My great-grandmother was said to be a Blackfoot Indian who lived in Caswell County, NC @1860-1925. Her last name was Hatchett, but he was the owner of the farm she worked on in the kitchen. Of course I feel there was more to it than meets the eye, but that's all I have for now.
Additionally, I noticed that Williamson is a common name for Blackfoot Indians in that region. The rest of my relatives had the Williamson last name.
If anyone has a possible connection, email me please.
Thanks,
Vic

Some of my surnames are:

Griffin, Blevins, Ward, Green, Markland, Barber

Rudder, Coyle, Ensor, Kincaid, Craig, Kessinger

Most of them came from England, Wales or Scotland to VA to KY. Some of them however, were already here and they're the ones I'm focusing on now.

Don't know how I overlooked this thread, but here are some of my surnames:

Dad's side: WALLER, MAYO, BRAXTON, KEY, SMITH, COOKE, PRYOR, HOLMES, ROYE/ROSS/BOYCE?, LEE, YOUNG, KEY, CONWAY, LAW(e)S, STREET, MORRIS, JACKSON.....just some direct lines

(The majority of Dad's side come from the Northern Neck of Virginia: King William/King&Queen, Charles City, Essex, Gloucester and Middlesex Counties. Also from Edgecombe and Chowan Co. NC)

Mom's side: GREEN, WHITING, COOK(E), RICHARDSON, HARRIS, JONES, KING....to name a few direct lines. I have to do much more research on her side. To my knowledge Mom's people were centralized in Gloucester Co VA.

Maybe later I will list some indirect family surnames including LOCKLEY, REED, REDMOND, WHITE, JENKINS, and possibly GAINES....as soon as I find the "ties that bind".:)

I thought I had posted to this thread before, but looking back, I guess not.

At any rate, the surnames I am interested in are:
Maternal: McCRAW, TAYLOR, SMITH
(Pulaski, Montgomery, Carroll, Floyd, and surrounding areas of VA, out of NC. Taylor relatives were Cherokee who went up the NRV, and this line is all a huge mess. Lots of avoiding records all around.)
WICKLINE, WISEMAN, CROSIER/CROZIER, STEELE, MILLER
(from Monroe Co. WV and Giles/Craig Co. VA)

Paternal:
MULLINS, FLEMING, TACKETT/TACKITT, STUMBO/STAMBACH, OSBORN(E), BOLLING, JOHNSON
(KY/WV coalfields, many from NC via VA)
SHRADER, FRENCH, PRUETT, COBURN, KINSER, WOHLFORD, CARVER
(around Bland Co. VA, via Montgomery Co. VA)

Stepfather:
WHITE (from Southside VA, just over NC border), MORGAN (Shenandoah Valley)

I actually put off moving my records a bit too long and lost most of them in a house fire back in VA before Christmas, so it's kind of slow going at the moment.

Hi Becky,

Thanks for your help. I have been trying to find some addtional info to give to you.

My understanding from some of the family members, Virginia is a possiblility from

which the Richardson may have live first. I do not know the cty. I have just

realize in the last few month that I had a stepgggrandmother(arnell, Arnetta,

Armetta, Annette/BD Sept 1874) and she was not the same person as

gggrandmother Rebecca Olive/1850. This name Stewart is new to me.


Alice/Alisey Montague is my gggrandmother. No one knows if she was married or

not. I came across info (must search again) Addie Montague great

grandmother's father is unknown.


All I know for sure is that Richardson were from Apex/Chatham Cty by way of

maybe Virginia. Montague were living in Wake Cty-Wake Forest, NC and still there

when the ladies married Richardson. The Clacks (Ben Clacks married Fannie

Persons) were from Wake Cty, however, there is a Royster in here someway, but,

I am not sure yet and I may not get to know. I am sure this info is vague, all I

have right now. Thanks so much.

Hello,
It's been a long while since I've been to this site. As a matter of fact, it was a few computers ago. I am so glad I found this forum again!

My surnames are paternal; HOBBS, SADLER/SADDLER, BEVANS, PACK, ESTEP, STEWART, YELLEY/YELEY, GIBSON, OLBERT/ALBERT

maternal; ADKINS, GILLUM, ISOM, FRALEY, and more ADKINS, COLEMAN
(I have been a little negligent on the ADKINS lines because I have been so obsessed with my HOBBS and SADLER/SADDLER lines.)

When I first came to this site I asked about Cherokee/Blackfoot in Grandpa HOBBS family and have since learned a great deal from reading the posts on here. I'm no closer to figuring out which ancestor he was speaking of, but I think the migration paths I've been reading about is going to be key in getting what I'm looking for.

Dear Tia,

On the 1870 US Census,Albemarle CO,VA,Howardsville,Pg2,there's a 2 yr old boy named Marcellus Booker in the household of Richard (ancestry.com has
it as "Richel") and Malvina/Mulvina Nightingale.

