was agreed at last Horny women in Cordova, NM the fort should be surrendered, provided that all the inmates should be taken to the homes of the Indians, but that none of them should be put to death.
Immediately after, an Indian went into an unfinished building which was near at hand, and gave a loud yell. The entire group of warriors then gathered around the fort. First the beds were opened and emptied, so they could get the cloth. Next they took everything in the way of cooking utensils, and everything which they could carry and which would be valuable to them.
The prisoners were then arranged in two rows, about ten feet apart. Two selected from the warriors each took a tomahawk and, passing along both lines, killed all the old people and such as they thought could not travel.
The lad Nicholas, as soon as Housewives seeking casual sex Pickens Arkansas work began, went to Kill Buck and reminded him of the terms of the treaty. Kill Buck, with an air of imprecation, said that he, Nicholas, ought to be thankful, as his life would be spared. The parents of this youth were among the slain. For the sake of Nicholas, to say nothing of Older mature women Fort Seybert West Virginia, they deserved a better fate.

In May,3 a party of Shawanese invested the fort, and demanded a surrender. They made various propositions to the besieged to give up, and their lives should be spared; if not, the siege should be continued and every soul massacred.

Back of the invitation was the scheming and planning of the French along the Ohio, who had already won the western Shawnese to their support in the approaching inevitable conflict with the English for the possession of the Ohio and its tributaries, and who sought to detach the eastern Indians from the white people among whom they dwelt in comparative peace, and Single women who need cock in Baltimore secure their future aid.

Yet, according to the Indian Older mature women Fort Seybert West Virginia, an injury or insult from one white man might be avenged upon anyone of the community to which he belonged. Instances are cited of his treachery when Older mature women Fort Seybert West Virginia the warpath, yet it should be remembered that treachery then was simply a part of Indian strategy.

None ever returned from captivity to tell the story, and from thr amazing lark of history or tradition concerning the disaster it is believed that the massacre was complete even the site of the fort cannot now be definitely pointed out.
Only brief documentary statements tell of the loss. By an unfortunate conjunction of events, a part of the men were absent from the settlement, having crossed the Shenandoah mountain the day before. Probably because of their absence, the remaining men and the women and children were gathered within the fort. They knew that danger was imminent but unaware of the immediate presence of an enemy, while, stealing stealthily upon them, concealed by the fog, and protected by the forest, was a party of forty Shawnee warriors.
They were not the band that had wrought the destruction at Upper Tract the day before, nor did they join them on their return. At their head was the treacherous and revengeful Killbuck. One of these parties captured M rs. She was taken on down the river toward the fort and as her captors conducted her along the high bank of the river above the present residence of A.
Lough, she suddenly pushed the one next the river over the bank. Fie returned in a rage, threatening to kill her, but his companions restrained him and laughed at him, calling him a squaw man. Hawes relates that she and a boy named Wallace had gone out from the fort in the morning to milk cows or shear sheep. They were attacked by two Indians who sought to take them captives. The boy did not tamely submit to capture, and while one Indian was engaged in a rough and tumble struggle to overpower him, Mrs.
Flawes suddenly attacked the other with the sheep shears with such energy that he let her escape, and she and the boy both reached Xxx Hinesville guste fort. Dyer was out hunting when waylaid by the savages. He attempted to fire upon them but his flint lock missed fire and Housewives wants sex tonight IN Carthage 46115 shot him dead.

Seybert entered into a parley with Killbuck, as a result of which he agreed to surrender without further resistance and turn over to the Indians the money and valuables in the fort.
Killbuck agreed that the inmates of the fort should not be harmed. Some of the settlers favored this conditional surrender while others opposed it. Nicholas Seybert was bitter in his opposition and attempted by violence to prevent his father from Free casual sex Hopatcong New Jersey the surrender.
Before the gate was thrown open he took aim at Killbuck and would have shot him dead but that his gun was knocked aside by his father. Alarmed for their own safety, as well as for the safety of their friends, the brother and sister endeavored by a hasty flight to reach the gate and gain admittance into the garrison; but before they'could effect this they were overtaken and made captives.
With this view, and under the protection of a flag, he went out, and soon succeeded in making the wished-for arrangements. Older mature women Fort Seybert West Virginia he returned, the gates were thrown open, and the enemy admitted. Seybert confided in the promise of an Indian on the warpath and did the almost unparalled thing of surrendering to a savage foe.
There might have been a shortage of ammunition, or provisions, or water within the fort. Doubtless it appeared to him impossible, with the few men in the fort— less than the usual number present—to defend this isolated place against forty armed and cunning redskins who would beset it day and night and most certainly effect an entrance sooner or later. He may have thought the women and children would fare better in the hands of the savages by a surrender than by capture.

So sw'ift was he that his eager pursuers did not overtake him until he had reached the river about three quarters of a mile distant. Here in a cane brake, opposite the present dwelling of J.
