Indians at Clark's Run
The following data is extracted from David and Margaret Mitchell Genealogy.
That this new country was not entirely rid of Indians when the new settlers came to it, Mr. Laughead relates the following: "When I was about two years old, father was called to help to suppress an Indian invasion in the North part of the State (War of 1812). Occasionally some friendly Indians had visited the neighborhood, but when Indians get on the war path, it is hard to tell who are friends and who are enemies. Mother was left with me and an infant sister. About sunset one evening two lone Indians passed near the door and camped not far from the cabin. With the charge on hand she could not flee to a neighbor's, but must stay and comfort herself with the hope that they were friendly Indians. A large dog was her only guard. Some time in the night the dog commenced a terrible having and got exceedingly fierce, bounding against the door with great force, which, however, was well barred. Mother said I fell prostrate on the floor in alarm, which added to her consternation. Whatever it was that had roused the dog it soon betook itself away, but Isaac, in his after life, never got over the dread of Indians.
