http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anne_Hutchinson

Susanna's father, William Hutchinson died in 1642, soon after his resignation, and the widow Anne decided to leave Portsmouth, along with some of her family and some followers. The group went to Pelham Bay, then part of New Netherland, the Dutch possession which now is the Bronx in New York City. During this time the local Indians were fighting with the Dutch, and in 1643 she and all of her family who followed her except her youngest daughter were killed there by a group of Indians who came calling in a friendly manner, and then suddenly turned on their unsuspecting victims. The Hutchinsons had been friendly to them but the native Americans had been subject to much mistreatment by the ruling Dutch and rampaged the New Netherland colony in a series of incidents known as Kieft's War. They killed the Hutchinson residents, put all their possessions in the house, including animals, and set the house afire. The youngest Hutchinson, Susanna, was taken captive and lived with the Indians until ransomed by her family members who stayed in the Bay Colony. It is said that she did not want to leave her captors. In 1651 she married John Cole and they started a farm in Rhode Island beginning a long line of descendants.


Susanna supposedly captured and temporarily adopted by Indians after her mother and siblings were killed.


Susanna, was taken captive and lived with the Indians until ransomed by her family members who stayed in the Bay Colony. It is said that she did not want to leave her captors. In 1651 she married John Cole and they started a farm in Rhode Island beginning a long line of descendants. 

Susanna Hutchinson - Indian Captive Susanna Hutchinson was born on 15 Nov 1633 in Alford, Lincolnshire, England. She was the youngest child of William Hutchinson and Anne Marbury. In 1634, Susanna's family emigrated to the Massachusetts Bay Colony where they lived in Boston.


Susanna's mother, Anne Hutchinson, is considered one of the founders of Rhode Island because she and her followers founded a settlement in Aquidneck, Rhode Island. They fled to Rhode Island after Anne was convicted of heresy by a Puritan court for her religious beliefs and banished from Massachusetts by Governor John Winthrop "as a woman not fit for our society." After her husband, William Hutchinson, died in 1642, Anne moved the family and some of her followers to a wooded area in Pelham Bay, Long Island then part of New Netherlands a Dutch colony which is now The Bronx in New York City.


At the time there was a war going on between the Dutch colonists and the Lenape Indians. The Lenape Indians had been subject to alot of mistreatment from the Dutch and they began rampaging through the New Netherlands Colony in what was known as Kieft's War. In 1643, Anne and all of her family and followers except nine year old Susanna were massacred by Lenape warriors. After they killed the Hutchinson residents the Lenape warriors put all their possessions, including animals, in the house and set it on fire.


Susanna was spared because of her red hair which the Lenape Indians had never seen before. Susanna was adopted into the Lenape tribe and given the name Mee-pahk which means Pretty Leaf or Autum Leaf. She lived with the Lenape about four years. At the end of the war, Susanna was ransomed back by the Dutch and returned unwillingly (as she had come to love her Indian family) back to Boston where she married John Cole a few years latter on 30 Dec 1651.


A book entitled "Troubles Daughter," by Katherine Kirkpatrick is a fictional account based on the true-life abduction of Susanna Hutchinson by the Lenape Indians. The book is an impelling story of Susanna's evolution from a hostile frightened prisoner to a member of the tribe and through her transition back to the white society of Boston. Initially, Susanna rages against her captors and resists the customs she considers cruel and savage. As Susanna gradually develops an understanding of their ways, she struggles to reconcile her growing affection for her adopted Lenape family with the love for the family they murdered. Susanna draws on the strenght of the memories of her mother, Anne Hutchinson, a strong-willed and outspoken leader of the 17th-century. When arrangements are made to trade her back to her white family, she does not wish to leave the Place of Stringing Beads. Kirkpatrick spins a wonderful heart-felt story about a young girl grappling with universal and complex issues.


Carried off to live with Indians on August 20 1643
