I love to imagine her cantering over the hillsides and through the woods to give aid to those her were in pain. I also love that she was a doctor to Native American people, which I imagine might not have been very common at this time. This is also amazing given the fact that her husband’s father, and three youngest siblings had been killed by a tribe of Native Americans on their farm in West Virginia. The four oldest children were taken by the tribe and raised as their own. Ephraim and his sisters Rebecca and Mary eventually left the tribes they were with. Ephraim’s brother John decided to go back to Native American culture after some time back with the Whites as he disapproved of the ways of the Whites. Mary’s husband, Ephraim, joined a militia where he taught the soldiers how to fight Native Americans as he knew their techniques and tactics. I do wonder how he and Mary came to terms with their differences. Was this something they ever talked about? Did he agree with her helping the very same people he was fighting?
