Gilbert Narrative

These images are from A Narrative of the Captivity and Sufferings of Benjamin Gilbert and His Family by Frank H. Severence (1904). I could never find it online or in digital copies of the book and it has been torn from the back of our local library’s copy, so now that I have it, I though I would share. Benjamin Gilbert was my great great great great great great great grandfather.
