Alaqa Taye Gabra Mariam was a native of Kamkam Qaroda, Yifag, in Bagemeder. He was born on the 21st Magabit 1853 B.C. (March 1861) during the reign of Tewodros. His mother died while he was a child and his father had left for Shoa.  It was thus that Taye left his native village for Tigre where his uncle lived. But upon his arrival in Tigre he learnt that his uncle had left for Bombay, India. Taye, therefore, decided to travel to the Red Sea Coast and from there leave for Bombay or for Jerusalem. He arrived in Monkullu about 1880, at the age of twenty, and thus came in contact with the Swedish Mission at Monkullu which was run by Lundahl.  But he was not employed by the Mission in translation and teaching work until 1886. In the 1890’s Alaqa Taye was largely working on his book,  መጽሐፈ ሰዋስው (Matshafa Sawasew) or Grammar Book which was published in Monkullo in 1897
