      with his family, consisting of his wife and four children....
      Mabee had gone to the new home with his wife and two younger
      children, leaving his older children, John and Polly to take
      care of their Fairfield home. The raiders ([Indian and Tories]
      scattered over the Fairfield settlements and two Indians who
      knew the Mabee's, ran to their home to kill Mr. Mabee. They
      found John cutting potatoes for cattle. He called to his sister

      struck down with a tomahawk and scalped. Polly hid herself in
      some cornstalks and escaped death and capture."
