Living with the Senecas: A Story about Mary Jemison (CMB)

by Susan B. Aller


Quick Overview

This book is about a lady named Mary Jemison who was captured by the Seneca Indians as a young girl and stayed with them for the rest of her life. It is a fascinating account of courage, hardship, and her decision to stay with the Senecas.


Mary Jemison was born in 1743 as her parents emigrated from Ireland to Pennsylvania. When she was fifteen years old, a group of raiding Shawnee Indians and French soldiers captured her and her family. She was the only one to survive. For seventy-five years, she lived among the Seneca Indians who adopted her. She outlived two husbands and bore eight children. She witnessed two wars and a revolution. Even though she could have returned to the white world, she chose to remain with the Senecas and became a loyal and respected member of her tribe. Size 0.3" H x 8.3" L x 5.8" W, 64 pages
