Clark Campaign 82
John D. Shane interview with Josiah Collins, ca. 1840s; 2: <The next day, 80 men of us, were sent on horse back to the town where Mrs. McFall had resided. The indians before we got there, had evacuated, and taken from the town every thing but a few bags of taughsemenoune. In our absence from the army, the indians appeared on the opposite side of the River from the town, & shook their tomahawks. The nest day, Capt. McCracken, one of the horsemen, turned out his horse to browse, & he went outside of the lines. He pursued his horse in the enening to hunt him up. He himself had gotten outside of the ines, and called to a sentinel to know if he had seen any thing of a black horse. A man behind some large fallen timbers cried here, come here is your horse. McC. turned quick, & wheeled quick to run from him, and the man fired and struck him in the arm. It was supposed the bullet was poisoned,, The arm mortified, and we buried him the 5th day. Brot 8 squaws home to the falls of the Ohio.> 12CC71
