- Mary ROWLANDSON, born White, later Mary Talcott, was born in 1637 and died in 1711 (at age 74), is an American and was captured by Native Americans for almost three months. In 1682, six years after her ordeal, she published "The Sovereignty and Goodness of God - Narrative of the Captivity and Restoration of Mrs. Mary Rowlandson." This story is considered a work in the literary genre of captivity narratives. It is one of the first American "best sellers." Around 1650, his family left England and settled in Salem, then in 1653 in Lancaster, Massachusetts. In 1656, she married Reverend Joseph Rowlandson. On February 10, 1675, Lancaster was attacked by Amerindians, 13 were killed and 24 prisoners were taken captive, including Mary and her three children, Joseph, Mary, and Sarah. A week or so later, her 6-year-old daughter Sarah succumbed to her injuries. For three months, Mary and her children were forced to walk through the wilderness in harsh conditions. On May 2, 1676, Mary was released following a ransom. In 1678, his first husband, Mr. Rowlandson died. In 1679, she married Captain Samuel Talcott and took his last name. Mary and her children moved to Boston where she reportedly wrote her captivity story. In 1682, his account of captivity was published in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and in London the same year. - "The Sovereignty and Goodness of God
