    Notes 
    • Barbara Long, daughter of Paul Long, B. 1711, D. 1759. She was the granddaughter of Philip Long B. 1678, D. 4 May, 1753. Philip lived on a farm now owned by the heirs of C.D. Price, dec'd. 7 miles S.W. of Luray. At this home is an old fort built by the first Long.


      It is said that Barbara that about dusk the day before the indian attach Mrs. Brubaker told her husband that she had seen indians emcaped on the mountain (two miles away) and that she was certain they would be attacked the next day. She begged him to take them away to a place of safety but he made light of her fears. Certain in the knowledge that a raid was in the offing, she went about her work the next day with a watchful eye in that direction and her infant in her arms. When the first screams from the Stone house rent the air, the Brubakers fled for their lives and crossed the river to safety. The Indians plundered and set fire to the Brubaker home.
