There Mary was purchased by Indian hunters who took her to Kentucky. Mary was able to escape into the forest and found her way back to Ohio and later in mid-winter she arrived home to be reunited with her family.

Her story, based on records kept by early settlers, is the subject of a popular novel, Follow the River, by James Alexander Thom.
