Again in 1782 the fair valley in this vicinity was swept over by the enemy, numbering about six hundred Tories and Indians. They were first discovered by Peter Wolever, who with Augustinus Hess lived about 50 rods from the fort. Both families were aroused and all reached the fort except for Mr Hess who was killed just as he was entering the gate. The fort at that time was only feebly garrisoned, and the few troops could not assume the offensive... All buildings in the settlement, excepting George Herkimer's house, were burned and the cattle driven away. This incident was described to the late Judge Benton by Nicholas Wolever, in the lifetime of the latter, then living at Herkimer and is undoubtedly authentic...
