    During the Schenectady Massacre in February 1690, Jan Dirkse and at least one other child (a son) were slain. Jan Baptist Van Eps, his eldest son, was taken as a prisoner and held captive at an Indian villiage in Canada for 2-3 years. In February 1693, Jan Baptist was taken along as a guide by his captors on a raid of the nearby Mohawk Village which may have become a second raid of Schenectady and Albany (4). When near Schenectady, during the night, Jan was able to sneak away from camp and hurry to Schenectady to warn the inhabitants of the impending attack. Word was then sent to Fort Orange and a strong force was sent out to protect Schenectady and it's allies. Local legend states that Jan appeared in full Indian attire and war paint atthe Glen's house in Scotia. It is said that Helena, Johannes Sanderse Glen's oldest daughter, was quite intrigued by this unusual visitor. This must be true because Jan became her husband six years later.
    In the book "From NewYork to Montreal", author Benjamin Clapp Butler states:
    The French commander, in his notes, ascribes the failure of this attempted raid to the escape of Jan Baptist.
