Aksiáka was born about 1816. She was the daughter of Mąkskaga White Breast.
The name Onck-say-onc-ah fits Aksiáka quite well. The word aksiáka otherwise denotes a tame or dead bear. As a birth order name, it denotes the third born female.
"[There] personally appeared Abraham Rasdell a white man aged thirty two years, who being duly sworn according to Law doth depose and say that about the fifteenth day of December 1834 he was married with Onck say onc ah a full Blood Winnebago woman daughter of Monk skaw kah & Hopink ah according to Indian custom‘ That he has one Child named Cain a Son begotten on the body of said Onck say onc ah that was three years old the fifteenth day of Jany last. that said child is smart and active, and residing with deponant at Four Lakes [in] the Wisconsin Territory. and deponant further says that on or about the first of March 1837, he was married according to the Indian custom to Naw waw chock wink ah sister to the said 0nc say onc ah and daughter of the aforesaid Indians—That he has one child named Sarah Ann a daughter begotten on the body of the said Naw waw chock wink ah said child was born Jany 22nd 1838 that said child is smart and active and residing at present with this deponant & its mother." 21 Sept. 1838 (Waggoner, 22b)
Tragically, she died at a young age when her child was an infant. (Waggoner 22b) Butterfield (382) gives us the details: "He married a Winnebago woman by whom he had three children. She was a real help-meet to him in the Indian trade, but, accompanying him to Fort Winnebago at some Indian payment there, she sickened and died of small-pox, Rasdall alone attending her and burying her remains. He had been vaccinated when young, and did not take the disease."
