with Capt Isaac Taylor in Col. Montgomery’s regiment serving along the Ohio
River from the falls to the mouth and back, and with George Rogers Clark
against the Shawnee on the Big Miami- he says nothing about 1782. This man died

William Baxter- land granted at Harmon
or on Harmon Creek in 1775 and 1776 - not on the
application S6591 of 27 August, 1833 from Brooke Co., Virginia lists four
periods of service: 1) 3 months in 1776 in the militia under Capt. Isaac Cox,
Lt. David Steel served at Holidays Cove on the Ohio River near Harmons Creek now in Brooke Co., Va, 2) when discharged in
Nov., 1776 enlisted for three years with Lt. Daniel Steel under Col. John
Gibson of the 13th Va Line [at Fort Pitt] where he served 8 months
as a Sgt. in Steel’s company, 3) in 1781 he volunteered about l month under
Lieut. Col. Williamson for the expedition to the Delaware towns where they
captured 10-12 indians; and 4) in March, 1781 served
l month under Col. Williamson in the militia where “declarant
again volunteered on an expedition into the Indian Country, against the
Indians, under the command of Col. David Williamson, a skirmish took place, and about ninety three Indians were killed.
It was the practice on such expeditions for the militia, after they
rendezvoused, to elect their officers, and declarant
served as a volunteer Lieutenant in the expedition last mentioned.” For some reason he made another statement
Bevington – in Smith and
Pvt. Charles Bilderback – on the 1888 list only as a Private, but later may have later been a Captain in the militia-in Cecil Township in the 1781 and 1783 tax lists.- a man of this name also listed in Strabane in 1783 with only a horse-; EF-“This is the man who killed the Moravian named Joseph Shabosh. the story is told that seven years later he was captured by hostile Indians, who, on learning of his identity, put him to death with torture….only a legend without proof”; the identification of this man as the man who fired the first shot wounding Shabosh and afterwards tomahawked and scalped him was also made by the local historian, Isaac Craig in 1881 if not earlier.
Charles has been given terrible notoriety by Allen Eckert as the man who killed the first thirteen Moravians with a mallet with no proof that I can find.. This claim has recently been increased in a film aired on public television to claim that Charles Bilderback not only killed the first thirteen men with a mallet, but scalped them as well. That claim is as yet unproven even though the author has searched the index and roll 11 of the Lyman C. Draper papers. Randall Wilkins, the author of this charge, has not proven this contention on Charles Bilderback. While holding no brief for anything but the truth and as egregious as is this event it seems important to have substantive evidence for charges made against individual men.
Charles Bilderback was well enough regarded to command a militia company as a Captain in the ‘Crawford’ campaign which followed in the summer of 1782. His fighting and leadership was apparently rewarded and appreciated by his peers.
Bilderback – name added by Isaac Craig in an 1881 letter as being on this
single, with nothing in 1783 in

His son says: “my father was in Williamson’s Moravian campaign, but he took no part in murdering”. The careers of Sr. and Jr. are difficult to separate. One local historian says Lewis Bonnett (probably Jr.) was born in 1762, from Hardy Co., Va and was pensioned for service 1779-1783. It is a puzzle as to which one was on this expedition. 
Pvt. James Bradford – only on the 1888 list- in Greene and Strabane Townships in the 1781 tax list and in Strabane in the 1783 list; PMF- buried at the Bradford Cemetery, Whiteley Township, Greene County, Pa., CWCW- wills 1801 and 1811 (two men ?).

who first used the mallet.” If this means that the man with the second
highest political and military position on the raid going as a Private began
the killing with a cooper’s mallet as this alleges he set a very bad example
for most of the men who had less prestige. Is this the unnamed man who actually
killed 13 people before he quit as reported in
If Daniel Leet committed that disgraceful first murdering it is no wonder that he later resigned his position as a Sub-Lieutenant of Washington County. It is also no wonder that the murders were done or that the story of the massacre was covered up from the public. Daniel Leet and the other influential men on this expedition who were politically and militarily powerful whom other men would either have followed or by whom they would be intimidated.
