I am now trying to learn more about Ware and her ties to the Powhatan people. Peace, Michael Gerety Mike Ive been in foster homes and so I was unable to learn about my family history. Im told that my mother was Cherokee and her father was a son of a chief,possibly a chief of the nation of The People but for unfortunate reasons I dont know.
Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. I have children of my own now and they are curiuse.
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.
Best regards, Mike Flinn Mike Flinn What is left to say... I am a 40 yr old female who rides horses and my harley davidson and I am so free spirited at times it scares me.. We'll be coming from Toms River from an adult community on Rt 70. I have sisters and brothers Ive never even seen before.
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.
I have berry trees in my yard now, but my father said there were walnut trees and other fruit trees here when he was younger.
Look forward the learning more about the culture and introducing my grandson to his possible heritage. Gretchen Crocker Jones Within the past year or so...
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.
