Gilbert 'Gil' Martin, a civilized man from the East coast colonies, finds himself a loving bride,
Magdelana 'Lana', and takes her West to start a homestead in the Mohawk Valley (in Upstate New York).

instigated by the British, their home and belongings go up in flames, Lana looses their baby.
Destitute they move and find a wealthy old widow, who is happy to put them up in her fine estate
