A child of English descent, was born in Warwick, Rhode Island, March, 1773, was carried into captivity from her father's house at Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. November 2, 1778, by Delaware Indians soon after the Wyoming Massacre. Her brothers gave persistent search but did not find her until September 21, 1837.
When, inclined by a published letter describing an aged white woman in the Miami Indian village here, two brothers and a sister visited this place and identified her. She lived near here about 32 years with the Indian name "Ma-Con-a-Quah." She died on this ridge March 9, 1847, and was given a Christian burial.
Became a stranger to her mother-tongue. She became a stranger to her brethren, and an alien to her mother's children, through her captivity. See Psalms LXIX, 8.
This monument was erected by Slocums and others who deemed it a pleasure to contribute, and was unveiled by them with public ceremonies May 17, 1900.
