It blew all of my preconceived notions about the Indian Culture as a whole ( which I've gotten from old movies and old books).Hearing it from the American Indians changed everything. Cristina Causing Hi, I really enjoyed reading your site, its great to see such good content and illustrations.
remember that our heritage is sacred and unique- not that many people can honestly say that their veins carry our blood. I know very little at this point but would be very appreciative af any help that you can provide.
What I do know is that my great-grandmother's name was Pocahontas Pullam or Puliam and her mother's name was Ware.
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 have berry trees in my yard now, but my father said there were walnut trees and other fruit trees here when he was younger.
