3. ii. Mary² b. 1663; m., Jan. 1, 168 1, Lient. Joseph Wheeler, B. 1660;  d. 1706.
Mary² Power and Lieut. Joseph Wheeler, who was probably a son of Lieut. Joseph Wheeler, later, Capt. Wheeler, were the grandparents of Capt. Glazier Wheeler, noted in the history of New Hampshire. May she not be the " little girl " referred to by S. G. Drake, and copied by the writer in 1853 from his manuscript account? " February 12, 1676, Jacob and Isaac Sheppard were killed near Nas- hobe, in Concord Village, as they were threshing in their barn. Being afraid of a surprise, they had set a little girl, their sister Mary, about 5 years old, on an eminence to look out; but the Indians stole upon and took her captive, and then proceeded to the barn, and killed her brothers. She was carried away to their town or encampment, and not long after made her heroic escape. As her captors were asleep in the night, she took one of the horses they had stolen not long before from Lancaster, and mounting upon it, with a saddle which she got from under the head of one of the sleeping Indians, rode off; coming to the Nashua River, she dashed through it and thence through the woods to her own home." The question may fairly be raised if the Sheppards were not threshing in the barn of their brother-in-law, and if the little girl "Mary" was not their niece, who was just the age described at that time. We have no record that the Sheppards had a barn in Con- cord Village, or a sister Mary.
