Killed by Indians

There were numerous attacks on settlements in southwest Virginia during the period of Indian Hostilities (1774-1794). Many records and stories exist recounting these attacks. Researchers in southwest Virginia genealogy commonly refer to "KBI" and "CBI" as a shorthand notation for "Killed by Indians" or "Captured by Indians".
