I was looking up the history of Webb cemetery near Sullivan Indiana, and it told about 2 men who got shot by Indians and the one man died and was buried in a log which started Webb cemetery. Anyway, both men whose horses spooked and ran to different forts were both taken care of by a lady named Mary Ann Gill.This was Feb13,1815.She was the wife of a William Gill, She was the daughter of Dr. McCrae of Wilmington, North Carolina and before her marriage had been an army nurse. The 2 men she took care of were Dudley Mack (who fell off of his horse and died) They buried him in a log, then she was called to the other fort to take care of the other man John Collins. The two men were comming from Shakertown when they were shot by Indians, and I read here that a Sarah Gill was the head eldress of the shakers. I was just wondering if there was any connection?
