"Have you an ancestor who was a captive of the famous Indian Chief Worumbee in his stronghold at Auburn in 1690?
Probably not, but to hear from a person thrills a worker on the history of Auburn. Such a trill came to Androscoggin Historical Society, through the kindness of Ralph B. Skinner, when Mrs Albert Nelson Roberts of Whitneyville, MA., sent the record showing her descent in the ten generation from Mrs Sarah Burnham Huckins, captive for more than a year in the Indian fort in what is now Auburn, Maine.
As a result of Indian atrocities the government at Boston, MA sent Major Benjamin Church to Auburn, He destroyed the fort, took nine Indian prisoners and rescued several English captives, among them Mrs Sarah Burnham Huckins of Oyster River, NH (now Durham). She had been captured in the Oyster River massacre in 1689 in which her husband, Lieut James Huckins, lost his life. Her son Robert escapes.
An old. old story, worn bare by many telling, suddenly comes to like again when a bright light, thrown upon the ancient tale, makes an event of 1690 news in 1968." [History of Auburn, Maine by Skinner page 2]
This is an interest story to me, David Colby Young as hope to document, that I am a 9th generation direct descendant of the said, Mrs Sarah Burnham Huckins named above. We would like to hear from you if you are also a direct descendant of Sarah Huckins.
