    According to Flanders (2000), "Jane Sandusky, was purported to be of Indian descent. This a tradition in the family, however there has never been a tribe of Sandusky Indians in the region of New England she was found in. However, there has not been enough evidence found to refute it either. She may have been the daughter of a French trapper, who were known to be coming down the St. Lawrence during this period. There is some belief that her name was some corruption of the French name of Saint Estr'ees; also the indications of her nervous, excitable temperament, given in the old court records, incline one to this belief. A ready tongue, together with no hesitancy to use it, were attributes that could not pass unrecorded in a community of Puritans, who tolerated nothing. That Jane possessed these attributes cannot be doubted, after reading the old court records. The offenses for which she was charged was commonplace and an everyday occurence in New England during this period. The lives of constant struggle against hardships of deprivations and the constant harshness of the Puritan code, coupled with the cultural and language differences Jane experienced, would account for much of the discord with her neighbors. Therefore, it isn't easy to judge her harshly for the misdemeanors she was charged with.
