John kellys son did come back and is noted with Samuel Teater Timothy Logan ect in the revolution Kentucky Longknives. it also shows Samuel Gibson Teater and the Worleys married the same sisters Doddridge. col Worley was a friend and distant relative to William Tator who married Elizabeth Gibson the sister of Tuscarora chief Walter Gibson christian indians. so either George William Teater and Samuel Gibson Teater went north to the French Indian war with Daniel Boone or they went thru the Richard Pearis scouts. Thomas Girty, son of the notorious Simon Girty (who fled from Ireland to escape the vengeance of the people, whom he betrayed), was the only one of this really vicious band of Girtys, who failed to continue notorious.
Simon Girty, or Katepa-Comen, son of Simon first, was made a prisoner during Braddock's war, was adopted by the Delawares, and died a drunken brawler. He had time to engage in those disgraceful murders which marked the warfare of those times against the Americans. This white rascal died at Malden in 1815, where he resided, receiving a small pittance.
George Girty, another child of infamy, died without gratifying his murderous inclinations.
James Girty, the fourth son of Old Simon, was an officer in the British service. He was made a prisoner during Braddock's war, was a notorious criminal, as a thousand family histories in Kentucky and Ohio can tell, and died the death becoming so much cruelty.
Michael Girty, another son of Old Simon, born after his father's murder, and after the wife's union with his murderer, was the son of an Indian woman. This cut-throat served the British in Ohio some time, but in 1821 moved to Illinois, where he engaged in wholesale murder and rapine. In 1827 he was interpreter for Gen. Cass, at the treaty of Bureau, subsequently aided BlackHawk, murdered the settlers at Indian Creek, carried off the Hall girls and died in 1836. for one reason or another joseph worley and samuel gibson teater settled with the girtys after the french indian after the cherokee war, thefore they would of all been freinds who together at thier fort in that time
It was Simon Girty that defeated Daniel Boone at the blue licks yet it was Daniel Boone and Cpt Samuel Gibson Teater who defeated Girtys people at the siege of booneboro earlier.
