Abstract:

Few people in colonial America lived a life as eventful or as improbable as that of Mary Musgrove (ca. 1700-1764), one of the most recognizable figures in Georgia history. Born to a Creek Indian mother and an English father, Mary's bicultural heritage prepared her for an eventful adulthood in the rough and tumble world of Georgia Indian affairs. Eventful as it was, Mary's story is also an improbable one. As a literate Christian, a trader, and wife of an Anglican clergyman, Mary was one of a very small number of 'mixed blood' Indians anywhere to achieve a position of such prominence among English colonists.
