Death of Simon Simon Girty Sr.

  of 181

Here's some interesting info from the Ben Franklin's Pennsylvania Gazette. Most histories says Simon Sr. was murdered by an Indian named the Fish. Could Samuel Saunders be the Indian?

Pennsylvania Gazette, April 11, 1751.

"Yesterday the Trial of Samuel Saunders, for the Murder of Simon Girtie, came on at the Supream Court, when the Jury return their Verdict Manslaughter.
