    I know....I actually gave someone a link not that long ago to a place that was asking the same thing.....there is a tribe (state recognized I believe) which had a thing where they was asking that if your family history states you was descended from Pocahontas then to contact them.....

    I'll try and find it for you....

However, disaster then struck the natives, for the English established policies that eventually led to the near-total extermination of the Indian people and forceful removal of the survivors to reservations.

    12. Princess Matoaka3 Pocahontas (Wahunsonacock2 Powhatan, Algonkian Chief1) was born 1594 in Virginia1, and died Mar 1616/17 in Gravesend, Kent, England.

    Notes for John Rolfe:
    John Rolfe married in England and set sail for Virgina in May 1609. The ship in which he came was wrecked on the Bermudas and here a daughter was born, who was christened February 11 1609/10. They reached Virginia in May 1610 and his wife and child had either died in Bermuda or soon after they reached Virginia.
    The Virginia colony was nearly abandoned in 1610 and might not have survived but for one man - John Rolfe. In 1612, John Rolfe began experiments in growing and processing tobacco. His export of tobacco to a London merchant in 1614 began a trade that made Virginia viable economically. Then he married Pocahontas, daughter of the great werwance, or sub-chief, Powhatan, which helped assure a few years of peaceful coexistence with the native tribes of Virginia.

    Generation No. 4


    15. Thomas4 Rolfe (Princess Matoaka3 Pocahontas, Wahunsonacock2 Powhatan, Algonkian Chief1) was born 30 Jan 1614/15 in Virginia, and died in James City Co., VA. He married Jane Poythress, daughter of Capt. Francis Poythress. She was born Abt. 1630 in England.

    Notes for Thomas Rolfe:
    He was left in England when his father returned to Virginia in 1617. He was sent to his uncle Henry in London. On August 23, 1618 the Virginia Company wrote to Governor Argall in Virginia: "We cannot imagine why you should give us warning that Opechankano (father of Nicketti) and the natives have given the country to Mr. Rolfe's child and that they reserve is from all others until he comes of years." It would appear from this that the Indians were supposed to have intended that Thomas Rolfe should succeed to the chieftainship of the Powhatans. After his return to Virginia Thomas Rolfe petitioned the Governor for permission to visit his aunt "Cleopatre and his Kinsman Opecancanough."

    Child of Thomas Rolfe and Jane Poythress is:

    CABELL, William, pioneer, was born in Warminster, England, March 20, 1700. the eldest son of Nicholas
    and Rachel (Hooper) Cabell, and a grandson of William Cabell, who went to Warminster about 1664, and died there in 1704, probably belonging to the Frome-Selwood family. William Cabell, the descendant, was graduated from the Royal college of medicine and surgery in London, and after practising a number of years entered the British navy as a surgeon. He came to America about the year 1723, and settled in Virginia. The first really authentic record of him is in 1726, when he was deputy-sheriff in St. James parish. Henrico county, an office of great importance at that time. Probably some time in 1726 he married Miss Elizabeth Burks, and in 1728 removed to a settlement on Licking-Hole Creek, in what is now Goochland county, where he was elected a justice of the first county court, held from May 21 to June 1, 1728. In November of the same year he was made a member of the first grand jury, and in December was qualified as a coroner, his knowledge of medicine and surgery fitting him for the office. From 1730 to 1734 he spent much time in locating lands for settlement in the region west of the mouth of the Rockfish River, being the first Englishman to make such an attempt. In 1733, having located a large tract of land, he "entered for" it, but, before finally securing the legal right to the land, was obliged to go to England, leaving his wife and two friends as his attorneys. The survey was made in 1737, extending for twenty miles along both sides of the James river. In 1738 a patent for 4,800 acres of land was issued to him by Gov. William Gooch, and, in 1739 a grant of 440 acres was added. Dr. Cabell returned in 1741. In 1743 he was granted 1,200 acres adjoining his patent of 4,800 acres, and soon after his return from England he removed from Licking-Hole Creek to the mouth of Swan Creek, in Nelson county. After erecting dwelling houses, a mill, a warehouse and other buildings, he named the place Warminster, and for more than half a century it was a thriving commercial centre. In 1744 Albemarle county was formed, and he was one of the first justices; in August, 1746, he was commissioned coroner, and in September assistant surveyor of the county. In December, 1753, having increased his land by about 26,000 acres, he gave up his surveying business to his son William.
    He practised in his own county and those adjacent, and charged from one to five pounds, Virginia currency, for each visit. His services were usually engaged with the agreement that if the patient was not cured, the doctor would receive no pay beyond the immediate expense incurred. His wife, Elizabeth, died Sept. 21, 1756, and on Sept. 30, 1762, he married Margaret, widow of Samuel Meredith. The bulk of his property he left to his son Nicholas, who was married April 16, 1772, to Hannah, daughter of Col. George Carrington.

