June, 1739;

. . . The next night but one there came to us one squaw who said that Hanna Dustan & the afore said Mary Neff assisted in killing the Indians of her wigwam except herself & a boy, herself escaping verry narrowly, shewing to my self & others seven wounds as she said with a hacthet (sic.) on her head which wound were given her when the rest were killed, and farther said not.
