More than 22 years ago, Henry Monger, deceased, being then 66 years old, left Rockingham in company with Charles Monger and William Monger, two of his sons; and Martin Tofflemier and Eve, his wife; and Leonard Crotzer and Mary, his wife; Eve and Mary being two of Henry's daughters, and went to Kentucky. About ten months after, they were all taken by the Indians at Riddle's Station and carried prisoners to Detroit. Shortly after this, Henry died intestate. Answer denies that Henry was never heard of after his capture, because David had received two letters from him since his capture. Henry died about 14 years ago at Detroit, or near there. Henry married about five or six years before he went to Kentucky; he was a blacksmith; had lost use of one hand. Answer speaks of Henry being on his death bed in presence of his wife. Cross bill says Michael Deck is a quack lawyer and common barretor.
