This young lady was taken captive by the Apache Indians in one of their forays in Sonora, at which time nine persons were killed. She was carried to the country of her savage captors, north of the River Gila, and, after nine months captivity, was rescued by the U.S. Boundary Commission, then under the command of John R. Bartlett, while his party was encamped in the Rocky Mountains, in June 1851. After remaining with the Commission three months she was taken to her parents. [P. 8.]