I don't know the relationship of Marcellus to them.

Richard (b.1831) and Malvina Nightingale were my g-g-g grandparents.

Does this help?

Wow! Looking at your picture reminds me of a cousin on my Sadler side. Her name is Charlotte and she gets the 'prettiest in the family' vote!

On my Adkins line I can go back to

Howard Adkins m. Mary Ann? Coleman.

Owen Adkins m. Fanny Pruitt, I think.

William Joseph m. Eliza Jane Ann Waggoner.

David Adkins m. Victoria Adkins.

William Joseph Adkins m. Nancy Sue Gillum.

I can't remember Victoria Adkins' father, but she and David shared Howard as a great grandfather.

Mary (Molly) Saddler m. John Anderson in either Greenup Kentucky or Scioto County, Ohio, divorced and married Ben Adkins. I don't know Ben's line.

Molly Saddler descends from Samuel Sadler and Nancy Gibson of VA. At least I think she was from VA.

My husband is descended from Lincoln Sparks of Lawrence County, KY and Nancy Sparks. I think their common ancestor is their grandfather. Lincoln had two wives and two very large families. These Sparks come up from NC to KY. There are Boggs, Nickell, Edwards and Salyer in this tree. Aubrey Nickell/Nichol married Anthony Brooks Hackney of Morgan or Fleming County, KY. She was my husband's aunt, his mother's sister.

Hi Joyce,

Thanks, we have many names in common...Gibson, Anderson, Sparks and Hackney, I have to believe they are tied somewhere. My family lived/s in Tazewell/Buchanan, VA; Floyd, Pike, Perry and Pulaski KY; and Orange (and other) NC counties; prior to 1750 they were in Va again.:)

Hello Everyone, wow it's been almost a year since I've been here. I'm sorry I've waited so long to come back but I gave up my searching for a while. I'm still interested in finding out all I can about any Davis or Thomas from Va. Preferably from the Halifax area. My grandfather was Giles Davis who married Gracie Thomas. Their 2 children were my aunt Ellen Davis Dickerson Dean and my father Robert Jordan (pronounced Jerden) Algie Davis. My father passed on in 1989 as far as I know my aunt is still alive and living in Bullock NC. My father was supposedly named after all of his uncles. I do not know if those men were Davis or Thomas. Any help would be appreciated.

Beeleaf, the wife of my ancestor Thomas Glasscock was probably named Elizabeth Ross, known as Betsy. She was supposed to have been full blood native american. We know little else about her. Only that after their marriage they lived in the Red Bank district of Halifax County, Va.
Is there a listing of surnames for the Ani-Stohini/Unami anywhere and would it go back in the past any significant distance ? Ed

04-16-2007, 10:13 AM
Hey Ed,

A fellow named Ross Chappell has written a book on the Ross family in Virginia (Hanover County, etc.). I haven't sprung for it yet, but now that I'm thinking aobut it again, maybe it's time. Hope it's ok to post the link:
http://www.rossbook.com/
There is a chapter on one Elizabeth "Betsy" Ross.


I don't know of a surname list for the Ani-Stohini Unami tribe. I would sure love to find one, though! I just know of Charles Thomas and his wife Misty Dawn. Thomas is one of my surnames, so it stands out to me. But, it was not an uncommon name, of course.

Amongst my other surnames, I have:

Gibson side of the family
Gibson = Ky (family older than dirt there), Tn, Va (again, older than dirt), Possibly Northumberland, England/Scotland
They married into:
Bryant/Polley (Watkins, Harris, Baker)
Jeffers/Jeffcoat
Gatliff (Walker, Wilcoxin, Boone, Morgan, Jones)
Finley (Martin), (Doak, Patterson, Jennings, Mackie, Craigie, Smyth)
Roark(e), Garett, Allen, South/Bouth

Logan = Ky, Ireland, Scotland
They married into:
Taylor, Farris, Ward, Eaton(?), Duke (Byrd, Horsmanden), Blakely, Richmont,

Meeks,Lincoln, Wayne, Knox Cos., KY;Amherst, Stafford, York, Henrico, and Prince William, VA
They married into:
Wright (two branches), Calhoun, Peyton/Payton, East, Bussell/Russell, Ellis, Harding, Hawkins, Underwood, Edwards, Hill, Puryor/Pryor

And this is just my Dad's side of the family!!!!!!!!! His Logan/Meeks side of the family is where we are supposedly Blackfoot/Saponi. Dad's Bryant Grandmother is also supposedly half Cherokee. The only proof I know of is some pictures Dad's mother has of her family - personal pictures that look a LOT like the pictures in a book of NA history, Visions of the First Americans By Edward Curtis.

I went to HS with some Meeks. The story in HS was that their father's family was Indian, so the family would never have anything to do with his family. Come to find out a few years ago, I am related to that family. My ggrandparents moved away from their Indian family too.

