Polly Parker

Posted By Emmanuel Ochoa, Thursday, December 5, 2013
Polly Parker also known as madeloyee to Seminoles was a very physically and mentally strong woman. Before the end of the Seminole wars she was captured and soon to be deployed to a foreign land away from her husband and everyone she knew. There have been many instances through our history of people who have turned into heroes in rough times. For the most part it's always men who play the role of the strong and more athletic if you will in order to get out of certain situations. The one thing Ms.Parker had compared to those men were brains and she was in tune with her surroundings and knew how to plan her escape. She loved nature and where she lived and of course lived a very healthy life which is why she lived to be 100. Her story is very inspirational again because of the fact that she loved the land she lived in and the people she lived with as well and paid full respect to nature and everyone else around her.
