My 5th great grandmother is Barbara Culp McKinney. Her story is a remarkable example of pioneer grit, bravery and survival. As I explored my genealogy, I came across her story and was reminded of the strength we can gain from our ancestor’s experiences. Barbara survived a brutal Indian attack that occurred in Chester, South Carolina in 1761. She was brutally scalped and left for dead by a band of Cherokee Indians. This is the story of her courageous survival.