    William Cabell

    CABELL, William, surgeon, born near Warminster, England, 9 March, 1700;
    died near Warminster, Nelson County, Virginia, 12 April, 1774. He was the
    son of Nicholas, an English gentleman belonging to the Cabells of Devon and
    Somersetshire, whose estates were confiscated, either wholly or in part,
    because of their allegiance to Cromwell. One of the finest specimens of
    mediaeval glass that has survived the iconoclasm of the Roundheads is in the
    church of St. John of Frome Selwood, which preserves the Cabell arms in the
    four panels of a chapel-window. According to tradition, Dr. William Cabell was
    a surgeon in the British navy, who was captivated by the Virginian climate,
    resigned his commission about 1723, and procured extensive grants of land
    along James river, in the present counties of Buckingham, Nelson,
    Appomattox, and Amherst. The patent for these was issued 12 September,
    1738. Dr. Cabell married Elizabeth Birks, but whether in England or America
    is uncertain. In 1735 he was called to England by the death of his father, and
    left his wife in charge of the Virginia property. He remained in England for
    nearly six years, settling the estates of his father and other recently deceased
    relatives and practicing his profession.

    On his return he made his home on his patented lands, and was appointed
    assistant surveyor, an office that enabled him to increase his already generous
    estate by a large addition of valuable lands, though not equal in fertility to
    those at first obtained. He promoted immigration, established a private
    hospital near his residence, and made professional visits far and near,
    charging from 1 to 5 for a visit, according to the distance traveled. For
    amputating an arm the charge was 7 10s., or 12 to 15 if "a cure was
    guaranteed." He had apparently a genuine enthusiasm for his profession, and
    executive abilities of a high order to carry on such extensive enterprises in a
    professional way as well as superintending his landed interests and filling
    acceptably the local offices that he held. His first wife, by whom alone he had
    issue, died 21 September, 1756, and on 27 September, 1762, he married Mrs.
    Margaret Meredith (a widow), who died 26 February, 1765. Dr. Cabell had six
    children, a daughter and five sons; and all of the sons save one, who died in
    childhood, attained eminence.

    --William, the eldest (commonly known as Col. William Cabell, Sr., of Union
    Hill), born at Licking Hole, Goochland County, Virginia, 18 March, 1780; died
    at Union Hill, 23 March, 1798, received the best education attainable in the
    colony. When he had learned to read at eight years of age his father sent him
    from England "a Bible, a prayer-book, and a small gun." He became sheriff of
    Albemarle County in 1751, and from that time was constantly in responsible
    positions, assistant surveyor for the county in 1758, '" his majesty's presiding
    justice " and member of the house of burgesses in 1757, commissioner for
    settling militia claims in 1758, and first presiding magistrate for the United
    States after the declaration of independence. During all this time he was an
    active promoter of schemes for improving James River and for increasing the
    educational and commercial advantages of the colony. About 1773 he aided in
    establishing iron-works on Hardware river. He was a member of the house of
    burgesses when the colonies revolted against Great Britain, and a delegate to
    all the conventions looking toward national independence. He was chosen first
    state senator from the eighth district, and was a member of the committee that
    prepared the famous "declaration of rights."

    Throughout the revolution he was active, in both public and private capacity, in
    promoting measures for an efficient civil and military service. On 7 January,
    1789, he was for the last time a candidate for a public office, that of
    presidential elector, and received the vote of every man that was polled. He
    cast his vote for Washington as first president of the United States. He left his
    estate of 20,000 acres and a large number of slaves "free from debt and every
    other incumbrance."--Joseph (of Sion Hill), the second son, born 19
    September, 1732; died at Sion Hill, 1 March, 1798. For many years he held
    important civil offices in his native state, occupying a seat in the house of
    burgesses and serving as a member of the different conventions. During the
    war for independence he commanded the Buckingham county regiment, and

