Below is a CDV from my collection for your enjoyment. It is signed by Oatman on the back.
Olive Oatman (1838-1903) was abducted while
traveling to California with her family in 1851. Yavapai Indians attacked them
and five of the family were killed. The only survivors were Lorenzo, Olive, and
Mary Ann Oatman. Lorenzo was left for dead, but recovered and reached Casas Grandes.
The Yavapai Indians traded the sisters to the Mojave, where they were adopted
by a chief. In 1856 the army found out about Olive and traded for her, but Mary
Ann had died earlier of disease. Soon after her return, a pastor named Royal B.
Stratton wrote a best-selling biography about Oatman titled Life Among the
Indians, and donated the royalties to fund her education at the University of
the Pacific, where she was one of the first female students.
