Renaming the local natives was not the only way newcomers disrespected the indigenous people. One local paper observed that almost from the time of their arrival in Humboldt County, white settlers “ill-treated and abused… whip and beat the men” as they “ravish [ed]” the women.
Lucy had three children that I know about. Carrie, Lucy’s oldest daughter, was told by an Indian named Billy that Berryman Lack, a white packer, was her father. If true, this means he was “with” Lucy in the summer of 1855. It does not appear that Lack ever lived with Lucy and or maintained contact with Carrie.
This was not unusual. Unfortunately, many native women were “outraged” by white settlers and many “half-breed” children, like Carrie, were the result.
