Lieutenant Obadiah Gore, Jr. (1744-1821) b. Norwich, CT; d. Sheshequin, PA. Gore moved in 1762 with his father and family to the Wyoming Valley of Pennsylvania, one of the first Connecticut families to settle in the area. Gore's father was killed in the "Wyoming Massacre" at Forty Fort in June of 1778. The son, whose diary we find here, was keen to accompany General Sullivan on his march through Indian territory during which the Senecas were completely routed, never to harass the American settlements again. He was a member of Hand's Brigade.

After the war he returned to Sheshequin, PA, or, Queen Esther's Town, one of the Indian villages burned during the march, and settled with his family, becoming prominent in local civil affairs and commerce.