Hello all and welcome new poster, deragland.<O:p</O:p
<O:p</O:p
toniggoins and deragland, Do either of you have personal family stories of Indian ID, specific or not, associated with particular family names in WV or Brunswick Co. VA? I ask because I'm trying to run down a Blackfoot family story that may trace to Goldsberrys in Hardy Co. WV and Guilford and Brunswick Cos. VA. A time range would be helpful too. Mine left for Madison and Ross Cos. OH I think 1804-7. I'm not looking for other Goldsberrys necessarily, just wanting to know of other family stories to know of grouping of people with various IDs and migtation patterns. Thank you<O:p</O:p

The farthest I have been able to track so far is the civil war. Brunswick County's courthouse was destroyed then. I have been able to track some of my family, (tuckers and masons) back earlier through some census records. They were in Brunswick county until about 1870 when they moved to Dinwiddie County.

Hello again ya'll! I am looking into my Goss family after hitting brick walls for now with Goins/Nash clan :-) Once again I have found a "Cherokee" woman born in SC abt 1790 with several different names listed for her. Diasis, Diasampi, Rampas and then the possible surname of Dalrymple that I know was seen in SC in those times.

Story i heard goes when she died her husband's family wouldn't allow her to be buried in the family cemetary and sent her to her own kind. As you know that is how rumors get started :-) If anyone can tell me variations, or possible origins of those names I would appreciate any help

Hello again ya'll! I am looking into my Goss family after hitting brick walls for now with Goins/Nash clan :-)

Mwheelus, could you refresh my memory as to the locations of these families? All 3 surnames are familiar to me, from my neck of the woods (Goinstown area). Goins and Nash married us.

Ok well to be perfectly honest I am not clear on where Goinstown is/was. From the few relatives I may have found that trace back to VA, NC, & SC none of them agree where Goinstown was and if our relatives were there ....that may be because they live in Oklahoma and disagree with each other. Ya'll can give me a better idea I am sure.:)

Now the tricky part, Phillip Goins was father to a Jeremiah Goins that had MANY children and they eventually migrated to Texas then Oklahoma. (Jeremiah has other story connected to my family that isn't relative to this information;) )
Phillip Goins is also father to Michael Goins that he had with Keziah/Kiziah/Kizzy Nash. Phillip was born in either MS or SC abt 1785. He was bonded in marriage to Keziah Nash in 1815 in Natchitoches, LA. Their children were legitimized then after having been born in MS in 1811 and 1813.

Keziah's father was Thomas Nash born in Chowan NC in either 1753/1764 depending on who I talk to. Her mother is possibly Anna Goins who I have no information on or Emily Sarah Slater born in VA abt 1767. Once again there is an argument as to which woman was her mother and if Anna Goins was a Goins from a first marriage or that was her maiden name. Here is a list of Keziah's siblings and their approx birth year:

BORN
Michael Nash abt 1804
Martha Patsy 1787
Fanny 1793
William 1785/1782
Thomas Jr. 1785/1782
Elizabeth 1794
Rebecca "Becky" 1801
Mary Polly Born 6-6-1781 Died 9-14-1855 (pic of her grave)


Goss is my husband's family and the woman I am looking for help on was married to Mathew/Matthew Goss born abt 1790 in Anderson Co, SC died 12/18/1883 in Locust Grove, Henry Co, Georgia. He married the "Cherokee" woman "Diasis Rampas/ Diasampi Dalrymple?" abt 1808 in Pendleton District, SC.
Here is some additional information that I was given about Matthew Goss:

He drew a land allotment from the governor, Henry Middleton, on the second day of November 1812 which comprised 150 acres located on th waters of the Upper Long Branch Creek in the Barnwelr District. This may be in Barnwall, SC.

Date: 8 MAR 1832 Place: applied for 2 draws Gold Lottery Habersham Co., GA Date: 21 JUN 1813 Place: served in Nash's Regiment South Carolina Volunteers Date: 20 JUN 1814 Place: Capt. Andrew Hamilton's Co., SC Militia Place: 1820, 1830 census of Pendleton Dist. SC.

Ok well to be perfectly honest I am not clear on where Goinstown is/was.

Hi. Sorry 'bout that. Seemed easier to just use Goinstown at the time. The actual place was in what is now Rockingham County, NC (see the map in the link below). But many people include in the Goinstown area the counties of Stokes and I think part of Surry in NC, as well as the VA counties of Henry (which is directly adjacent to Rockingham) and Patrick. There is a map somewhere of all those counties...may be missing one or two, but that is the gist of it. If your peeps came from Pittsylvania, Floyd, Franklin, or even Grayson Co, VA they were not far from there. Or, in NC, Guilford, Alamance, Davidson are near. Part of Orange is somewhat close, but if you go further back, it was very close. The Goins and Nashes I know are from Henry and Patrick CO. Hope that is not too much info.

