Thank you so much!

I have found little bits about her but nothing for sure. Our family oral history mentions only a hint. So sad this got lost over time.

I will look for the book in the library. (I'll bet the DAR has a copy.)

Here's a version of the song about her (I am not on Ancestry any more so do not remember if I picked it up here or not. It has been a while.)

VERSE 1
Way out on an Indian reservation
Far away from civilization
Back where the foot of white men seldom trod
White man went to fish, one summer
Met an Indian girl, a hummmer,
Daughter of the big chief, Spare-The-Rod

VERSE 2
White man threw some loving glances
Take the maid to merry war dances
Smoked the pipe of peace, took chances
Living in a teepee made of fur
He rode with her, on Indian pony
Gave her diamond ring, a phony
Then he sang these loving words to her

VERSE 3
Come by my pretty little Indian Napinee
Won't ya take a chance an' marry me
For your daddy's a chief, t'is my belief
To a very merry wedding, he'll agree
Though you're dark little Indian maid
I'll sunburn to a darker shade
I'll wear feathers on my head
Paint my face an Indian red
If you'll only be my Napinee
