Mary Jemison

Date of Death : Sep 19, 1833
Birth Place : Adams County

Mary Jemison was an American frontierswoman who was adopted in her teens by the Seneca. When she was in her teens, she was captured in what is now Adams County, Pennsylvania, from her home along Marsh Creek. She became fully assimilated into her captors' culture and later chose to remain a Seneca rather than return to British colonial culture. Her statue stands today in Letchworth State Park.
