      Apparently Orley Hull's mother-in-law and brother-in-law were abducted by Indians and killed. According to an Oregon Donation Land Claim filed in 26 February 1856, Israel Clark stated that "my wife, Hannah Willis Clark, came to Territory 1 February 1855 & was murdered by Indians 5 July 1855, left as issue of our marriage--David Clark, Mary Hull, Abraham Clark, Sarah Ann Springer, Sarah Ann Springer, Elisbeth F. Roberts and Daniel O. Clark. He also stated "my son, James H. Clark arrived Terr. 1 Feb. 1855, was murdered by Indians 5 July 1855, leaving no wife or other heirs save myself. " A note attached to the file by Justice of the Peace of Grande Ronde says "Prob. within bounds of Grand Ronde Indian Reservation." (Yamhill County).

      Family legend has it that years later the family encounted an Indian woman wearing Hannah's clothes.
