In 1857 Daisy Low's father , W. W. Gordon married Eleanor (Nelly) Lytle Kinzie (1835-1917) of Chicago, daughter of John Harris and Juliette Augusta Magill Kinzie (1806-1870). Juliette (Daisy's grand mother) was the author of The Chicago Massacre, first published in 1844 and later incorporated into her Wau-Bun (1856), which Nelly edited and published again in 1901 and 1912. Nelly also edited The Chicago Massacre for republication in 1912 as The Fort Dearborn Massacre. Nelly wrote Rosemary and Rue (1907) in memory of her daughter Alice and John Kinzie, the "Father of Chicago" (1910).
Daisy was always jumping into new games, hobbies and ideas. Another one of her nicknames was "Little Ship". She acquired this nickname while living with her maternal grandparents in Chicago during the Civil War. Her grandfather, John Kinzie, was an Indian agent and young Juliette often played with Indian children. Juliette loved to hear the story about her great-grandmother, Eleanor Lytle Kinzie, who was captured by Indians. Even though she was a captive, she was always joyful, so the Indians started calling her "Little-Ship-Under-Full-Sail".
Teen Scouts and adults alike will be facinated by the story in Little Ship Under Full Sail by Janie Lynn Panagopoulos
