Fannie Kelly.

Mrs. Fannie Kelly, of Kansas, praying compensation for Indian spoliations and for injuries resulting from her captivity among the Indians, having been captured July 12, 1864, west of Fort Laramie. In 1864, she was able to give information to Captain James L. Fisk, who was in charge of a train crossing the plains and to Major House who was in command of Fort Sully, and by giving this information she saved the fort from a massacre, for her valuable service she was given five thousand dollars.

Authors note. If any one as additional information on her I would like to hear about it. My address can be found in my profile.
