On the morning of Oct. 16, 1755, the Hartman family house was attacked by native Americans. The father and son were killed, and two daughters, Regina and Barbara, were carried off. Much of this account includes qualifiers, such as "...as per tradition". The author states, "The latter story is a tradition, but tradition, which differs only from written history in being oral history, transmitted orally from ancestors to posterity, is often quite as reliable as the written kind."
