FLOR500, Garden 432 Polly Parker (Madeloyee), Seminole Leader (ca. 1820–1921) On a U.S. army ship bound for Arkansas in 1858, Polly Parker led a group of twelve Seminoles in a daring escape when the ship docked at St. Marks, so that they could remain in their homeland of Florida. Most made it south through the Everglades and met up with other Seminoles, including her husband, on the west side of Lake Okeechobee.
