Overview

A Woman of Courage on the West Virginia Frontier: Phebe Tucker Cunningham by Robert N. Thompson


Life on the West Virginia frontier was a daily struggle for survival. For Phebe Tucker Cunningham, that meant the loss of her four children at the hands of the Wyandot tribe and being held captive for three years until legendary renegades Simon Girty and Alexander McKee arranged her freedom. Author Robert Thompson recounts the harrowing story of this courageous woman, from her marriage at Prickett's Fort in 1780 to her return to the shores of the Monongahela. Thompson describes in vivid detail early colonial life in the Alleghenies and the ways of the Wyandot, providing historical context for this unforgettable saga.

I would give this book 5 stars except for the statement that Thomas is a son of Hugh Cunningham. There is DNA and other documented proof that shows Thomas to be a brother to Adam which is DNA proved to be a son of ADAM. By fact that Thomas is a brother to Edward, then Thomas is in fact a son of Adam Cunningham and not a son of Hugh.