Where Goinstown was, and the graves still are:

Ok Beeleaf, where you are telling me and the response I got in a PM is about where I had thought it was. I am still hunting for that elusive, maybe his name was.... father to my Phillip Goins. I have found in all the research on the web, and in a few things sent to me that it was Stephen Goins. I also have heard that is not his name but a name made up for convenience, that couldn't be thoroughly researched, when my line of Goins were trying to be recognized by the Choctaw Nation. I have found that Goins and Nash families in my background have intermarried over and over again. Sisters marry brothers, then those children marry 1st, 2nd cousins, men marry their 2nd and 3rd wives from opposite family and have more children. We were a tight knit group to say the least.

...father to my Phillip Goins. I have found in all the research on the web, and in a few things sent to me that it was Stephen Goins.

Oh, ok. I am sort of related to a Stephen Goins from Patrick County, VA. May or may not be the one you are looking for. (Could be the wrong generation) Best I can tell, there were 2 Stephen Goins in PC. One of them was referred to as a FPC. One of them was the father of my ggggrandpop's first wife. Am not sure if they are the same Stephen or not. All I know is that one child was named Milly. Maybe there is more in the archives.

mwheelus
05-04-2008, 09:55 PM
Well my Stephen was from VA so that right there is a possibility for me. Thanks a bunch for your help Beeleaf!

I have a question for the people that sift through all the Melungeon/Redbone information. (It is still really confusing to me)
Is it possible that the term "Ramp" could be the origin for the "Rampas" in the "Cherokee" woman's name that married into the Goss family? Diais/Diasis Rampas/ Diasampi Dalrymple
Her mother in law was from VA and the descendants have heard her referred to as Diais Rampas or Diasampi Dalrymple. If she was born abt 1790 does she pre-date the use of the term Ramp for mixed bloods?

07-10-2008, 11:56 PM
Monica....would your husband's name happen to be Jeff? I met him on the Melungeon site and we are cousins...but he's not from Texas. Or Jeff may be kin to your husband.

From what I have just read on Rootswebdotcom, concerning what they have listed as being Charley Cornwell's ancestors, the chances of the Gibson line being Cherokee in Virginia in the 1700's is slim to nil. More "nil" than "slim". Only one result on that site however, but a start if you haven't looked there...goes back a few generations, but would need verified.

"Big Sandy" and "Collins Graveyard" are pretty vague as well. A county would be beneficial in that regard.

Boyd Cornwell sounds like a name made up of two surnames. There "may" be a Boyd in his ancestry, which is something to consider and research.

I'll try that one out, But we as a family have always said that it come's from the womens side noone ever said cherokee but "Were so confused we have to fight ourselves to get out of bed in the morning" .

No Bllings in that line - just FYI.

I don't have any pics of my Bolling Fam. in Henry Co. so I was really interested in seeing yours.

I am still of the mind that your Boldens/Bolings Fam. and my Bolling in Henry Co., must be related somehow.

We have a Frances Ann Smith married to John Fitts. She is also referred to as Fanny in some documents. They were parents of my ggrandfather James Edward Fitts who married Amelia Ann Elliott. We know Amelia was of Native lineage through her mother and grandmother. James Edward was also of Native heritage. His grandparents were John and Mary Fitts, she being born about 1789 and her husband was much older than her. This John Fitts may have lived in or near the High Plains Saponi on the Person side in NC and then moved into Halifax Co in Va. I think the Smiths were in Halifax Co. I have found a John Fitts who appears to have had significant ties with the High Plains Saponi and a Richard Fitts also in the same area and then migrating with other known Saponi families into NC and then on west. I still have many I's to dot and T's to cross but this is more than chance. Many family members of my mother's generation knew and visited "Indian" relatives in that area well after 1900 and the family traditions and knowledge bears well with much of the families physical traits.

Hey Ed, nice to see you around.

And Welcome Kosmic. If you're poking around for possible Saponi (or other tribal) ties, you might want to pursue these names first:

Jefferis
Smith
Scott
Edwards
Moore
Brown
Head
Holmes
Ramsey
Harris
Hughes
Day
Taylor

I've bolded those where there seems to be some specific documentation. The rest have just come upk perhaps reported frequently by families suspecting their have Saponi origins. Try searching here on them and see what comes up.

Happy hunting

10-20-2009, 11:25 AM
Thanks for the welcome Linda and for listing the names. Can't wait to start searching through the posts :-)

Ed, it sounds as though you have a very interesting background! It's possible we have a Smith connection as both our families seem to have been in Halifax. Do you have any idea who Frances Ann's father was? The father of my John Smith (born 1750 in Halifax County, VA) was William born about 1720 in Halifax also. It's through John's wife Frances Burke/Burks that I'm able to make the connection to Chief Powhatan. The story of how my mom was descended from a great Indian Chief (Powhatan) and a full blooded Indian Princess (his daughter Cleopatra, sister of Pocahontas) has been passed down for many generations in my family. Until I started doing genealogical research I assumed that the story was mostly a myth. It does appear however that there's pretty good evidence to support the family legend :-)
All My Best,
Jo

Oops...I need to make a slight correction...John Smith's father was Samuel (born about 1708 in Middlesex, VA) NOT William as I mistakenly posted! Samuel was married to Grissel/Griselda Locker (born 1715 in Prince Georges Co., Maryland).

