In Reply to: Metacom's children by David Jerrett of 143

Hello Mr. Jerrett,

Sadly, all of the texts I have read refer to only one child ~ a son who was deported as a slave and never heard from again. There are many books that cover Metacom and his family. LePore's "In the Name of War," Bodge's "Soldiers in King Philip's War," Leach's "Flintlock and Tomahawk."

There are many others including several first hand accounts. Let me know if you need the names of more resources. The ones I've listed are the best in my opinion. It's a controversial subject, so I'm sure others would disagree with me.

I also refer you to my own book in which Metacom's family is featured. It is called "MASSACRE: Daughter of War" and follows both a Native and a Colonial family. See for more on that.

Best wishes,
Danielle Skjelver
