Kenton: adopted to replace a slain son. "You are no more a white man but an Indian and a brother." Kenton later told an interviewer: "They say when a man comes among a parcel of people that are harsh to him, and they moderate towards him, he will be more attached to them, and I believe it." Kenton was not remade into an Algonquian, but adoption tempered his Indian hating. 20 years later, Indian families lived on Kenton's land, and his old captor Bonah visted him and ate at his table. When asked why he allowed this, Kenton replied that now it was peace, and what Bonah had done was an act of war. Later Kenton faced down Indian-haters who sought to murder the Indians who lived with him. Quoted in Edna Kenton, SIMON KENTON: HIS LIFE AND PERIOD, 1755-1836 (Garden City: Doubleday, Doran, 1930):123, 124.
