Ann Blygh’s fear of the Indians

Ann Blygh is my 3rd Great-grandmother.  She did brave things.

Hazel Garner tells a story which had been handed down in the Barker family that Ann was much afraid of her numerous, scantily clothes and half-starved Indian neighbors when she first arrived at Mound Fort. She felt that the first thing to do was to make friends, but of course, she couldn’t communicate with them because she could not talk their language. As she stood by her wagon viewing the situation, she was suddenly given the “gift of tongues””and was able to talk to them in their own language. This experience made a bond of good will between them that lasted through the years.
