The haunting legend of Peter Poor, settler killed during 1781 Indian raid

SHELBURNE – Many from the area have probably heard some stories about Native American legend, Molly Ockett and her ties with early white settlers, and, of course, about the last American settler killed by an "Indian," Peter Poor. Many stories about Poor have circulated throughout the years regarding his gravesite off of North Road, which is alleged to be haunted.
