About Rachel Barron

Rachel (Houser), the mother of Nicholas Barron, was captured by the Indians in Morrison’s Cove, Bedford county, during the revolution. Her father and her brother John were killed on the spot at the time of her capture. Martin, another brother, was present, but escaped. The mother was absent at Pittsburgh. Rachel and one of her brothers were taken by the Indians to Detroit. Her brother escaped and returned home after two years’ captivity. Rachel remained seven years, and was then permitted to return home. Her mother paid a man twenty dollars to conduct her from Detroit to Pittsburgh.