All My Best,

I thought I would post about one of my family surnames I have not mentioned until now. That is the surname Colbert, which I believe is Irish. My great-great-grandmother, Isabella Colbert, married Thomas Fitzgerald. Their son, Thomas Fitzgerald, Jr., was born in New York, and was reared in Ontario, Canada. As a young man, Thomas Fitzgerald, Jr. migrated to Wisconsin and enlisted in the Union Army. He fought in several Civil War battles, including Shiloh, Tennessee, and Corinth, Mississippi. He was wounded twice but survived the war. After the war, he returned to the Midwest and married my great-grandmother, Hester Ann Rogers, in Fort Madison, Iowa. I have another ancestor, Dean Rogers, Hester's father, who was also brought up in Canada. He was born in Stanstead, Quebec, Canada. Migration both ways between Canada and the United States was very common. I believe Dean's parents may have been born in Vermont and then migrated to Canada, where their son Dean was born. Dean then left Canada as a young man and migrated to Iowa, where he married my great-great-grandmother, Martha Stephens Rogers.

Hello, my ggggrandfather was Lawson Goens/Goins born in Virginia, not sure where, in 1807, he was married to Sarah Hart who also was born in Virginia in 1810 and died in 1886. They were found in the 1850 and 1860 Fed. Population Census for Jefferson County, Virginia, now Jefferson County West Virginia. They were considered "free persons of color and mulattoes" as well. Lawson Goens died 12 Jul 1874, he served as a boatman/ferryman for Shannondale Springs Resort for 30 years. Has anyone researched this area for Saponi links? I do not know of any other location for Lawson Goens. Thanks

Hi,

The surnames that I have researched so far on my mom's side of the family are:

Smoot (info all the way back to William Smute who landed at Old Point Comfort, Va in the 1634. There is also a book called The Smoots of Maryland and Virginia by Harry Wright Newman on that part of my family.)

Morgan (my grandfather's mother's line) Traced all the way back to Abraham Morgan and Elizabeth Ealy from Wales. Also said to have landed in Old Point Comfort, VA before 1775.

Damron (my maternal grandmother's paternal grandmother) traced back to Lazarus Damron and wife Elizabeth Smith (he was born around the late 1600's)

Marcum (on both sides of my grandmother's grandparents) traced back to Josiah Marcum (born approx 1759) and wife Edie McDonald.

Moore (my grandmothers maternal grandparents) I've only been able to go back to my grandmother's grandfather Henry Clinton Moore and wife Rhoda J. Tompkins Moore. Henry's father may have been John Moore?

Tompkins - I've only been able to go back to Rhoda J. Tompkins father William Tandy Tompkins and Elizabeth Laney (spelling?)

If any of these surnames seem familiar to your family line, I'd love to hear from you. I'd also like to know if these names were common among the Native American people so I can start looking into any possible NA blood in these lines. All lived either Virginia or Kentucky in the earlier years and later on in West Virginia and North Carolina area. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Nora

Hi Mr. Collins
My grandmother, Luella C.Coleman 1896 was born in Clovertown, in Halifax. Her father's name was
Wyatt Coleman, 1883 also born in Clovertown. I have reseached the Coleman family back to Wyatt's father
John Coleman. My reseach has my coleman family all being born in Clovertown, Halifax. I am wondering if
there is relationship between my Coleman family and your Coleman family. Luella's father also Mary Thomas also from Clovertown, however, she was not the mother of my grandmother. It seems that my grandmother's mother was deceased while my grandmother was little.

I have Ritchey's from xenia.....xenia is in Greene county. I Robert Richey, Mary Richey 1769,Robert Scott and a whole line of double Scott's. The problem in Greene co with my family is that they changed the spelling of their names along with birth dates anywhere the native or aa lines connected. I have Robison, Steele, Ritchey, Richey, Scott,Smoyer, Herron, Huston,Hawkins, Hunt, Cook, Cooper,Wallace,Webb Collins,Cramer,Bennett,Bevis,Brown,Johnson,Rodgers ,Taylor,Young,Williamson,Crull,Tice, Schenk,Aertzen,Kovenhaven,Voorhis,Monfort Mother's are buried and changed right around the time of the trail of tears. Beard,Hutson,Oldshoe,Tucker,House,Rowe,Beall,Beal, Spencer,Bell,MicKey,Shannon,McElwain
Many came up from North & S.Carolina with the quakers to Preble Ohio. My ggrandfather Benjamin Williamson has a birth date of 1829. His mother was Eliza Robison....she has no family....he doesn't match any of the records or census of that date in Greene county. I suspect he was indian & his name was changed. Many of the list here have different spellings & birth dates.

