[1840s] · Glasgow [Scotland]
Young Sergeant Grigor is killed and scalped by Indians at Fort Niagara in America on 30 July 1759. Back home in Scotland his lover mourned; and "As she was a-weeping under the green oak, / He quickly past by her and not a word spoke, / Yet, shaking his left hand, where the ring he did wear, / It wanted a finger, and blood dropped there." Soon after, the young lady died of grief.
