Among the killed was Sally, a daughter of Peter Livingston, one white and one Negro child were scalped but did not die. Elizabeth, another child of Peter Livingston and Susan Livingston, a daughter-in-law, were captured by the Indians and carried away to the Ohio River and held as prisoners for several months. Susan escaped from the Indians and made her way home, or as the story goes, she reached the top of a mountain in sight of her home and fell exhausted. She was found a few hours later, almost dead, and was carried home and finally recovered. John Benge is said to have had a trail across Cumberland Mountain.
