R.I.P. Mary Jemison. I'm a decendent of Mary Purdy (Crail) captured for 10 yrsby Shawnees in what was then PA. Her sis chose to remain with Shawnees. My GGG Grandma was ransomed by Dan Boone. I was facinated with your story. I'll never forget it. Thank you for sharing your journey. FF

Your Scot-Irish ancestry must have given you the strength you needed to walk 700 miles and to bear eight children. Rest now, dear Mary Jemison, and know you are in the hearts of your many descendents.

Wow. What a story you had Mary. Here I am 50 years old and I just now heard your story. My wife Jeannie and our boys Jarrod and Jamidon heard it on the way back to Sapulpa Ok from Branson Mo after Christmas 2012. Thanks to our friends Bob and Candace Gray and Andrew.

Mary I read your book lots of times as a little girl. You lived a long life with a good people. How many white women in the white community lived a life as good as yours back in that time period. Given the chance to go back...and you stayed...Mary...you made all the right choices...a beautiful woman...and a beautiful story...WALK ON...MARY...
