Thank you very much. Your interest, courtesy, and knowledge, are very much appreciated.
I have searched high and low, for anyone, other then Elijah Hackleman, to be the "source" of the Indian story/event, but could find no other involved. I have found/read several events of old "injun stories" that could have been borrowed, a piece here, a piece there, to be combined into this one. They, of course, involved other persons, events, eras, and usually, areas.
It is very hard for most of us to understand that the question of "liberty or death" during the Rev War was not all cut and dried. Your neighbor, might be friend or foe, or he might be just foe, or even might be friend and foe. It did not vary, too much,in some cases, some 85 years later. Answers, often, were more dearer than life.
I'm sure glad it was not that hard for an old fellow Thunderbird down the way from you, and myself, during WWII.
By your information ( even though to receive a Land Grant back in 1778 era demanded an Oath of Loyality) some of these residents played both sides againest the middle, or downright lied. I know, with no disrespect intended, that the "Old" Baptist Churches (especially in rural areas) in Old 96 area SC, were at times almost the worst enemy, not the Tories.
By the way, what were the simularities between the captivity of Daniel Asbury, and the "supposed" of our subject? Do you note any supposed happenings in "our" story, and that of others?
As stated, I have not found any marriage records, church records, legal records, for Luke, Blades, this area/era?
Thank you very much. Happy New Year! Dick
