Missionary and first White woman to cross the Rockies on the Oregon Trail, Narcissa is pictured after the death of her only child Alice Clarissa Whitman age 2½ who drowned near their mission at Walla Walla, Washington June 23, 1839. Quotes from her letter summarize this story. Dr. Marcus Whitman could not revive the child and in her sorrow Narcissa turned “to the promise of Gods holy word” saying “Thy will be done, not mine.”
