Laah Ceil Manatoi Elaah Tubbee

Laah Ceil was born in New York in 1817; treaties for the removal of Delaware Indians led to her family’s relocation to Missouri and ultimately to an area near the Kansas-Missouri border where she met Warner McCary a/k/a Okah Tubbee. Encouraged by Reverend Lewis Allen, a published author and traveling lecturer for the temperance movement, Laah Ceil recorded a narrative of her husband's life in 1848.
