Eventually the trail was lost and Rebecca was never heard from again. She was soon declared dead along with both of her sons and no bodies were ever recovered. As part of the treaty, the Natives agreed to return all white hostages they had taken over the years of conflict. One of the hostages returned was a young boy who nobody showed up to claim when they were returned to the white civilization.
With no one to claim him the boy returned to the Native woman who had been acting as his foster Mother. The tribe feared that his presence among them would be considered breaking the treaty so once again the boy was shipped back to the white community. The boy was adopted into the Persinger family and given the name Jacob Persinger Jr although everyone including the boy himself was never convinced he was a member of the family. He once again ran away to live with his Native foster Mother, who hid him from the rest of the tribe to keep him from being sent away again.
Eventually he was again discovered and sent back to the white community never to return to the life he had spent so much time in.
During his life Jacob Jr. He married a white woman and they had a large family raised in the large house he built for his wife.
