While sailing across the Atlantic with her parents, family, and fellow immigrants,
the prevailing winds died leaving the ship stranded and with a dwindling food supply. The travelers decided to cast lots to see who would be sacrificed for food. Twelve year old Mary's name was drawn, but because of her beauty and age, the group could not bring itself to carry out the plan. Again, lots were drawn and Mary's name appeared. After a night of prayer, a ship arrived the next daybringing supplies, thus ended the terrible ordeal and sparing Mary's life.
