The history of Queen Esther is one of remarkable interest. She led the Indians

into the fort at the time it was surrendered; and presided at the fatal ring, of

which Mrs. Durkee, an aged aunt, (See also the Hannah GORE Durkee Story) gives

the following account: "Fifteen or sixteen of our men, who had been taken

prisoners by the Indians, were assembled to receive their death-blow, by the

hand of Queen Esther, a large, middle-aged Seneca woman, who had such honors

assigned her.

In this case, it was thought to be revenge for the death of her son, who was

killed by the whites.

"Some of the prisoners made their escape from the ring; others attempted it, but

were unsuccessful. Among these was George Gore, who had broken through the ring

and ran for the river, but was overtaken by an Indian, who, with his knife and

tomahawk, cut him to pieces. He was an active and handsome young man. His hat

was picked up and taken to his friends at the fort."

The remaining twelve or more were murdered with the tomahawk, by the hand of

this savage Queen, on the "Bloody Rock," which may still be seen.

Queen Esther's residence was near Tioga Point. Her village was of considerable

size, two or three miles below the present village of Athens, on the west side

of the river, and within the township. It is said it contained about seventy

houses, of rude form.

An expedition to Tioga was planned by Colonel Hartley, in September, after the

battle, to destroy Indian towns and break up their hiding places.

With a small array of soldiers, they marched on their hazardous way toward

Sheshequnnunck, where they took fifteen prisoners, killed and scalped a chief,

and the rest fled. They made valuable discoveries, and moved rapidly towards

Tioga Point.

Captain Spalding, afterwards known among us as General Spalding, of Sheshequin,

had command of the 2d division. They were told that young Butler, a Tory, with

his Royal Greens, had just fled from Tioga with 300 men, toward Cliemung, 14

miles off, where they were fortifying, and were 1,000 strong. Colonel Hartley

was not prepared to meet them, and after burning Tioga, Queen Esther's town, and

palace, and all the Indian settlements in his way, crossing the "Sheshequin

Path," he returned to Sunbury, where a vote of thanks was passed for Colonel

Hartley and his brave men.

Captain Spalding is spoken of as having been efficient in that enterprise. They

accomplished much, and brought speedy retribution upon Queen Esther and her

associates, for. the untold misery they had inflicted upon Wyoming three month


Though savage in time of war, Queen Esther was represented as quiet and trustful

in time of peace. After the war closed she was often passing from Tioga to

Onondaga, unprotected. One time while Mrs. Durkee was residing in Scipio, N. Y.,

she came to her house in the evening, on her way to Onondaga, with a sister, who

was much intoxicated, carrying a papoose upon her back, and inquired in broken

English if they could stay there through the night and sleep on the kitchen

floor; Mrs. D. being well acquainted with her, she was permitted to stay until

morning, and then went on her way. It has excited some wonder how this Indian

Queen came by her Jewish name. If, as some suppose, the Indians have descended

from the lost tribes of Israel, it might thus be accounted for, or what is more

probable, she might have derived it from the Moravian Missionaries, who had many

stations among them, and whose names they often adopted. She married Tom Hill,

an Indian as forbidding as herself, and after she left Tioga she went to

Onondaga to reside.

Some writers have identified Catharine Monteur with Queen Esther, of Bloody Rock

notoriety; others say this is improbable, and that the general supposition

concerning Catharine is that she was the daughter of an early French Governor of

Canada, taken captive when a child, afterwards becoming the wife of a Seneca

Chief, and was a lady of comparative refinement. Her residence was at Seneca

Lake. The Indian village called Catharine's town, named for her, was destroyed

by Sullivan's army. She subsequently lived at Niagara.

When you send the ants in the mail do you send a queen with the ants?

This is taken from the Frequently Asked Questions section on the Uncle Milton site:
Do you send queen ants? Federal agricultural regulations prohibit us from selling or shipping the queen ant. Since only the queen reproduces, the regional ecological balance is cited as the main concern. The ant farms were also not designed to house the large queen and the thousands of offspring she produces. The ants will work without the queen.
