Picking Berries Wasn’t Always a Good Idea


When the first settlers arrived in the Morgan Valley they found that the Native Americans were friendly; however they considered the land and foliage to be their property.  This belief could occasionally cause problems, as one of the settlers, George Higley found out.  Higley was picking serviceberries one day when he was noticed by some of Chief Little Solder’s Tribe.  This didn’t set well with the Indians; as a result of this offense, he was found guilty and as punishment he was whipped.  It can be assumed that he didn’t pick any more serviceberries.
