About Anne Eve/Eva Empey (Merckle), U.E.L.

Anne had a sister Christina and a brother Henry

I read that Anne lived 93 years, I show her at 87 years of age at death. Oldest Loyalists at Time of Death

Anne and Christina were captured by Indians during the " Raid of 1789". They were taken to Canada and traded to Squaws for 2 gallons of Rum. [http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~merkley/pafn02.htm]
Anne was estimated to be 15 years of age at the time of her and her siblings capture.
Their release was negotiated by the family of Sir William Johnson.
