Chief April Rushlow (April St. Francis-Merrill)
April Rushlow is mentioned on our Abenaki website and several of the articles we link to as an Abenaki chief.
This is still true as of 2012. However, she has since remarried, so her full name is now April St. Francis-Merrill
("St. Francis" is her maiden name, and "Merrill" is her husband's name.) Since her name was April Rushlow at
the time she became chief of her tribe (the St. Francis/Sokoki Abenaki Band), we have not changed it on the
historical article we have on our website.
