    Excerpt: “ Martha married Captain James Moore, and they settled in Abbs Valley in Tazewell County, just to the west of where the town of Pocahontas is now. In 1785, their oldest son James was taken captive by a Shawnee war party led by Black Wolf and was later sold to a French Canadian family named Ariome.The same chief led a raid on the Moore farm the following year and killed most of the family. Martha, four of her children and Mattie Evans, a visiting cousin were taken captive." From Carolyn Szabad