sorry Vance you asked so many questions I knew but could not give you some kind of proof.. as family tales aren't considered proof by anyone it seems.. so vance here is your proof!


well you can varify Ridge party went down the Ohio.
check moravian records PA/OH 1837? or maybe 36 can't remember
they noted waiting for the ridge party who was late in arriving.. and the mission was worried about the largbe party that was late or missing.. !
I know why they were late... Shooeboots sister , probably his twin sister died on the way there . the ridge party floated down the ohio to IT with goods for their houses. then met with murder in IT and floated back up the ohio to the Moravians, and some settled around there and others moved around alot as there was no place for them .. but they were not welcome in IT so it took a few generations at least before any went back there ,,usually ended up in TX or AR or MO.! you can varify! and ross stole those lands too
you can verify it yourself!
I do not have time to go to Ohio to varify it myself, I am after bigger fish..

these same are the ones related to Shoeboots and his sisters offspring and all the ridge relations.. and those who claim "indian princesses " are most likely my closest relations as in anyones book Ollie and Nancy moytoy would be considered as such in any other place in the world .. besides here now .
not only that these tales persisted because they were all owed money for farms from GA and in IT reserves , stole by both the cherokee nation (ross)and the US government!
you can varify it yourself! and most old cherokee were discussed at even this subject and very angry about it all.

Hi everyone,

These are the names from my maternal grandmother's maid name of Corn. The furthest I could get was to

John Adams CORN (not sure if right middle name, though) - b: abt 1726 in Albermarle Co., VA he died: 14 Oct 1843, Hendersonville, NC his wife: Mary or (Molley/Mollie) - b: 1730 - Henry Co., VA, d: abt 1770 (unknown where).

John Peter CORN (Rev War Vet) - b: 15 Mar 1752, Albermarle Co., VA, died: Died: 14 Oct 1843 ? not sure if both his dad and himself died same time - if anyone might know for sure or not, please let me know, his wife: Hannah Elizabeth PARR - b: 14 jun 1764, Hendersonville, NC- d: 16 Mar 1853 Henderson, NC (is there a possibility of NA on that side, I don't know for sure). I personally think PARR surname is an English name. Hannah's mother's name I have listed only as "Miriam" and no last name) John and Hannah had 15 children, well that is how many I have listed. I came from their son;

Jesse CORN - b: 27 jul 1796, Ashville, Buncombe Co., NC - d: 22 apr 1875 in GA; his wife is Sarah SMITH, b: 1799 - Henderson Co., NC, d: after 1880 in GA. They too had 15 children. I come from;

Solomon Smith CORN - b: 5 Dec 1828 in Henderson, NC, d: 23 Sep 1895 - Talhequah, Cherokee Co., OK; his wife is: Lydia BERRONG - b: 23 Jul 1836, Towns Co., GA; d: 1 jan 1924 Tahlequah, Cherokee Co., OK. They had 10 children and I came from;

Columbus Franklin (Frank) CORN - b: 18 jun 1855 - Hiawassee, Union Co., GA, d: 3 Jul 1934 - Thomas, Custer Co., OK; his wife: Camila Jane LITTLE - b: 18 May 1850 - Union Co., GA, d: 7 Jul 1920, Thomas, Custer Co., OK. They had 8 children and I come from;

David Lorenz(o) CORN - b: 24 May 1876 - Hiawassee, Union Co., GA; d: 19 mar 1939 - Thomas, Custer Co., GA; his wife: Ola Mable MCCRACKEN (although I recently found out she was adopted by her stepdad Walter MILSTEAD) she was b: 25 Mar 1884 - Latham, Butler Co., KS; d: 18 Jul 1967 - Thomas, Custer Co., OK.....as far as I know for now, she is as Irish as can be....I met her only once when I was about 6 or 7...I don't think she has NA...I had my mtDNA done and found out she has Saami tribe of northern Scandanavia countries....mostly European though. Her daughter is my grandmother;

Ethel Mae (CORN) Jones - b: 18 Jul 1903, Thomas Custer Co., OK, d: 16 apr 1997 - Boise, Ada Co., ID; her husband is: Willie Luther JONES - b: 18 jan 1900 - Putnam, Dewey Co, OK; d: 4 Jan 1972, Boise, Ada Co., ID. I had thought, surmised that my grandpa JONES might have had NA blood, but, so far, I haven't been able to prove it or not.....They had 4 children. My mom is their 3rd child;

Beverly Jean (JONES) MCNEIL she is still alive and well in a nursing home.

Grandma Jones is the one who had told us of our NA roots and until now, I had given up on finding out for sure or not. If any of the above names sound familiar, feel free to let me know....perhaps you might have information I don't have or don't know about.

