The story of Clarinda Allington is also related in the Draper Manuscripts.The manuscript provides an account of an attack on Morgan's Station that occurred April 1, 1793.In that account is the following:
"Old Mrs. Allington, mother of Clarinda-who were both living at Morgan's Station and Clarinda's brothers, Johnathan and David, were living within a mile of the station--went along with the Martins as far as she could go, and when overcome with fatigue, laid down till night overtook her, and then made her way over to Peakes--after we'd all been to the stations.Old Mrs. Allington's husband's name I never knew.He was never in this country."
Clarinda Allington was captured by the Indians in that raid, but later returned home with three Indian children.Later in the same account, it states:
"At Wayne's Treaty, they had to go and get him--Ben Becraft--and give him up.He came back with no Indian paint and he was nicely dressed, but soon got back to being a Becraft again.They could get no Indian at this treaty that could give any account of such a girl as Baker's daughter.All the others were then given up except Clarinda Allington and they said her husband would have to give her up--she was in the Cherokee Nation with him.She staid with the Indians 6 or 7 years till she had 3 children--John, a girl, and Mrs. Allington when she got permission to come and see her brothers, the Cherokee Chief sending a little negro boy of 16 or 17 along to take care of the children.She had promised to go back.She ever after refused to return; but left her children with Jacob--her brother--and gave hime the little negro boy to pay him for raising them:Jacob was him yet, I expect in Missouri.She again married, soon after she came out."
This account was related by James Wade.According to him, the Johnathan Allingtons, Peter Cutrights, John Peakes, and Abraham Becraft moved to Morgan Station in February and March 1791.A Col. Whitley stated that Johnathan Allington later moved into Ohio on the Scioto.
