Bolling Kikpelathy "Long Hunter" Baker
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1725
Ashe County
North Carolina, USA
Death: 1812
Logan County
West Virginia, USA

Bolling "Long Hunter" Baker was captured by Indians in 1756. After the Revoluionary War, Bolin lived
with the Cherokee Indians. He was known as a renegade white man, and renowned horse thief.
He was located at Ingles Ferry in 1763,where he participated in the rescue of Thomas Ingles.
There was not a soldier under the command of General Braddock who stood higher in the love and esteem of his comrades than did Bolling Baker. His will power gave way under the strain, and one dark night in 1756, he went west until he reached the bank of the Ohio River, where he was taken captive by a band of Shawnee Indians. His captors took him to their Chief Cornstalk, and a council was held to determine the measure of punishment for the paleface. His carriage,cool composure,
and handsome features so excited the admiration of Aracoma, Chief Cornstalk's comely daughter, that she persuaded her father to spare his life and permit him to become a member of the tribe. Bolin became madly infatuated with the Indian maiden, and paid her ardent court. Aracoma and Baker moved to the Ohio Valley sometime close to 1760, and lived in peace on the island in today's city of Logan, until 1780. Six of their children died of the plague in 1776.
