Johnston and his party were captured at the mouth of the Scioto and were taken to Sandusky by a band of Indians consisting of Cherokees, Shawnees, Delawares, and Wyandots. After several weeks they were discovered by British traders and taken to the safety of the British post at Detroit. Johnston later provided the American government with information about what he had seen. "One of the most interesting Indian captivities" - Streeter. HOWES J158. FIELD 784. AMERICAN IMPRINTS 29372.
