A Story

By Granddaughter, Wandanell Walsh Hopkins

When she was about five years old, there was some unrest with the Indians in the area. Whatever the cause, everyone in the area was at Cove Fort, because they thought that an attack was imminent.

Everyone that is, but little Nellie.

Everyone was frantically searching for her when they saw a group of peaceful looking Indians coming toward the fort. My grandma was being carried by the local chief in his arms.

It turned out that she had walked with her crutch, down to the Indian camp to play with the children there and had been singing songs to the chief. It had softened his heart, and he no longer wanted to make trouble with the settlers.
