Fate of the Paxton Boys

     
 In an ironic twist of fate, one of the leaders of the Paxton Boys that massacred the Conestogas in 1763 - Lazarus Stewart - was killed fighting combined forces of the Iroquois Nation and British Loyalists in the Battle of Wyoming fifteen years later on July 3, 1778.



Additionally, several of my ancestors on the Williams side of the family met their fate on that day as well.

    
I have one more post in mind to wrap-up my annual tribute
to the Susquehannock (Conestoga) tribe.

Battle of Wyoming Monument - Wyoming, PA.

Back in a day or two.
