William More was of Stratham. His son. Wm. More, one of Roger's Rangers, was captured by the Indians after he had with one of their tomahawks killed several of them, and was taken by them to their encampment to be tortured. While preparations were making for his torture, and after several wounds had been afflicted, the mother of one who he had killed stepped forth, and adopted him as her son. He continued with them about six years, when an opportunity was found for his escape from captivity and sufferings may be seen in N.H. Historical Collection Vol. III, p. 87.
