THE MACK 5
eomed and protected by a tribe of Wl1lll0b?1g0 Indians.
Ho-no-ne-gah was a faithful and devoted wife. She was large-
ly absorbed in the care of her home and children, save when
sickness of the early settlers called for her kind and skillful care
and attention. Then with her supply of Nature 's remedies, she
would seek out the afflicted and bring sunshine and relief to the
sufferers. The high tribute of respect to Ho-no-ne-gah was gen-
unine and sincere. Although she was an Indian maiden, Ho-no-ne-
gah possessed a noble soul, and did all she could to make those
around her comfortable and happy. Even tl1e poor and the des-
titute around her shared of her provisions in a generous manner.
Only once was she known to assume the garb of her pale face
sisters, and then it was by great solicitation. She felt so ill at
ease and afraid to make 'herself conspicuous, that she laid it aside
and was content with the costume of her tribe. Her taste in
blending colors to have a pleasing effect was fine, and her needle
work was almost perfect. The Pottawatomie tribe felt above the
XVinnebagos in their skill of the needle and Ho-no-ne-gah showed
much ability in this art.
She died in July, 1847, and all those who knew her sorrowed
for the loss of one who had made herself dear to them.
VVith the indications of a. speedy settlement of the Rock
River Valley, Mack conceived the idea that the bluff at the mouth
of the Peeatonica River, would be a good place to locate a town.
Because of the prospect that the Pecatoniea and Rock rivers
were navigable, Mack took possesion of a tract of land at the
mouth of the Pecatonica River, in 1835. The place took the name
of Maektown, which it still retains, although the once flourishing
settlement has entirely disappeared.
Here at this peaceful settlement, Mack resided until his
death in 1850. In many respects he was a remarkable man. What
could have prompted a man of his ability to hide away so many
years from civilization may never be known. How far his aspira-
tions were realized cannot be told, yet he succeeded in being a
man of prominence in his time, and his name will ever be handed
down as a man of many virtues, of strict integrity and of unques-
