Rebecca Kellogg Ashley, 1695-1757: From Deerfield to Onaquaga is a unique account of the part-Indian children of captives Joanna and Rebecca Kellogg. Rebecca was born in New England, grew up and had children in New France (Canada), returned to the English colonies as an adult in 1727 and lived in Massachusetts. She was identified as the first white woman in Broome County, died in New York and was buried at Windsor (aka Onaquaga), New York.  Her simple stone calls her “Wausaunia.” She was interpreter to missionaries in 1748 and 1753.  Her five sons were born in Canada to a part-Indian father and four married Delaware Indians; the fifth married a Mohawk Indian.
