Abstract:
Lorenzo D. and Olive Ann Oatman, brother and sister, traveled with their family in 1850 across the Plains. While encamped on the Gila River,they were attacked by Indians who killed most of the family, left Lorenzo for dead, and took Olive and her sister Mary into captivity. Although Mary died in captivity, Olive was eventually ransomed and joined her brother in 1857.
