I am looking for anything on this Massacre by the Indians. This happened June 1794. All of the White men were killed on a boat that was going to Mississippi. My 4th great-grandfather was William Scott and he was the Uncle to James and John Pettigrew what were also on the boat. There were 3 other men that were on the boat that were killed also that day, Mr. Tate, Mr. Young and Mr. Steward. The 3 women and several children and some of their Slaves were put in a boat and were allowed to float on down the river to New Orleans.
I would like to hear more on this story and where were the men buried.
They took this case to the 8th Congress, 2nd Session, No. 160. I would like to see the paper work on this and any other court papers. Who were the women and children and who did they belong to??????
