Ginette Lantelme in Taichung

She died mysteriously, falling overboard and drowning while on a cruise on the Rhine on her husband’s yacht. She was buried in the Edwards mausoleum and would have probably faded into obscurity except that a newspaper story reported that she had been buried with her jewels and the tomb was broken into. The thieves found no jewels but the press widely covered the story and postcards were made of the police investigating the break-in. The postcards were widely circulated, thus preserving her memory. On June 5, 1919 Ginette Lantelme’s remains were transferred to a simple tomb in Division 94. The speculation is that the transfer was made at the behest of Edwards’ sixth wife, Gabrielle Colonna-Romano.

The Tuscarora War was the defining event of the tribe’s history in the colonial period. Taichung Map The Tuscarora succeeded in terrorizing the English and Germans of North Carolina, killing 130 of them in the initial attack. North Carolina, essentially paralyzed by fear the colony already had a relatively weak military asked Virginia and South Carolina for help. South Carolina responded by immediately sending an army of 500 Native Countrys, mainly Yamasees, under the command of John Barnwell into Tuscarora country, where they burned several of the main towns, killing men and enslaving women and children.

The main Tuscarora force held out, though it was weakened significantly when Tom Blount, the accommodationist leader of the Northern Tuscarora, chose the English side in the conflict. He betrayed King Hancock, the Southern Tuscarora leader, to the English, who killed him. In 1713, South Carolina sent an army of 1,200 Native Countrys under the command of James Moore to finish the job. Starving and powerless, the Tuscarora abandoned their homeland. A treaty was signed in 1715, officially ending the war.
