"the lady who is the subject of this story, is named experience bozarth. she lives on a creek called dunkard creek, in the south-west corner of this county. about the middle of march last, two or three families, who were afraid to stay at home, gathered to her house and there stayed---looking on themselves to be safer than when all scattered about at their own houses. "on a certain day, some of the children thus collected came running in from play, in great haste, saying there were ugly red-men. one of the men in the house stepped to the door, where he recived a ball in the side of the brest, which caused him to fall back into the house. the indian was immediately in on him, and engaged with another man who was in the house. the man tossed the indian on a bed, and called for a knife to kill him. (observe, these were all the men that were in tne house.) now mrs. bozarth appears the only help, who not finding a knife at hand, took up a axe that lay by, and with one blow cut out the brains of the indian. at that instant, (for all was instantaneous,) a second indian entered the door, and shot the man dead who was engaged with the indian on the bed. mrs. bozarth turned to this second indian,and with her axe gave him several large cuts, some which let his entrails appear. he bawled out, murder, murder. on this, sundry other indians, (who had hitherto been out, murder, murder. on this, sundry other indians, (who had hitherto been fully employed, killing some children out of doors,) came rushing to his relief; the head of one of these mrs. bozarth clave in two with her axe, as he stuck it in the door, which laid him flat on the ground. another snatched hold of the wounded, bellowing fellow, and pulled him out of doors; and mrs bozarth, with the assistance of the man who was first shot in the door and by this time a little recovered, shut the door after them, and fastened it, where they kept garrison for several days.
