Soome of my notes although I bought the books from Mr. Bell's daughter.
"The Dutch Fork Settlement of Donegal Township, Washington Co, PA" by Bell, 41 pages 1978 with notes on these families: Deeds (Dietz), Fullenwider (Follenweider), Hupp, Leffler (Loffler), Miller (Muller), Philabaum, Rice (Reis)
We being greatly on the frontier line - this horrid scene happened as we were all forted at Mr. Rice's and between our cabin and his blockhouse. This happened, my husband and son as they fell in the enemy's hand - my husband scalped, lying in his blood, which was to me a great surprise and affecting sight, the loss of a good husband and an obedient son.
This attack by 60 Indians has been called the last battle of the Revolution. Indians, ten days later were ordered to cease attacks. Crumrine in his History of Washington County, Pennsylvania (Phila. 1882) wrote:
Some of the men from the fort had gone to Hagerstown for supplies and only five were left to defend it, viz.: George Leffler, Peter Fullenwider, Daniel Rice, George Philabaum and Jacob Leffler, Jr. This force was increased to six by the arrival of (Jacob) Miller (Jr.). The Indians soon made their appearance and surrounded the fort. The 6 defenders fired and 3 savages fell. The Indians returned the fire without effect, but in their second volley they killed George Philabaum, who was standing at a porthole. The firing was kept up during the day. Abraham Rice, of the fort, was absent, having set out for assistance.
