    Green County
    This county suffered much from the Indians. Besides burning Greensborough, the savages committed many acts of violence.

    On the 22 of April, 1793, the Indians, numbering thirty-seven, made a sudden attack upon the house of Mr. Richard THRASHER, two children, and a Negro woman. Mrs. THRASHER, to avoid, if possible, the fate with which she was threatened, fled with her infant, five or six weeks old, in her arms, and reached the river. The savages pursued her, shot her through each thigh and the right breast, stabbed her in the left breast with a knife, cut her arm nearly off, and then scalped her. In this dreadful situation she remained until the neighbors could assemble in sufficient numbers to cross the river and pursue the Indians. As the first canoe was crossing, she had strength sufficient to call for assistance. The poor woman was found hanging by a bush, in water nearly up to her chin, her infant at the bottom of the river, a few yards from her. She lived nearly twenty-four hours and when informed by her physician that it was impossible for her to survive much longer, she, with a fortitude that is rarely to be met with called her friends around her, and in a calm manner gave her hand to every one, wishing them a better fate than that which had befallen her and her family. This lady was twenty-five years old, of Highly repectable connections, handsome and well educated.
