Overview

"A Narrative Of The Life of Mrs. Mary Jemison Who was taken by the Indians in the year 1755," when only about twelve years of age, and has continued to reside amongst them to the present time. In this book, Seaver tells the story of Jemison's captivity, her life, her marriage to a Seneca Indian, then after his death, her marriage to another Seneca man; then the birth of her 8 or 9 children, and the hard life she had as a Seneca woman--though once accepted into the tribe she was treated like any other woman of the tribe. Mary Jemison became known, probably in her own lifetime, as "The White Woman of the Genessee." Her kindness and charity to all people were well known throughout her life, despite the cruelties she had seen or experienced from both the settlers and the Seneca tribe.
