From "Diary of a Curcuit Riding Methodist Preacher" page 72 that was located at the Newton Historical Society Museum in Newton, Dale Co., AL (I don't have the author's name)
"Indians slipped in on Mrs. Rachel Alberson and her sister at their home in the lower edge of Geneva County. Bill Alberson was gone from home. When her returned he first stripped and put his horse in the lot and then went to the house. On entering he was horrified to find both still in death and lying side by side. Scalped and their bodies mutilated. Alberson got up men quick as possible and gave pursuit. At night they saw a light near the swamp surrounded it and made a rush but found no Indians there. They got leggins and a butcher knife. They hunted nearly a weak but made no further discovery. An Indian squaw was captured and placed in jail at Dale Co. Alberson slipped up and shot her."
