Captured by the Wyandot Indians in 1762, and carried to the Valley of the Mad River.
He grew to manhood among the Indians, and married the daughter of Chief Tarhe.
He was the first white settler in the Mad River Valley, by nearly half a century.
His fort and cabin were the center of a new civilization, and the town was named in his honor.
His labors and influence for peace in behalf of the whites and his service for his country were recognized and rewarded by the government.
The captivity of the young Virginian, and his union with the daughter of the Wyandots proved a great blessing to the settlers of the valleys of the Mad River, the Miami, and the Great Northwest.
