Infant James Bascom Cambern, Jr. was a babe in his mother's arms when the band of Indians and three white men killed Mr. Cambern and the two oldest children, Luther, twelve years and William eleven years in a field close to the house. After they killed them, they raided the home then took Mrs. Cambern, the infant James, nine year old Tom, seven year old Mary and three year old Dewitt 'Witt' out on a hill not too far from the house. The spot could not be seen easily because of the many trees. The Indians started to tie Tom on a mule and Mrs. Cambern began crying and pleading. They then killed her and the infant James then finished tying Tom on the mule. The group then rode off taking Tom with them but leaving little Mary and Dewitt.
