Booth's Creek, pp. 32, 49, 200. In 1778 as James Booth and Nathaniel Cochran worked in a field on Booth's Creek, shots fired by Indians killed Booth and caused Cochran, who was slightly injured, to flee to safety. Within a few days in the same area, William Gruncy was fired on and killed, and JAMES OWENS, a youth of 16, while traveling from Simpson's Creek to Booth Creek, stopped to mend a saddle girth that had given away, and both he and the horse were killed from ambush. Ft. Powers, located about 1 mile north of the town of Bridgeport, on Simpson's Creek, in Harrison Co. (Cook)--now in Simpson District. In 1778 JAMES OWENS left the fort on horseback; when he had gone a short distance, his saddle girth gave way and he dismounted to mend it. While thus engaged, he and his horse were both killed by Indians in ambuscade.

Re: Indian Blood Vol. 1 - Tanacharisson Posted by: ROBERT OWENS (ID *****3477) Date: August 27, 2003 at 02:49:22 In Reply to: Re: Indian Blood Vol. 1 - Tanacharisson by Phyllis Blickensderfer of 16610 Chief Tanacharisson DIED October 01, 1754 It appears from letters of John Harris, written to Governor Morris, that an Indian named Half King, also called Tanacharisson, died at his house on the night of the 1st of October, 1754. Rupp says that "he had his residence at Logstown, on the Ohio, fourteen miles below Pittsburgh, on the opposite side. George Washington visited him in 1753, and desired him to relate some of the particulars of a journey he had shortly before made to the French Commandant at Fort Duquesne." We find this note among the votes of Assembly, 1754: "Dec. 17, Post Meridian, 1754. - The Committee of Accounts reported a balance of L10 15s. 14d. due to the said John Harris for his expenses, and L5 for his trouble, &c., in burying the Half-King and maintaining the sundry Indians that were with him." It may be interesting to know that the Half King was buried near the first John Harris at the foot of the mulberry tree.

He is connected to my line of Pribble/Prebble but have not discovered just how. In his will of 1836 he left his farm in Brown County Ohio to a nephew, John Pribble, who is a direct ancestor of mine. I believe Gabriel was probably married to a Pribble but haven't found the record. Ohio. State of Ohio Brown County / CP On the 2nd day of May 1833 personally appeared before the Judges of the Court of Common Pleas, in and for the County of Brown came Gabriel Eakins, sometimes called Gabriel Acron, a resident of Lewis Township in the County of Brown and State of Ohio, aged seventy four years, who being first duly sworn according to law, doth on his oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the provision made by the act of Congress, passed June 7th 1832. That he enlisted in the Army of the United States on the 26th day of July in the year 1778, with( David Owens Captain) on ten miles in Pennsylvania with four others and marched from ten miles to Fort Pitt, who at that time was commanded by Col. Gibson we joined the 13th Virginia Regiment commanded by Col Gibson and the company to which this affiant belonged was commanded by one Ferrill in whose company this affiant served about six months. This affiant went under a Leftenant of the independent company commanded by Capt Heth,? up the Allegheny river in order to intercept the passage of Indians that was supposed to have crossed the river into the settlement and was absent about 8 days, but saw nothing of them. The next expedition this affiant went on under Capt. Springer to For Liganeer to relieve the inhabitants from the inroads making on them by the Indians, but before we reached there the Indians had left. We ranged from fort Liganeer towards the Allegheny river, and was absent a month but saw no Indians during our absence. The next expedition was up the Monongahely under Sergant Goodin for flour and whiskey and was detained by [low water?] for about four weeks before we reached fort Pitt. This affiant states after this last return he remained at fort Pitt until he was discharged. This affiant at the time of enlistment was a citizen of Washington County, Pennsylvania. This affiant served about six months in the 13th Virginia Regiment when the company to which this affiant belonged and who was commanded by Ferrill was divided and a part attached to the 8th Pennsylvania Regiment commanded by Col. Broadhead and a part to 9th Virginia Regiment to which last this affiant was attached commanded by Col. Gibson. Whilst this affiant belonged to the 13th Virginia Regiment Co. Gibson was called to Philadelphia, and command was taken in his absence by Robert Beall Capt. from whom this affiant received a written furlo of absence for 15 days which is herewith filed as a part of this declaration. This affiant enlisted for the term of one year, and at the expiration of said year he was discharged by Col. Gibson, which discharge this affiant placed in the hand of one James Neal for purposes specified in said Neal's receipt herewith filed as a part of this declaration. He hereby relinquishes any claim whatever to a pension or an annuity except the present, and he declares that his name is not on the pension roll of any agency in any state.

Owen Owens being some distance behind them, made his escape to the fort. John Owens the younger, who had been to the pasture field for the plough horses, heard the guns, but not suspecting any danger to be near, rode forward towards the cornfield. As he was proceeding along the path by a fence side, riding one and leading another horse, he was fired at by several Indians, some of whom afterwards rushed forward and caught at the bridle reins; yet he escaped unhurt from them all.) {THE OWENS FAMILY TREE 07 26 03.FTW] CHRONICLES OF BORDER WARFARE CHAPTER XII-JOHN OWENS ] © This electronic version is created & copyrighted by the Hacker's Creek Pioneer Descemdamts, Inc., Route 1 Box 238, Jane Lew, WV 26378 - 1997.
