William Tucker, agreed.  Jack returned to Morgan's plantation alone, wearing Morgan's hat.  When he reported that Morgan was dead, two male servants asked no questions, but grabbed one of Morgan's muskets and shot Jack at pointblank range.  His dying requests were that he be buried among the English and that no one tell his people that he had been killed by a bullet.  Those requests (which might hav eprevented a bloody war) were ignoed.  The body of Jack of the Feather was returned to his people...

Mr. Thompson, of St. Mark's parish, of whom we have given so good an account in our aticle on Culpepper.  His family, now reduced in numbers by death and dispersion, have contributed largely to the support of this congregation.  The venerable mother, daughter of old Mr. Robert Slaughter, of Culpepper, was loved and esteemed by all who knew her, as one of the humblest and most devoted members of the divine power and excellency of religion streghtened by every visit made to her abode.  She exchanged it some years since for a better one above.
