I find this sight very interesting. I am trying to find the tribe that my ancestors and myself belong to. They were from Goose Creek Island. My Great Grandmother's family were Mercer's. Her father was George Mercer. I beleive he is the one who was Indian. His wife I beleive was Susan Leary. If you know which tribe this is I'd appreciate that information. I also know there is an Indian cemetery there, I plan on taking a trip there with my mother sometime soon.
thanks.

Hello, I have an interest in the history of Chowan Indian tribe as I believe I am a decendant from the Bennett lineage that resided in Gates and Edenton county, NC. I am also looking into the same maternal line for confirmed native Ancestry that was confirmed through DNA testing and Oral family history. I am the moderator of http://groups.yahoo.com/group/nativesistergroup/ which includes members who have traced thier ancestry to Chowan and other Native American groups and have proved positive through DNA testing. Your sites offer great insight and knowledge.

Thanks for creating such a splendid site.

As an amateur historian and professional land-title examiner, I'm just finishing an 8-year project concerning the transfer of Indian land title in the Virginia piedmont, focused on the Siouan Monacans, and I'm beginning to plan a similar project for the Carolina piedmont and upper coastal plain, focusing on the Lumbees.

I came upon this site today, and immediately added it to my favorites -- I intend to make good use of it!

Thanks again!

My dad's people are the Coree Indians of the outer banks of NC. The Core Sound and Core sound are named for them. Harkers Island was once Coree Island until old man Harker killed all the Indians on it, then it became Harkers Island. I'm currently trying to uncover all the history I can about the Coree people, who are still alive and well in the area.
I'm very pleased to look at this site. It is very informative and nicely done. Keep up the good work.

I just found this site and found it very helpful in a couple ways. First, I am of Shawnee ancestry and have found the information of Chowan people to be very interesting. From studying the Shawnee of South Carolina, I made an assumption that more live in North Carolina, but couldn't find a link till now. Secondly, I'm working on developing a display for the Wayne County Museum and found some more on the people who would've lived in Wayne County/Goldsboro prior to the Tuscarora Wars. If any one can shed more light on this area, please e-mail. Keep up the good work!

I have researched my family to the 1700's and it has taken me over 30 years to write my history/research. Just recently I became computer literate. This web-site was found accidentally and I must say that it is literally a warehouse of information. In my second edition of my history, I will definitely include information about the indians that were my relatives (ie Chowanokes) that I have recently found out about. Again, thanks thanks thanks.

Excellent sources, thank you. I'm writing a series of guidebooks for naturalists, paddlers and adventurers. Currently, I'm working on books 2 and 3. #2 is Dismal Swamp watershed and south to the Pamlico. I'm including river information (access points, navigability, flora and fauna)and history related to the rivers. #3 will be Back Bay and Mackay Island areas. Any additional info very welcome. Thanks, Lillie

At Lake Phelps in eastern N.C., which is a part of Pettigrew State Park, are to be found dugout canoes in the lake. I'm not sure that they are of Algonquin origin, but it seems very likely. I was hoping to find an article here by chance. Even though I didn't see anything off-hand, I have found your link useful for my passing but increasing interest pertaining to Eastern North Carolina Native Americans. If you know about these canoes or any reference material about them I missed, I'd love to know!

Seeking information on Chowan Indians, Chief Thomas Hoyter, and a Tabitha Freeman believed to be the daughter of Thomas Hoyter, "chiefman of the Chowan Indians." Her husband was John Freeman who purchased 200 acres in Chowan Town from Chief Hoyter in 1734. Then in 1754 Joh Freeman, along with the last two surviving adult males of the Chowans executed a deed selling Chowan lands.
