Black Wolf and a group of Shawnee Indians
attacked militia captain James Moore's nearby
home on 14 July 1786 during a campaign to deter
white settlement of the Ohio Valley region
after the American Revolution. They killed
Moore, children Alexander, Rebecca, and William,
and servant John Simpson. Six others were
captured and taken toward Ohio. Children John
and Margaret died the journey. Moore's
wife, Martha. and daughter Jane were killed
near Chillicothe, Ohio. Daughter Mary and
Martha Evans were sold near Detroit and were
later rescued. Sons James, captured by Shawnee
two years earlier and Joseph, absent that day,
returned to live in this valley.
