  • Notes 
    • When Ingebord's first baby was born, a girl named Martha; the Indians (Souix) were excited about the new arrival. They named Martha the Indian name of Winona for the first girl child; just as later they named her brother Ed, Chuskee for the first boy child's name. Ingebord was tiny and pretty and the Indians liked to watch her work and take care of her little white baby. They would stand in clusters by the windows to peek in. They spread their heavy shawls over the windows in order to be able to see inside better. Ingebord would finally have to motion them away because they shut off so much light and darkened the room.
