Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum and am very happy to have all your knowledge to draw on since I just found that one of my ancestors was Saponi.
I will just briefly list my line and hope that there will be others who either share it or have knowledge of it. Sorry, I don't have a gedcom.
John Austin b ca 1690 in England married a Saponi woman of the Catawba Nation. Her English name was Hannah Love. I descend through their son Richard who may have married Ann Heard. Their daughter Elizabeth Austin married Isaac Vernon. Their son Isaac Vernon Jr. also married an Elizabeth, last name unknown. Does anyone know who she was? Their son Joseph Vernon Married ?(have no idea) Their son John Vernon married Sarah Sims/Lemuel. Their son Noah Vernon b 1805 married Sarah Lewellyn. Their daughter Sarah Amanda Vernon married Marcus Lafayette Batman/Bateman. Their daughter Mary Alice Batman married Joseph William Christian. Their son Jesse Milton Christian was my father.
Connected surnames include: Reed/Read (I'm looking for a John Reed b ca 1755-60), Jamison, McCartney, Baylor, Powers, Jones. I also have the surnames Martin, Evans, Sanders from another line.
I would love to know what John Austin's wife's Indian name was. I'm anxious to learn about the Tribe's culture, religion, art, clothing, etc.
Thanks in advance for your help,
