Benjamin was taken captive on April 1 1793 at Morgan Station Montgomey Co Ky, where most of his siblings and mother were murdered in the "Last Indian Raid in Ky"
Ben, was about 14 years of age, who went on with the Indians. They carried him with themselves on a horse and took him almost directly to Detroit, scarcely stopping at their towns. There they sold him to a Scotchman, who put him in a store, gave him a pretty good slight at writing, and made such an improvement on him as you never saw put on anyone. He had been gone only about 20 months when at Wayne's Treaty, they had to go get him and dress him up. He came back with no Indian paint and he was nicely dressed. But he soon got to be a Becraft again.
