Larcena Pennington Page
Birth: Jan. 10, 1837
Davidson County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Mar. 31, 1913
Pima County
Arizona, USA

Western Folk Heroine. She was a member of a pioneer family for whom Pennington Street in Tucson, Arizona, was named. Larcena was abducted by Tonto Apaches in 1860. Unable to keep up with her captors, she was stabbed 18 times and left for dead in Madera Canyon. Larcena then crawled through the desert for more than 16 days before finding help and being rescued. The first thing she asked for was a chew of tobacco. She survived the wounds and married John Page who was killed a year later by the Apaches. She then married Judge William F. Scott.  (bio by: Lori Fredona (Tucson))
