|Death: ||Jul. 3, 1781|
On the 3d of July, a bloody and most melancholy tragedy was enacted on the road leading from Wyoming to the Delaware, at Stroudsburg. Mr. Larned, an aged man, and his son George, were shot and scalped near their house. Another son, John, shot an Indian, who was left dead on the spot where he fell. The savages carried off George Larned's wife, and an infant four months old, but not choosing to be encumbered with the child, they dashed out its brains. Being pursured, they abandoned the horses and plunder taken, and left the old man's scalp behind them. -- History of Wyoming, pages 296-297.
