In this letter to George W. Martin, Ida Ferris discusses Sac and Fox members, including Black Hawk, who "was not buried on top of the earth, but in a sitting posture with a seat in the grave so his head came even with the top of the ground," and Keokuk. In addition, Ferris states that Walter Battice could provide Martin with "much information concerning the troubles between the Sacs and Foxes."
