1 thought on “Seneca Indian Towns and Villages”

  1. I am trying to find out information about my Grandmother. She was born Feb 4, 1903. Her name was Mary Elizabeth The only information I have is that she was born to a Seneca Indian mother who died and so her father adopted the children out – because he was not able to care for them. Mary Elizabeth was adopted by Henry and Nettie Swarteslander in Franklin, Pennsylvania. I have not been able to find her birth name – or parents names. Any help is appreciated.
