Kentuck War
John D. Shane interview with Josiah Collins, ca. 1840s; Was with the Bowman campaign in 1779; 2: <We then came to the Ohio, and crossed at the mouth of the Little Miami, bringing with us 163 horses, besides some other plunder, gotten from a trader's store, which was broken up, &c. Got one squaws gown, in which were 1100 silver broaches. After we had crossed the Ohio, right on the river bank, on this side, the plunder was divided equally among officers and soldiers, according to the agreement under which we had volunteered. We were 2 days there before we got it figured. . . . My brother & myself got a small mare, a yearling colt, and a 3 yr. old mare; but this amounted to L15 more than our share, which we never paid in the world. I swapped the yearling colt for one that we had gotten from the Indians which they had taken from Capt. Hart at Boonesborough the year before. I took him on to Va., and bro't him back, and sold him at Bryant's S[tation] in the summer 1780 to a tory named Lambert, who heard that Cornwallis had taken Charleston, & wanted to go back to Carolina again. Bargained a cow, & 2 pots, & ankilet. The horse kicked and nearly lamed Lambert, which furnished a great joke. Samuel McMullen rode one of the mares, so that she fell, and I had to kill her. The other mare, that fall, the Indians stole back again.> 12CC66