    was joined, while on the way to take part in the siege of Yorktown, by the
    students of William and Mary College, who had formed a company and
    volunteered to accompany him.--William H., youngest son of Dr. William
    Cabell, born at Boston Hill, Cumberland County, Virginia, 16 December, 1772;
    died in Richmond, 17 January, 1853, was educated at Hampden-Sidney and
    William and Mary Colleges, being graduated in 1793. In 1794 he was admitted
    to the bar in Richmond. He married Elizabeth, youngest daughter of Col.
    William Cabell, in 1795, who died in 1801. He was first a member of the house
    of delegates in 1796, and was frequently re-elected until 1805, when he was
    chosen governor. The same year he married Agnes Sarah Bell, daughter of
    Col. Robert Gamble, of Richmond, and sister of Mrs. Wirts, of Richmond. In
    the mean while he had twice served as a presidential elector. He was governor
    for three years, when he was elected a judge of the general court, and in 1811
    a judge of the court of appeals, of which last he was president at the time of his
    death.

    --Samuel Jordan Cabell, eldest son of Col. William Cabell, Sr., born in
    Amherst County, Virginia, 15 December, 1756; died 4 August, 1818. He
    received a classical education, mainly in private schools, and entered William
    and Mary College in 1773. When the colonies revolted against Great Britain
    he was a student, but at once left College, raised a company of riflemen in his
    native county, and entered the continental service. This company was in all the
    northern campaigns, and is said to have opened the engagement at the battle
    of Saratoga. Capt. Cabell was rapidly promoted major and lieutenant colonel,
    and when the seat of war was transferred to the south accompanied General
    Greene with his regiment. At the siege of Charleston he was taken prisoner
    and paroled; but, failing to secure an exchange, was inactive till the close of
    the war. During the formative period of the government he was almost
    continuously a member of the state legislature, and in 1788 sat as his father's
    colleague in the convention that passed upon the proposed federal
    constitution, and both of them voted against its adoption. From 1785 till 1803
    he served in congress. He married Sarah, daughter of Col. John Syme, of
    Hanover County, Virginia

    --George Craighead, grandson of Joseph of Sion Hill, was born in Danville,
    Kentucky, 25 January, 183'7. He was one of a family of twenty children. His
    father removed to Kentucky in 1811. He was educated at home and at
    Danville academy. As his father had suffered pecuniary losses, he engaged in
    teaching while he studied law and saved the means to complete his
    professional studies at the University of Virginia. He began to practice law in
    1858, and the same year was elected commonwealth's attorney, which office
    he held until 1861, when he enlisted as a private in the 18th Virginia infantry,
    and was rapidly promoted to major and lieutenant colonel. He took part in
    most of the hard fighting of the Army of Northern Virginia during the civil war
    and was thrice wounded, a bullet in the last instance entering his face and
    passing out at the back of his head. He was promoted colonel of cavalry in
    1865. Resuming his law practice immediately after the close of hostilities, he
    soon retrieved his wrecked fortunes, and was elected to the 44th and 45th
    congresses, representing the conservative democratic element of his state.

    --James Laurence Cabell, son of Dr. George Cabell, Jr., born in Nelson
    County, Virginia, 26 August, 1813. He was graduated at the University of
    Virginia in 1833, and after a course of medical study there and in Baltimore
    and Philadelphia went to Paris, and while pursuing his studies there was
    elected to the chair of anatomy and surgery in the University of Virginia. He
    was chairman of the faculty, a place corresponding to that of president in other
    institutions, in 1846-'7. During the civil war he had charge of military hospitals
    for the Confederate government. In the year of the yellow fever epidemic at
    Memphis he was chosen chairman of the National sanitary conference at
    Washington, and subsequently president of the National board of health. Dr.
    Cabell is a contributor to medical journals, and is the author of "The
    Testimony of Modern Science to the Unity of Mankind" (New York,
    1858).--Edward Calrington, third son of William H., was born in Richmond, 5
    February, 1816. He received a classical education in the schools of Richmond,
    and afterward studied at Lexington and at the University of Virginia, including
    the law section, in 1834 and 1836. Removing to Florida, he was elected to
    congress by the Whigs, serving during four terms from 1845 till 1853. In 1852
    he delivered a speech in congress on the fortification of Key West and the
    Tortugas, which is said to have secured the appropriation for the protection of
    those important points. In 1850 he married Anna Maria Wilcox, a daughter of
    Mrs. John J. Crittenden by a former husband. During the civil war he was for
    a time in the Confederate army. He wrote an elaborate account of Florida,
    which was published first in the "National Intelligencer" and afterward in "De
    Bow's Review."
