fy MASSACRE AT LONG CANE. ?j?
Tho following account of the Mas
sacre at Long Cane should prove in
teresting to our readers. We are en

They chose this home in the State
of Pennsylvania, and after living
there a while they decided to move
to Virginia, but they had lived In
Virginia only a short time when they
were driven from their homo by
hordes of ruthless savages lot loose
upon the frontier settlement in con
sequence ol* Braddock's defeat.
The family then moved to Wax
haw, Lancaster county, South Caro
lina. James Calhoun luid four sons,
John. William, Ezekiel and Patrick.
The father and sons wore all plant
ors. At Waxhaw his sons were Im
mediately associated with such men
as William Richardson Davie, (he
dlstlngushed partisan leader of the
Revolution; Andrew Jackson and
Cen. Andrew Picketts, and from this
people came four of the greatest men
of their times: Jackson, Calhoun,
Crawford and Picketts. They were
till Scotch-Irish and Presbyterians ot'
tho strictest sect, and around old
Waxhaw church was formed the set
tlement which gave tone and thought
to the whole tipper country of dis
Old Waxhaw church is thus de
scribed by McCrady: "Unpainted, un
coiled, uncushloned in tho straight
back pews and rough Sunday school
benches, il looked grimly wooden
and desolate." In this settlement
children were taught to road the
Dildo every day and were familiar
with the Word of Cod in the family
and in tho Behool, as well as In tho
chureh. The children and youth re
cited tho Assembly Shorter Catechism
once a week.
Children wore taught to speak the
truth and defend it; to keep a good
conscience and fear God-the founda

The Calhouns decided to make an
other move, and pushed on to the
county which is now Abbeville. They
had been living there but a short
while when tho horrible massacre of
Cong Cane was enacted. William
Calhoun (born 17215) had married
Agnes Long (horn 1733) in 17 ID.
and tit tho time of the massacre they
had the following children: Joseph,
Catherine, Mary and Ann.
Tho settlers at Long Cane number
ed '-."?U souls, mostly women and
children. They had heard of ihe
uprising of thc Cherokee Indians, and
o i thc morning of February 1, iTi?o,
.he entire colony was busy packing
wagons and getting ready to lice to
Tobins Fort, near Augusta, when tho
blood-curdling and savage jvnr
whoop of the Cherokees was btu rd.
The ammunition and guns ot the
men were mostly packed In the
wagons and the horses hitched, or
partially hitched, to the wagons.
Quicker than it (?ikes to tell lt, Wil
liam Calhoun saw his mother, 76
years old, killed by the savages, and
bis little daughters, Catherine and
Mary, scalped and dying, and little
Ann, a baby of two and a half years,
seized and borne oft" hy tho savages.
Panic-stricken and almost paral

from a wagon and placed upon his

np pointed William Calhoun attended
the meeting with a faint hope thal he
might lind his little Ann, who was
now over seven years old. He was
told by her mother that the child had
i scar on tho back of her neck, caused
by a burn. Watching with eagerness
each prisoner that was brought for
ward, he tit last saw his dainty little
girl led out, and instantly recognized
lils lost child, and readily iden!Hied
her by the scar. She could not speak
a word of lOnglish and was just a lit

taken captive she was the baby, hut
on her return home she found that
