Is there a listing of surnames for the Ani-Stohini/Unami anywhere and would it go back in the past any significant distance ? Ed
Some names are; Smith, Marsh, Bilbray, Burcham, Patton,and GrahamMarch 20, 2023 at 9:13 pm in reply to: Howdy, I'm a new bee #67089
There is a practically unknown tribe in that same area (Ani Stohini Unami) that have ties to the Cherokee. My suspicion has been that we may be related to them, but then the trail led me here.
Hi Beeleaf, I have recently discovered these connections as well. Specifically my Indiana Jones Smith line with the Burcham Ani-Stohini/Unami line in Carroll County VA. Specifically descendants of John E Burcham 1818-1892 married to Mahala Smith 1812-1894. These are some pictures of their descendants from Ancestry.com:
Isaac & Matilda (Burhcam) Burcham – also her maiden name.

Your mention of the Ani-Stohini/Unami caught my eye. They used to have a pretty cool website, with herbals and a paper describing some of the history. I have that paper somewhere, but have been unable to locate it.
Since my family lives in the same area as that tribe (and shares at least one surname), I’ve wondered if perhaps the reference to “the reservation” was related. I also wonder if there’s a Saponi connection, since the tribe is connected to a variety of tribes from different language groups.
Hi Beeleaf, I believe you are referring to this paper:

I was asking Dirty Water Dan if he had a link too. I don’t. There is a transcript online from the July 26 2019 meeting of the North Carolina Commission of Indian Affairs discussing it: https://files.nc.gov/ncdoa/Public-Hearing_Condensed-Transcript-of-7-26-19_Tuscarora-Nation-of-NC-2019_0726_MINI.pdfJanuary 6, 2023 at 6:33 am in reply to: An Eno-Occoneechee petetion For Bunch #67002
That is interesting. I believe you are referring to the Eno-Occaneechi petition for regonition from 1990. Do you have a link to the names in the petition?

Francis Smith appears to be the son of Shorten and Lavina ‘Vina’ Smith. Shorten is on a land grant in Montgomery County VA in 1785. In 1791 he is recorded in Upper District of Russell County. In 1802 he is recorded in Tazwell County. Judging by the DNA matches of many Smith descendants it appears there are many in McDowell County WV to this day.
Although these are different counties they are basically the same place.January 6, 2023 at 6:09 am in reply to: 1770’s-Smith-Massa-Piedmont area #66989
After several years of research have been able to get a generation further back. Francis Smith and Massa Jones son David B Smith married Harriet Good. Harriet Good’s parents were Isom H. Good and Mary ‘Polly’ Routh.
Isom Good’s father was Peter Good. Peter Good was born about 1750, likely in the area of Granville County NC. He is on the payroll for troops in the Granville County Militia in 1768. In a 1779 he is in Wilkes County NC recorded in a land grant at the “Poplars on Southern Branch of Hunting Creek”. On the 1790 census he is in Wilkes NC. In 1820 he is in Clinton OH with Isom and daughter Rhoda ‘Rhodie’ Trimble.

My girls and I all liked it best as parched corn. Five minutes on medium heat in the pan. Easy to see how this was a staple food for our ancestors.
Ate some ears raw – tastes good and sweet. Tried these ones at 16 weeks:
