Sarah Masterson Bragdon was taken captive by Abenaki Indians during the Candlemas Day Massacre in Maine.
From family notes, it seems that her small child was taken with her. She was released almost ten years later, seven months pregnant.
It's been said that she became the love interest for a Prince Waxaway (sp?)and that she had becomed quite accustomed to the Indian way of life.
Shortly after her return to York, Maine, she was charged with "fornication" and having a "bastard child",(go figure!)I discovered these records on a search online not too long ago!
I did find a line of descent through her daughter Hannah, but I would like to find more about the child(ren) other than Hannah, and if Sarah remarried, etc after her court ordeal. I'd like to learn all I can about her and her life.
If anyone has any info, or knows where to find it, I would appreciate hearing from them.
