On September 8, 1864, while her husband William was, haying about two miles from the house, two renegade Indians attacked; they shot Catherine, beat the children and left them for dead. Newspaper reports said two of the children had been killed and Dr. Guptill of Millville was not sure any of them could live; he covered a hole in baby Robert's head with a silver fifty-cent piece and put a silver plate in Lillian's head, and all four survived.
Catherine was buried near the house where she was killed. Her stone is still there and readable -- B. ALLEN --Died September 8, 1864.
