    My mother wrote a genealogy-intensive book about her as a product of looking for our Indian ancestors.  Before she passed away, we talked about rewriting it.  

    Rebecca Kellogg Ashley, 1695-1757 by Barbara L. Covey

    Rebecca and her family were captured by Indians in 1704.  She was taken to live near Montreal.  She grew up among the Kanienkehaga, converted to Catholicism, married a half-Indian man and had her sons.  She returned to English society and, I believe, was swept up in the Great Awakening.  At age fifty, she married a widower twenty years younger than she (great-grandma was a cougar? she wasn't rich).

    There's a lot of story to the story, so to speak.

    Create. Build. Serve. Encourage. Teach.
