Why Do You Want to Join Saponitown Forum?:
To find out more about my family in Pennsylvania. I have found some information which leads me to believe that my 3rd great grandfather, Jacob Leckenton, may have been Blackfoot. I have come across some info which states that he adopted a full-blooded Blackfoot child, Barbara Leckenton (born 1808.) I have been researching Eastern Blackfoot and have found in that research many who state that some of the Eastern Blackfoot moved from Virginia up into Pennsylvania to join with the Iriquois and into the 6 Nation Confederacy (if I remember that correctly.) I am left wanting for more information which is why I was excited to find this website.