Thanks,

Melody

Hi, everyone,

I will post the family surnames I have to date.

My paternal grandfather's line: direct line is Shelton, Smith, Sharp and Freeman. Some of these have been traced to Tennessee and Virginia.

My paternal Grandmother's line: direct line is Miller, and Gillespie. Miller has been traced to Pennsylvania.

My maternal grandfather's line: Jones. This is my most challenging research to date, it is currently limited to my grandfather. He was supposed to have been born in Texas.

My maternal grandmothers line: direct line is Homan, Fieandt, Burnett, Steele, Wear or Weir, Williams, Burns, Cordry, Thomas, Stephens, Kirkpatrick, Garton, Carson, Ewing and Alexander. These have been traced to Tennessee, Kentucky,Virginia and South Carolina.

More to come, I hope.

Hi everyone,

My maternal grandfather is Willie Luther JONES his father is Luther JONES who was born in: Springtown, Wise County, Texas around the 1860's....Luther JONES father is, Andrew Lawson JONES who was born around 1805, (as far as we know from census records) he was born somewhere in Tennessee. We have absolutely no idea what his father's name is, etc....I have been told by cousins that the JONES married into the NA communities....but I haven't been able to verify it or not....so far, it is just a family legend, so to speak. If anyone might recognize names, etc....please let me know. Thank you.

Osiyo, I am WayaGawonii and know of my Cherokee and Irish heritage but have heard yesterday that some distant Haliwa~Saponi was in my lineage.
I was born late in my mother & fathers lives and I don't know as much as I would like due to no one else being alive to help.
The maiden name of my Great Grandmother was Massey...is there anyone here who has any knowldeg of this last name within the Haliwa~Saponi tribe?

01-03-2011, 02:38 PM
well I do not know if this is the same family as mine but my ancestors surname was pronounced like massey

but it was spelled like MACE. and Missey .

http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=missee&id=I6439

some place up my line of Mace/missey/massey was Pohattan and Saponi.
AT Rootsweb which pedigree is right I do not know as my great grandma mentioned both massy and parks are surnames I am somehow related too someplace some how .. so I am at a total lose as to which of the many Nancy Hopkin's lineage are the right one. I really don't know for sure ... if I got the story right , all I do remember for sure is a little Pohattan and a lot of Saponi and some French blood , well someone spoke french anyway ...but up that line of Nancy Hopkins someplace is a sister of Pocohantas, don't know where she is connected in Nancy's line though . it maybe direct.
if you find yourself at some Pohattan up there someplace , I guess don't be too surprised.

I don't know if the alliterate spellings will get you any leads , but most of our folks
didn't' know how to write back then so don't follow just one spelling or heck even just one name sometimes, as especially the later ones change their names a lot as they assimilate sometimes ..... , sorry it isn't' more help.
I do not know if it is the same as yours or not .
here is my line.

Thank you so very much Nannanae! I have checked it out. On my maternal side is Rogers and Weaver and on parternal side is Price, Dozier and Massey. I know what you ean about the surnames, it gets confusing when all I have to go by way up are Native names.

I have now, in some old papers that did not burn up when the old farmhouse burned down when I was 13, a name of an Native ancestor, her name was Little Standing Deer. Without paying a fortune, I only found her name once and then had to pay $$ to see more. From what I have access to my Massey great grandmother was descended from her. This is somewhat confusing but I won't give up. Knowing of my Cherokee heritage for so long, I truly want to find is Standing Deer was Saponi. Thank you all so much.

well because of your Inquiry I went back to check boards following the massey/Mace/ Missey line back and checking for new info and inquires on those name boards and It looks like the indian man Alexis Laplante might be the connection to the Pohattan daughter as the LaPlante's are looking for a
indian "princess" up that line someplace also .. with some Iroquois blood also. which probably really means Alleg /Allegewi / Alle blood. but maybe she is up that Laplante line somewhere too .
I had thought she was strait up grandma's line but maybe not.
and I do not remember Pocohantas sisters name ,
so I don't know if we are looking for the same lady or not.
or yours Massey is a descendants of the one I am looking for also .. maybe your Massey hasthe same famous 'indian princess' as ours does .

but I think we are indifferent years as the 'rogers"surname would be more likely 1800's time frames ?

and I do believe that some of the massey/Laplante in my line are from Indiana or lived in IN also. but canada before that . so there must be some tie in.
so when was your Massey ancestors born?

WayaGawonii

GG Massey (you know I am not positive of the spelling) just had some old photos and before my grandma passed she told me her mother's name was Indiana Massey and was Cherokee mix with another tribe but never said what tribe. My grandma was born in the late 1800s so I would figure her mother was born in mid 1800s(?). She was old when I was born. The papers I found were some that were saved in the attic of my grandma's house (which was built after the fire of the old homeplace)and the reference to "Little Standing Deer" was clear and I could make out her son's name "Andrew Standing Deer"....they seemed to have been passed on from mother to daughter for a long time. I do know that my paternal grandmother was a teacher and she wrote down her lineage but not much was savaged from the fire, sadly.

