Ice, Immanuel
659; Frederick Ice was a Hollander from Amsterdam who settled in Monongalia County on the Cheat River in 1767. Two of his children, William and an unnamed daughter, were captured by Indians. William, "was adopted and raised as an Indian, acquired all of their habits, but never quite forgot his white relations and frequently would make his escape and coming back to his old home, remaining until his 'acquired indolence' would cause some friction with his parents or some member of the family when he would leave and go back to the Indians. . . . His sister married an Indian and was the mother of thrirteen children, two of whom became famous amongst his red brethren, Tecumseh and his brother, the prophet, who gave the colonial government a vast amount of trouble" (2437-38). Ice's Ferry is a town on Cheat Lake, the result of the damming of the Cheat River. [1]
