Note:   [ralphroberts.ged] [roberts.GED] [dlb8144.ged] BIOGRAPHY When she was an older lady, Mrs. Rhoda Alexander often told, with tears, to her grandchildren the dangers and annoyances of that early pioneer life. How, when the men of the family were absent, Indians would come and frighten the women and children, take their provisions, open their feather beds and empty the contents all over the house, and collect their household furniture in the yard and burn it. One day, as James Alexander returned along the path that led home, he saw a fire in front of his cabin. From this, he knew the Indians were causing trouble. As he advanced along the path he saw three Indians coming towards him. He stepped behind some bushes, they came on singing and dancing. His rifle cracked and the Indians disappeared. " Grandfather, did you kill them?" inquired the child to whom he was telling the story. The old man knew whether his aim was true or not. His only answer was, " I did not look back to see, my little girl." Rhoda Cunningham was a niece of General William L. Davidson, who was killed in the War of the Revoluntion. Rhoda is buried in Piney Grove Cemetery.
