HTTBBUBOH DESCENDANTS OP THE FA
It i 9 probable there are but few per
sons who kuow anything of the histo
ry of Western Pennsylvania who have
not read the terrible story of the suf
ferings and tortures of Massy Harbi
son, but as there may be many who do
not and more perhaps who have read
her history years ago and since let it
slip their memories, it might be well
in this connection to give a brief syn
opsis of the many horrible tortures to
which this heroic woman was sub
Her story is briefly this : "Massy
Harbison, or more properly speaking,
Jane Harbison, was the wife
of a spy under General St. Clair, and
she with her husband—when he was
at home—occupied a house which was
situated near what is now known as
McKain station, about twentv-six
miles up the Allegheny V alley Rail
road. Early in the morning of May
22, 1T92, while her husband was absent
the house was entered by a large party
of Seneca Indians, and Massy Har
bison, who was still in bed with her
infant child, was compelled to go
with them. Two other children some
what older than the first were also
pulled out of bed. The painted mon-
Bters then ransacked the house, and,
after taking all the plunder they
wanted, they destroyed everything
else, and then took up their march,
after killing one man in the blockhouse,
near by, and wounding another. One
of her children, a boy of about three
years of age, began to cry through
fright, when one of the merciless,
blood-thirsty demons took him by the
heels and dashed his brains out
against the door sill; after which the
scalp 'of the helpless innocent was torn
from his battered head with as much
exultation as if the victim of the mur
derous wretches had been a powerful
warrior slain in battle.
Then the unfortunate woman, with
her babe in her arms and her other
remaining child, was forced to go with
After marching for a while they
fHtmw to the mouth of the Kiskimine
tas river, and while descending the
hank the horse on which one of the
savages was riding, with the oldest
surviving child, fell and rolled over the
bank. The little one was somewhat
injured and began to cry, whereupon
one of the red fiends became exasperat
ed and clove the head of the little one
with his tomahawk, after which he
scalped him. But to give a descrip
tion of all the horrors which the heroic
woman was compelled to endure would
take up too much space, and would be
an unnecessary repetition of facts
which may be within the memory of
the reader. It is therefore only ne
cessary to state that she escaped on
the second day of her captivity, and
after being unsuccessfully pursued and
narrowly escaping capture, she dis
covered herself to white frontiersmen
on the sixth day after her capture and
was taken back to her friends. She
had wandered down to a spot near
where Sandy creek is now located, part
of the way carrying her infant in the
folds of one of her garments which she
held between her teeth. Her feet and
hands were literally filled with thorns,
and she was so fearfully emaciated as
to be unrecognizable.
The above is the story in brief of the
terrible adventures of Massy Harbi
son, and although many are familiar
with it, there are but few of the num
ber that have the least idea that there
are lineal descendants of Massy Har
bison living in Pittsburgh at the pres
ent time; yet such is the case. One
of her grandchildren is Mr. Mills
Shoup, who resides in Forty-fourth
street, Pittsburgh; another is a lady
named Mrs. Anderson, and there are
still others living in and around the
city, one of them living at Freeport,
where Massy Harbison was buried in
the old graveyard situated on Market
street, in that town. But her grave,
like that of many others whose liveß
have formed part of the history of the
State and Nation, bears not the
slighest tribute to her fame from the
There were also, at last accounts,
two sons Btill living; one named Ben
jamin, who is now in bis eighties, and
said to be a remarkably well preserved
man, and another named John. The
last named is the one, who as an in
fant, she carried with her through all
her peril; and in connection with him
there is a story which is but seldom
seen excepting in the pages of a novel.
When he grew to manhood, he was
so impressed with the fiendish cruel
ties practiced upon his mother and two
brothers that be made vow to work
out a terrible retribution by killing
every painted savage that came in his
Way, and he has devoted his whole
life' to vengeance since. To attain this
object he has followed the Indians as
fast as they were driven toward the
setting sun, his only desire being to
When last heard from he was on
the extreme borders of Kansas still re
lentlessly carrying out his relentless
work of destruction, and if he Btill ex
ists is between eighty and ninety
years of age. To be sure it is probable
that long ere this his vengeful hand
has been stayed by old age or death,
but those who knew of him say that
he was so firm in his resolve that
With his last effort he would deal out
death to the remnants of the race
that tortured his mother and mur
dered his brothers.

We wish to inform the public that we have remodeled our Mill with the
Gradual Reduction System Machinery,
which is well known by Millers to be the best in existence We can say to
Farmers and Producers of wheat that it will be profitable to them
to give us a trial. We claim that we can make a
BETTER ARTICLE OF FLOUR, AND MORE OF IT,
out of the same number of bushels of wheat than any other Mill in the
county, and equal to any first-class Mill in the city, or Western Mills.
The uew Under-running Mill, used for Reminding, bought of Munson & 13r0.,
Utica, N. Y.; the George T. Smith Middlings Purifier, bought
at Jackson, Mich., together with Bolting Cloths,
Reals, Conveyers, &c., suitable for
the Machinery, cannot be
Excelled in the United States
or elsewhere This may seem an exaggeration to some, but we wish the pub
lic to know that we are able to perform all that we publish, as we have given
our machinery a thorough test in the presence of several good Millers and
Millwrights, and it has proven even better than it was guaranteed to do.
We are also remodeling our Mill for
Grinding Oilier Kinds of Grain,
which will be entirely satisfactory to our customers. Farmers wishing to
have their grist home with them the same day, can do so on
short notice. They will thereby save another trip.
WE HAVE ALWAYS ON HAND THE BEST GRAPES OF

This disease like many others is regarded
as incurable. It is not so. If it is taken in
time it is as easily cured as a wart or a corn.
We know very well that it is a fearful disease
and will eat away until it destroys life, that
is if it is neglected, but if it is attended to
when it first makes its appearance, or soon
after, there is no trouble in eradicating it
from the system. Persons will have to be here
during part of the treatment, consequently
there is no use writing to me for information
whether it can be cured without my seeing the
case. I also treat with success, Rupture, Piles,
Fistula, Ulcers, Ulcerated legs, Varicose Veins,
