DEPEW, DEPUE posted by Elaine Sanderson on Tuesday, November 11, 1997

I'm trying to track down a particular ancestor of mine. DEPEW/DEPUE, first name unknown. Said to have been from Black Rock, NY. Said to have been killed by Indians, probably between 1812 and 1814. Had at least one son, named Isiah G. DEPEW/DEPUE. Had perhaps another son, or else a brother. I realize this is a bit vague, but we're trying to find this particular man out of the many with that name. I've been wondering if perhaps he was killed in the British/Indian raid on Black Rock/Buffalo in the war of 1812. Family stories certainly support this as the locale of the incident.
