Mrs. Blinn and her son Willie were captives of the Kiowa when Custer attacked the Cheyenne village of Black Kettle. Several weeks later the Army returned to try and locate the bodies of Major Elliott and his troop. They did and went on to the Kiowa camp 2 miles down stream. The Village was abandoned and the bodies of Mrs. Blinn and her child were discovered. Their bodies were taken to Ft. Arbuckle for burial along with Maj. Elliott.
