Sorry to start up on a long-past subject, but I just ran across this post while running searches on some ancestors.
In a message from Sue (Howard) Wilkerson on Feb. 20, 1998, there was a request to send you info on Mary Ann Enochs & Joseph Wilford. These two names are paired in genalogical recollections by way of my maternal grandmother and passed to my sibs and me by my mother. According to her, this Joseph Wilford was the son of the Joseph Wilford who was married to Mary Campbell. According to my mother this Mary Campbell was taken captive by Indians in Pennsylvania about 1757 when she was about 7 years of age. She remained with them until 1764 at which time she was found at a place named "Chillicothe" and bought back by provincial troops under a Col. "Boquet."
I have recently found that there is historical record of her ordeal, and at least two books for young people have been written about this part of her life (_Beaded Mocasins: The Story of Mary Campbell_, [don't know the author]; and _Song of Courage, Song of Freedom_ by Marilyn Seguin). I haven't had a chance to read either of them yet but look forward to seeing how they tell the story.
If anyone has more info or documentation on Mary Ann Enochs & Joseph Wilford, I would appreciate your pointing me to it.
