Gall, John F., & David K. Webb, eds. The massacre of the Wigton family: With an account of the trial of Samuel Mohawk, the murderer. Chillicothe, OH: Privately Published, 1934. 16mo (15.2 cm, 6"). 8 pp. $50.00
The "probable . . . last Indian massacre in Pennsylvania," by Seneca tribe Indian Samuel Mohawk, is detailed. On June 30th, 1843 in Butler County, PA, Mary McQuiston Wigton and her five children were murdered by the alcoholic Mohawk. An angry mob tracked him down and turned him over to the authorities; he was eventually hanged for his crimes. Despite Mohawk's confession, there is still speculation (not in this item) that James Wigton, Mary's husband, who was reportedly retrieving a horse at another farm, was guilty of the murders and framed Mohawk. A sad story.
