Birth: Aug. 23, 1683
Hampshire County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Nov. 3, 1716
Quebec, Canada

A survivor of the Deerfield Massacre in which Canadian Indians and their French allies attacked the small Massachusetts village killing 51 people and taking another 112 captive on February 29, 1704. Her husband of less than three months, Andrew Stephens, coincidentally a Native American, her mother, and other family members were killed in the massacre.

She was one of the captives who was driven on snowshoes to Montreal, Quebec.

There, she later remarried and changed her name to Marie-Elisabeth (It was just Elisabeth) and married her 2nd husband, Jean Fourneau (Brindamour). She was my 9th great-grandmother.
