Bolan Savage and James Savage - On yesterday morning about 10 o’clock, a
part of Indians,
some 12 or 15 in number, appeared at Mr. Bolan Savage’s who lives about
four miles
southwest of this place. Mr. Savage, in defending his family from the
attacking party,
was killed, one of his children, a boy, wounded, and two other small boys
captured by
the Indians. The party then went about a mile and attacked James Savage, a
brother of
the former, killing him, wounding one of his little sons, and capturing a
small girl of the
family. The Indians were armed with six-shooters. Both of the Savages were
killed by
pistol shots. As soon as the alarm spread throughout the country, a party
started in pursuit,
and on last accounts, they were pushing the Indians very close. As the
latter had a large lot of
horses and the three children they captured, which would necessarily retard
their travel. It is
hoped they can be overtaken and summarily punished. The two Savages, both,
leaving families
in most distressing circumstances.
