Soon afterwards she married a half-breed(1791-1793) and had a son called "Indian Jack" who later took the name of Prewitt by consent of Valentine Prewitt, relative of Ford and Maxey families.Mary married (2) Little Turtle (Mishikinakwa) 1795. When he died near Laporte, Indiana, she returned to her family in KY with her son, Jack.Mr. Wycoff, a young man, had been a captive of the Indians since childhood from the massacre which took place at Cherry Valley, NY during the Revolution.He had seen Polly in the Miami camp and followedd her to KY.Later they were married and living in Shelby County, KY in 1819. AAnother reference says she married in 1805, John Prewitt as his second wife).
Also same page , Anna Ford married Thomas Coy, son of Christopher. She was born 1766 and married June 30, 1800.As a young girl she, with her half sister, Mary (Polly) Ford and a cousin, Elizabeth Maxey, was captured at the Crab Orchard Massacre by Miami Indians.Her first husband was an Indian.

Brother Obadiah (Obe) Ford was killed by Indians at Crab Orchard, KY when they found him hiding in a tree during the McNutt and Ford Massacre, which took place Oct. 3, 1786.
Hope some of this might help.
