This what I have on Tobacco's line:

Generation No. 1

1. Simon1 Girty was born Abt. 1779, and died March 11, 1833 in Illinois District, Indian Territory. He married Elizabeth.
       
Child of Simon Girty and Elizabeth is:
i. Simon Girty, born Abt. 1829 in East of the Mississippi River.


Generation No. 2

2. Simon Girty (Simon) was born Abt. 1829 in East of the Mississippi River. He married Lucinda Watty. She was born May 04, 1840 in Illinois District, Indian Territory, and died May 13, 1887 in Illinois District, Indian Territory.
       
Children of Simon Girty and Lucinda Watty are:
i. George Girty, born Abt. 1856 in Illinois District, Indian Territory.
ii. Isaac Girty, born Abt. 1859 in Illinois District, Indian Territory; died 1892 in Illinois District, Indian Territory.
iii. Watty Girty, born Abt. 1861 in Illinois District, Indian Territory.
iv. Samee Girty, born Abt. 1865 in Illinois District, Indian Territory.
v. John Girty, born Abt. 1869 in Illinois District, Indian Territory.
vi. Mary Girty, born Abt. 1872 in Illinois District, Indian Territory.
vii. James Girty, born Abt. 1873 in Illinois District, Indian Territory.
viii. Adam Girty, born Abt. 1879 in Illinois District, Indian Territory.


Generation No. 3

4. Isaac Girty (Simon, Simon) was born Abt. 1859 in Illinois District, Indian Territory, and died 1892 in Illinois District, Indian Territory. He married (1) Martha Abt. 1877 in Illinois District, Indian Territory. She was born Abt. 1856, and died Abt. 1881 in Illinois District, Indian Territory. He married (2) Polly Haley Abt. 1884 in Illinois District, Indian Territory, daughter of Rachel Haley. She was born Abt. 1856 in Illinois District, Indian Territory, and died Aft. 1902.
       
Child of Isaac Girty and Martha is:
i. Willie (Squirrel/Sy-law-ly) Girty, born June 1877 in Illinois District, Indian Territory; died December 19, 1904 in Illinois District, Indian Territory.

       
Children of Isaac Girty and Polly Haley are:
i. Eliza Girty, born August 1885 in Illinois District, Indian Territory.
ii. Simon Girty, born November 1886 in Illinois District, Indian Territory.
iii. Tobacco (Jo-la) Girty, born January 17, 1890 in Illinois District, Indian Territory; died May 1966 in Tahlequah, OK.

Issac Girty was murdered in 1892. Polly Haley first married to Sourjohn and had two children Albert and Susie. Polly then married Isaac Girty and then to Joe Phillips before 1900. Its my theory that the Simon Girty (1779-1833) who is number 1 on this chart is the son of Simon Girty (1741-1818) and the daughter of a Mohawk Chief. The reputed Indian son of Simon Girty according to O. M. Spencer's autobiography was named Ked-zaw-saw but called Simo-ne by his grandmother. This boy was said to have been born about 1781. Still looking to prove this connection. A majority of the first two genberations of this family are burried in the Simon Girty cemetery in Sequoyah Co., OK. A road was built over the cemetery and the four remaining stobnes put on the side of the road. There were known to be 20 graves in the cemetery before the road was made over it. The readable stones were from Simon Girty (1779-1833), Lucinda Girty (1840-1887), Isaac Girty (1854-1866), and Isaac Girty (? - 1892).
