  • Note: Moredock McKenzie and his wife Jemimah Chapman and several kids (Isaac, Henley, Margaret, Elizabeth, and others) are known to have lived in Culpeper County, Virginia through 1768, then relocated to Shenandoah County, having finally settled on the New River of VA in Montgomery (now Giles) County, VA in 1771. In the Spring of 1778, say Giles County and New River histories, they moved a short distance up the New River to Wolf Creek, and in May 1778 were attacked by Indians who kidnapped the two eldest daughters and killed the rest, except for Mordock and Isaac who were away chasing horses. The daughters were not "rescued" until 1794 or so, living near Detroit, having spent many years in Shawnee culture. (Rees Chapman at OL-Chap[@msn.com)
