    • “After a year or more with the Indians, Nicholas Seybert arranged for the escape of his brothers and sisters. He had become a trustee with the Indians, and was allowed to carry on fur trading with the French. One evening when a wagon load of furs was taken out of camp he put his brothers and sisters in the bottom of the wagon, piling furs on top of them. As the wagon was driven away Nicholas remained at camp, manifesting surprise when the Indians discovered their disappearance. He pretended to be as disturbed as the Indians. That same night he made his escape.” {{"The Dyer Settlement -The Fort Seybert Massacre-Fort Seybert, West Virginia", by Mary Lee Keister Talbot}}
