AUGUST 25 MEETING: The Story of Larcena Pennington Page Scott

LarcenaPenningtonPageShirley Pinkerton, in period costume portraying The Story of Larcena Pennington Page Scott, was the guest speaker at the August meeting.

“Captured by Tonto Apache Warriors in March of 1860, severely wounded, thrown down a cliff, and left for dead in the Santa Rita Mountains, Larcena crawled in the snow for sixteen days during her escape.  Though she survived her ordeal and lived until the age of 76, she lost two sisters to diseases, and her husband was killed the next year by an Apache band.”

Long time Arizona resident, Shirley Pinkerton is the president of the Docent Council of the Arizona Historical Society Southern Division. In addition to historical re-enactments, Shirley gives tours in Tucson dressed in period costumes.
