The Powhatan Nation was instrumental in saving my great grandfather's life (Robert Pollard Holmes)and once he joined the settlement, he married my great grandmother who was of either the Cherokee or Pamunkey/Mattaponi tribes. I am cherokee indian and my grandfather Walter Kenova Bradby use to be Chief before he passed away. We visited family in Front Royal; Tappahanock/Rappahanock; Grand Dad's Brother married Grand Mother's Sister; Dad's double-first cousin, Augustine Willis married Mom's Aunt, Viola Clarke.
If anyone knows the Holmes name, please contact me via e-mail. Mother: Pearl Borum Willis,(daughter-Ferdinand Borum & Pearl Mae Clark(e)Borum, Grand-daughter of Hester "Grandma Easter" Hobday & Elias Clarke.
My family has Indian roots and I have tried to find out a little about them.
My maiden name is Crocker and we also are related to the Collins' of Delair.
Have you considered setting up a web site for selling over the internet? Would like to know if anyone could help me to identify which Native American Tribe of the Powhatan Nation, we belong to.
Its so funny when you speak a different language in this country, and white folks get mad " If you are living in America, speak the language" hilarious, since english wasnt the native language of america...
I have been studying and gathering geneology for my family on my own and from others.
I am honored and delighted to discover that I am the 14th great-grandaughter of Rebecca Rolfe, otherwise known as POCAHONTAS, through her son's marriage.
Wouldn't it be something if I discover my roots right here in my home.
My father told me the property I live on was once all wooded and had all types of trees and he used to fish in the creek behind my house.
