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.
I now have a better understanding and greater appreciation of Indian people as the first inhabitants of this nation that I love. I do pray that God will restore you as a people in your rightful place in this land of plenty and opportunity. I invite everyone to visit our dating sites directory also. Eugen Dalling I love your web page, i wish you would have more festivals throught the year, especially in the summer.
I don't know how, I don't know when, but He will do it again, as the song goes. I a myself am indian but from the island of cuba, (Arawak Indian)and have no knowledge of anyone else who might be from this tribe except for people in my family who still reside in that island.
I have been studying and gathering geneology for my family on my own and from others.
My maiden name is Crocker and we also are related to the Collins' of Delair.
It blew all of my preconceived notions about the Indian Culture as a whole ( which I've gotten from old movies and old books).
