Native American Raids

In 1704, news of the French and Indian massacre of English colonists in Deerfield, Mass., led Farmington townspeople to fortify seven houses. After rumors of an Indian attack from Canada, settlers asked the Tunxis Indians to remove any war paint and wear white cloths around their heads so they could be distinguished in battle. A Mohawk Indian raid is said to have taken place at one time that resulted in the death of a Mr. Scott, who lived at the present-day Scott’s Swamp.
