Comments about Maria Campbell
Mistupuch he was my granmudder.
He come from Muskeg
dat was before he was a reservation.
My granmudder he was about twenty-eight when he
marry my granfawder.
Dat was real ole for a woman to marry in dem days
But he was an Indian doctor
I guess dats why he wait so long.
Ooh he was a good doctor too
All the peoples dey say dat about him.

He marry my granmudder around 1890.
Dat old man he come to him for doctoring
