Biographical/Historical note

Nancy Osborne Jacobs was a survivor of the 1847 killings at the Whitman Mission, generally referred to as the "Whitman Massacre." She was nine years old at the time. On May 29, 1912, she read a paper at the Pioneer Reunion at Walla Walla, first relating memories of her family's overland journey in 1845 from Henderson County, Illinois to several different settlements in present-day Washington and Oregon, and then her recollections of the events at the Whitman Mission at Waiilatpu on November 29, 1847.
