A Narrative of the Life of Mrs. Mary Jemisonby James E. Seaver
Pub. Date: 05/28/1990
Publisher: Syracuse University Press
In 1758, fifteen-year-old Mary Jemison and her family were captured near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, by a Shawnee and French raiding party. Shortly thereafter, her family was killed; she was turned over to a Seneca family, adopted by them, and four years later taken to their western New York homeland--where, by choice, she spent the rest of her life as an Iroquois wife, mother, and landed proprietor.
