The flat lands, streams, and hills of Meemkekak, Great Shawnee Town in English, comprised Mary Tolbert’s childhood playground. She hand-caught crawdads in Sippo’s tranquil waters, belly-flopped atop sled-rails in winter, and raced the winds across the hills.

Four Score and Seven years later, as had Pekowi spirits tied forever to the burning place, Mary Ruth Tolbert passed on to Far Point
from Mount Oval Hill April 29th, 2012.
