survived her husband. He was killed when a force of 400 Indians attacked his house, which was a 
fortified garrison, built like a blockhouse with projecting upper story, with loopholes in the walls for
musketry and a stockade about it. It is said his head was severed and put on a pole. Sarah and their 
children escaped with others to the safer settlements. (Nutting Gen., p. 10.)