You are right about Rogers....it was in the 1800s...that is my mother's side and is traced clearly back to Ireland.
Thank you,

Hi, WayaGawonii:
I don't know if this information may be of interest to you, but I found this on Andy Standing Deer, circa 1891 NC in my searchings: near your timeline. If this is not your people, then I apologize for the shake-up!
There is a wealth of information at this site http://www.accessgenealogy.com/native/northcarolina/cherokee/eastern_cherokee_enumeration_1880.htm; Cherokee Enumerations; Cherokee census of 1835; Wallace Rolls; Guion Miller Rolls; and more...


Jessee and Andy Standing Deer, Cherokee, North Carolina, 1891522

Thank you soooo much JoniEvansBrockman! This is great info and with a picture. Andy Standing Deer could very well be the Andrew Standing Deer I have been searching for. I saw much family resemblance and believe he could have married my great grandma. Thank you!!

ok I have a question about the surname Skiinner in IN /OH

my my great grandpa was a Skinner, and my great grandma said her husband had some indian in him way back, but never talked about it. I know his mothers father was german..Moss and Shiner and that is what she said he identidied as.. so I have off and on tried to find the indians in the Skinner line , but no one knows to much now days..
in searching for Our Massey/missey/Mace
I found where there was Alexis Laplant or Messey who was indian, now when they were baptitized they had a "God parent" Named "Peltier" while they were still in Canada .. since we know that LaPlant line as Massey at least spend some time in IN.. could the sir name Skinner be the same line as Peltier? like the "english' translations or version of the same name and meaning ? and maybe even somehow related to the LaPlant line?
so my question is .. so in french catholic traditions who is the who gets to be "god parents" is there some kind of laws or rules for such business?
so just in case , calling all "Skinners" and " Peltier" do yo all have tale of a famous indian woman in your family too?
and I will go check the boards to see if there is any hints of such a thing in those lines.. I never looked for that.
thanks in advance for any help guys!

Osiyo, After long hours of work and research with old papers and journals and old great/great aunts stories I have been able to put together a descent list. I hope it helps someone as well as I can possibly get to know some kin down the line, this is on my patenal side: (My mother's side is Irish that goes back to the Doyles in Cork Co, Ireland):

GGGG Grandma Uwahali Two Feathers (Catawba/Cherokee) married Scotsman Jack MacNeil...they had:
GGG Grandma Awi Two Feathers (MacNeil) married Cherokee/Choctaw Jack Redbird they had:
GG Grandma Grace Two Feathers (Redbird) married George Massey(Cherokee/Saponi) they had:
G Grandma Indiana Massey married John Dozier, they had:
Grandma M. Dozier married G. Price, they had:
My Dad J.R. Price

Whew...this does take lots of hours and lots of work and $$. Let me know if anyone has any connections or if it helps.

Hi..Just saw the name Goad in your list of family surnames. My husband's mother was a Goad and her family was originally from Virginia. One obit said Greenbriar County but you know how the info in obits tend to be wrong. Depends on who gives it. Maybe no connection but ................

Hi Steve- I am writing about your Weir family. Where were they located? I am looking for mine. Kamama
Hi, everyone,

I will post the family surnames I have to date.

My paternal grandfather's line: direct line is Shelton, Smith, Sharp and Freeman. Some of these have been traced to Tennessee and Virginia.

My paternal Grandmother's line: direct line is Miller, and Gillespie. Miller has been traced to Pennsylvania.

My maternal grandfather's line: Jones. This is my most challenging research to date, it is currently limited to my grandfather. He was supposed to have been born in Texas.

My maternal grandmothers line: direct line is Homan, Fieandt, Burnett, Steele, Wear or Weir, Williams, Burns, Cordry, Thomas, Stephens, Kirkpatrick, Garton, Carson, Ewing and Alexander. These have been traced to Tennessee, Kentucky,Virginia and South Carolina.

More to come, I hope.

My wife's grandfather is a Massey who is supposed to be Cherokee and Saponi (Cheraw). His Cheraw ancestor is Maky Whitefeather Hawkins, but not sure how the Cherokee fits in though.

well I do not know if this is the same family as mine but my ancestors surname was pronounced like massey

but it was spelled like MACE. and Missey .

http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=missee&id=I6439

some place up my line of Mace/missey/massey was Pohattan and Saponi.



David Collins 1850 and Nancy Hopkins.


I had wondered how my Margarette Loree?/Lorie? /Lowery ?( I think is also pronounced Lowery) could have been born in Mobile before it was Mobile. I guess Mabila was a city a long time before Mobile was named after it . I just thought it was interesting possible history connection to some of my Nancy Hopkin's<massee missee="" <="" <<<="" loree="" lowery="" lines="" come="" from="" .
