Welcome to the Searching for Saponi Town forum for Eastern Blackfoot / Eastern Siouan descendants.
We're a group of people descended from the allegedly "extinct" Eastern Siouan people who lived in the Piedmont of VA and NC up until colonial times. Dispersed but not destroyed.

Feel free to go ahead and get into all the begats here. Surnames, dates, locations, etc. Also post inquiries. We're hoping to establish an open book which will help us all to further our research.

Felicia and I, Linda Carter, are working on an outdoor drama about the generation preceding the massacre at Occoneechee Island, and the generation after. We will be bringing forward some of the characters we've 'found" and introducing them here. Written by Felicia Cegelski & Linda Carter, artwork by Linda Carter. ©2008
