From the previous post by Jan Lala:
<<About the first of August, [ 1778 ] I made an incursion into the Indian country, with a party of nineteen men,including my friend Captain Teter,,in order to surprise a small town up Sciotha, called Paint-Creek-Town.>>
Please supply the source for this quote from Daniel Boone's journal. I looked for it on the Internet, and I found a version at http://www.earlyamerica.com/lives/boone/chapt2/, with better spelling and punctuation, and the phrase "including my friend Captain Teter" missing:
<<About the first of August, I made an incursion into the Indian country, with a party of nineteen men, in order to surprise a small town up Sciota, called Paint-Creek-Town.>>
I also found it quoted like your version, on a web site called The Teter Brothers of Pendleton County, http://teterbrothers.home.comcast.net/~teterbrothers/index.html, which is full of errors and features the photograph I took in 1998 of Samuel Teter's Plantation Plenty, stolen from my web site.
This experience adds to my alarm that genealogy beginners might not question the accuracy of your "FACTS". I hope that most will recognize the difference between quantity and quality.
