On April 5, 1614, Native American Pocahontas marries English colonist John Rolfe in Virginia. The time and pace they were married is both notable and clouded in a lack of information. This is what makes books like Written in Bone: Buried Lives of Jamestown and Colonial Maryland by Sally M. Walker so useful. The book is short and uses the colonial-era graves near Jamestown, Virginia, and in Maryland to break down the stories of those who remain there.
