Courtship of John Ridge--While Attenuillng
a blinion School lie Fell in Love
With a Beautiful Pale
Face and Mar.
iragments of Indian history havo
accumulated upon me of late and as
they concern the Creeks and Chero
koos and are of a romantic character,
I am constrained to record them.
These two tribes are our Indians and
make up quite a chapter in the his
tory of Georgia, Alabama and East
Tennessee. North Georgia was es
pecially the home of the Cherokees,
for their chiefs Jived near Rome as
far back as we have their history,
and the Creeks, or Muscogees, as
they are more properly called, lived
south of the Tallapoosa river. Theso
tribes are not to be classed with sav
ages, for they were of a higher grade,
and but for the greed of the white
man would, no doubt, have contin
ued to advance in civilization and
refinement under the lead of such
chiefs as Ross, Ridge, Boudinot and
Everybody is fAmiliar with the
story of Pocahontas.
Longfellow wrote a beautiful story
about Hiawatha, and William E.
Richards penned several pretty leg
ends about the Indian girls of Tallu
lah Falls, and so I will pen the t-tory
of John Ridge and Boudin6t as given
to me. Tnis story was sont to me
by. Mrs. Ellen M. Gibbs, of Crystal
Lake, 1I. Her mother, Mrs. Tay
lor, who died in 1878, wrote this
romantic sketch in 1877, when she
was seventy-six years of ago, and
left it for her children, who had of
ten board her repeat it. By some
strange coincidenco I have recently
received a letter from a lady, Mrs.
Virginia Wi;liams, of Bloomtiold,
Fla., giving the ancestry of John
Ross, whose grandfather was a
Scotch refugee named McDonald.
The writer, Mrs. Williams, traces
her lineage back to the same McDon
ald tree. Her mother was a daugh
ter of William Day, who married
Agnes McDonald. Mrs. Williams
would like to learn more about Ross
and hopes this publication may at
tract the attention of some one who
can inform her.
And now comes a marked copy of
a Now York paper called Sabbath
Reading, in which John Ross, a son
of the old chief appeals for preach
era5 and teachers to come ouit to the
Cherokee Nation and help to educate
and train the childlren in the Chris
tin faith, and especially to teach
them in their Sunday schools. This
appeal is dated j December, 1897,
and Mr. RIo;' address is No. 101
*Gold st reot, Nowv York.
And here is The Vitiita Leider, an
able paper, p)ublishled in the Nation,
.and contains General Andrew Jack
son's letter to the Cherokee chiefs,
written in 1835, and which urges and
-entreats them to accept the terms of
the treaty and move at once to the
territory assigned to them.
And almost by the same mail

But to the story
"In 1817 a foreign mission school
wvas established at Cornwall, Conn.
It was a chai-ity school for Indians
mainily though there were some white
pupils there and some defrayed their
own expenses. Students from sev
eral Indian tribes were there to iac
.quiro the F.nglish language and a
rudi mont ary education. Somne wvhite
\p ipda: also acquired the Indiani Ian
~~ungo and went out as missionaries
to the t ribes. Besides the Chsippe
was and Choctaws and Cherokees, I
remember there were two from the
"Mr. Daggott was tho first princi
pal of the school and Mr. Andrews
the last. Every May there was a
public exhibition and the Indian
boys spoke on the stago, first in their
own language and then in ours. They
were genteel and graceful in their
oratory. They sang .4ongs in their
native tongue, all waving their handt,
in harmony with the music. They
wore never allowed to go I 3yond the
limits or into )e)ple's houses without
invitation. When they visited us
we laid aside our work and outer
"Among thoso students was a
Cherokee youth named John Ridge,
the son of sa chief-a very noble
young man, of fine form and feature,
and a perfect gentleman in his man
ners and deportmt4nt. For two years
he was afilicted with a hip disease.
While he boarded at Mrs. Northrup's
and Mrs. Northrup had caro of him,
s>motimes her daughter Sarah, a
sweet and lovely girl, waited upon
him. One (lay Dr. Gould, who was
my cousin, said -to Mr. Northrup:
'John is about well. He has no
physical disease about him and needs
no more medicine, but be is in
trouble and you had better find out
what is the matter.'
"That afternoon while Sarah was
away her mother took her knitting
and went to sit and talk with John.
While there she took notico of his
melancholy an(d bogged him to tell
her what troubled him so much of
late. At first he denied having any
sorrow, but boing pressed, told her
that he loved Sarah and knew that
ho could never imarry her, for lie was
an Indian. 'Hiave you over ni -
tioned it to Sarah?' she asked. 'No,
said he, 'but how could I belp loving
"When Sarah camo homo,hor moth
or said: 'Sarah, do you lovo John
Ridgo?' 'Yes, I do, mother.' Then
cane the family trouble. Mr. Nor
thrup at once took Sarah to her
grandparents in Now IHaven and
begged them to wean Sarah from her
Indian lover-to give parties and
introduce her to nico young men,
which they did, but. it was all in
vain. She remained there three
months, and seemed to be pining
away in silent grief. Her parents
became alarmed and brought her
home. What wias to be (on, for it
would be an awful thing for Sarah
to marry him. As a last resort Mr.
Northrup told John Ridgo to go
home and stay two years and if lie
got entirely well he might come
back and marry Sarah. He did so,
and wvhen thme time was out came
back accompanied by his father,
Major Ridge, the chief of the Cbero
kees. Thecy traveled ill princel y
style and were handsomely dIressed.
I remember that Maj. R11idgo's coat.
wvas trimmed wvithI gold lace.
"John and Sarah woero married
and went to tbo Cherokee niation to
live, but not as missionarimes, for
John had to visit Washington quite
often to tr-ansact business for the
tribe. Sarah had si rvanits to wit
upon her and lived like a princess ini
a large two-story dwvelling.
"Not long after this the little towni
of Cornwall hiad another tumult and
great excitement came into its sociail
life. There was fever heat wvhen it
was announced that Elias Boudinot,
who was John Ridge's cousin, wvas
to marry Harriet Gould, the fairest
and best educated girl ini all that ro
gion. She wvas the nearest per-fec
tion of any girl I ever know. She
was the idol of t ' falmily. Her
brothern aind sisters had all marr-ied

children woro born to them. Colo
nel Gould visitel them there and
was well pleased with their sur

girls had chosen imost excellent hus
bands and had not. regretted their

removal to the territory, in 1838,

giving birth to the last. Boudmnot

Harriet's cousin and she went to the
territory with him. After his assas
sination, she returned to Cornwall
and the children wont with her and
were distributed among their moth
or's kindred and were highly edu
cated and mingled in social e(uality
with the white people."
The remainder of the narrativo as
written by Mrs. Taylor and copied
for me by Mrs. Gibbs, relates to the
story of the assassination of Major
Ridge and John Ridge and Elias
Boudinot, of which I have told your
readers in a former letter and will
not repeat it now. Boudinot's real
Indian name was Kelle koo-nah, but
while at school at Cornwall he at
tracted the attention of Elias Boudi
not, a Philadelphia philanthropist.
who adopted him and gave him his
name and left Limi a large legacy
in his will. His son, Elias C. Boud

nation. He wa; born in Vann's Val
