About Mary Ellen Jacobs

Mary Ellen was a child of nine years when she accompanied the family in its removal by immigrant train across the plains from the state of Indiana. That party was distant only a three-days' journey from the historic Whitman massacre in the Blue Mountains, one of the most appalling events in the early history of the west. Mrs. Jacobs had an intimate friendship with General Phil Sheridan, and General Ulysses S. Grant while they were both young lieutenants stationed at different posts in Oregon, engaged in protecting the early pioneers from Indian depredations. Both the officers were frequent guests in the home of General Joel Palmer.
