Inscription. Near this spot in 1764, Shawnee Indians killed John Tremble (Trimble) in the last such event in Augusta County. During the preceding decade, a series of conflicts between Native Americans and European settlers occurred along the western frontier of the colonies. They included the French and Indian War (1754–1763), Cherokee War (1759–1761), and Pontiacís War (1763–1764). Although Chief Pontiac conducted most of his warfare between Detroit and Pittsburgh, the effects of that conflict rippled up and down the frontier.
