      Once again, the Indians, there were three of them, thought they were far enough into their own territory to let down their guard. The entire cave lies in sandstone of the Conemaugh Series of the Pennsylvanian System. Surprising numbers of adopted whites were profoundly transformed by this process and remained very attached to their Indian families. West Virginia has named a county and a state highway after him.

      The entire cave lies in sandstone of the Conemaugh Series of the Pennsylvanian System. It mattered not to him that they were Chiefs, Warriors, women or children. They saw that the boys were being taken captive and decided to run to the fort for weapons and help. Lewis fled, reloading as he ran.
