NOTE: If the latest news I uncovered is correct, I owe Israel How an apology. I wrote earlier that his life was an asterisk. But if this bit of news is correct, his life was anything but dull. According to As Ancient is This Hostelry: The Story of the Wayside Inn, Israel How was killed by Indians in a raid on Rutland, Massachusetts. I am trying to verify that this was the cause of his death, and that the father of four children and his wife pregnant with their fifth, was indeed an Indian fighter. Stay Tuned.
