Hester Ingersoll

b. 1652, d. 27 November 1705
     Hester Ingersoll was also known as Esther Ingersoll. She was born in 1652 at Hartford, Hartford Co., CT. She was the daughter of John Ingersoll and Abigail Bascom. Hester Ingersoll married William Gurley in 1684. Hester Ingersoll married Benoni Jones. Hester Ingersoll died on 27 November 1705 at Montreal, Québec, Canada.

from the NEHGS Electronic Newsletter, June 13, 2003, by Deborah Southworth Sweet of New City, New York:


Hester and Benoni started a small settlement, called Pascommuck, at the north end of Mt. Tom, in Northampton, Massachusetts, with a few other related families. Hester and Benoni had four children. The Jones house was the most fortified in the settlement, and so, on May 13, 1704, most of the settlers were there when the Indians attacked and set the house on fire, driving everyone out into the open. Hester no doubt witnessed the deaths of her husband Benoni and two of her young sons, Ebenezer and Jonathan, and the scalping of another son Benjamin (who survived).


Hester and two others were forced by their captors to walk to Montréal, Québec, where she eventually came to the l'Hotel Dieu, a hospital run by the Hospitaliers of St. Joseph, a group of Catholic nuns. Hester took ill and was cared for there by the good sisters, who quite naturally for the time, had conversion to Catholicism as a prime objective. However it is said that Hester kept to her faith until the end, only agreeing to convert on her deathbed after being promised that if she recovered she would be sent home. She died on Nov. 27, 1705, and was buried in the churchyard there.
