7/8/1755 Shawnees raided the settlement of Draper's Meadows in the Valley of VA. Kileld several men and took women and children captive. Among these were Mary Draper and Mary Ingles and the Ingles children. Hustled off to the villages north of the Ohio. Indians stopped on the Kanawha to make salt. Ingles somehow ingratiated herself with the chief, was not forced to run the gantlet like all the others. That fall she further cemented Indian trust by making gaudy heel-length strouding shirts for the entire male population of the village. Her children sent off to other villages where they all died. She was taken to Big Bone Lick to make salt. Met an aged PA German woman captive; together they escaped and made their way to VA. They brought first hand information about KY. CLARK3:9-10

DB was a "land scout." <In a somewhat vague arrangement he was acting as land agent or spy for Judge Richard Henderson of North Carolina, as he had done previously along the Watauga, Clinch, and Holston.> Compare with Clark's earlier belief in CLARK2. CLARK3:14
