    The Siwanoy warriors stampeded into the tiny settlement above Pelham Bay, prepared to burn down every house. Chief Wampage had sent a warning, expected to find no settlers present. But at one house they encounterd several children, young men and women, and a woman past middle age. The Siwanoy seized and scalped Francis Hutchinson, William Collins, several servants, the two Annes (mother and daughter), and the younger children. The exact date of the massacre is not but likely August 1643.
