In August 1792, during a period of frontier
unrest, Indians attacked the home of David
Musick and his wife, Annie, near Honaker
in Russell County. They killed Musick and
captured his wife and their five children
Abraham, Elijah, Samuel, Elexius, and Phoebe.
The prisoners were marched to present day
Dickenson County at the junction of Russell
Fork and Russell Prater Creek.
Nearby a
company of militiamen attacked the Indians
and the surviving Musick family members
escaped. During the skirmish one Indian was
killed and another was wounded. The remainder retreated westward.
