Pocahontas43 viewsPoor girl got sick and died in her twenties in England. Was married to John Rolfe who remarried a colonist's daughter and did very well raising tobacco. The story about Pocahontas saving John Smith's life was told years later by John Smith with no witnesses so it is likely not true since he seemed to have lots of such stories involving him and the ladies.
