Susanna is harboured and adopted by an Algonquin family. She assimilates and marries into the tribe becoming the aunt of Ikwesens Pinesi Kijikokwe.

Their marriage is certified by Reverend Barnley on July 3, 1842, and Isabella is overwhelmed with the expectations required from the Hudson's Bay Company.
