Around the spring nearby, was perpetrated, on April 20, 1781, the massacre of 20 Indians by Col. Daniel Broadhead's army of 300. This slaying was committed following destruction, the same day, of the two villages, Goschachgunk, (Coshocton) and Indaochaic, formerly Lichtenau, the Moravian mission. The first act of this incident was the stealthful slaying, by tomahawk, of a chief who came across the river as a peace emissary, by the Indian fighter, Lewis Wetzel. The night before, 16 warrior captives had been taken south of Coshocton, bound, slain by tomahawk and scalped.
