Title A Short Accounting of Troubles and Trials with the Indians
Description with him every day. He had killed two rabbits the day before, and I had them cooking for his supper when the word came that he was killed. We thought they were killed in the morning. We heard the reports of the guns that killed the two men, but we paid no attention to them as we had heard the same the day before when my husband killed the two rabbits. Soon after dinner a young man went up to the mill for some flour. There was no one to be found around the mill. It was running with all the speed it had, but no wheat in the hopper. He knew something was wrong. He came to town as fast as he could come and told the condition he had found the mill in They found their bodies a short distance from the mill. The cattle were also killed with poison arrows. The Indians were in ambush waiting for an opportunity to do their work. Mr. Mills, the man that was with my husband, did not belong to our church. He was stripped naked and so was my husband, all excepting his garments. There was not a hole in his garments. I was not allowed to see him as he was so badly disfigured in his face The Indians told us after they tried to make peace with some of our people that Mr. Warner fought desperately and did kill one Indian. The Indians would come to our house with my husband's gun. One day two of them came to our door, and one had my husband's necktie on his bald neck and the other one had his pocket rule that he always carried with him and also his penknife which was very useful, containing a number of articles such as a button hook, and ear spoon. They had broken them all up and were showing these things to my father and mother at the table. I grabbed the knife and started for them. My father saw me rise from the table, and he caught me in his arms and carried me out of the room. This happened only a short time before my son was born. He was born six months after his father was killed. My father said I would never be any whiter when I was dead than I was when he took hold of me to carry me out of their presence It was more than I could stand to see the black imps with my husband's things 42
