Pocahontas Family Genealogy Forum
Message #616 inquired as to how many children received such a name of her descendants.
Get yourself a copy of "THE CABELLS AND THEIR KIN", by Alexander Brown, and you will see that this one family carried the name 'Pocahontas' down through their many generations. After the number 10, I stopped counting. They also named a few 'Powhatan', and a couple of other Indian names. Pocahontas Rebecca was used a couple of times too'. The singer, Wayne Newton, has a Pocahontas closely related to a great-grandfather of his, in his ancestry, attested to by the Books, "The Monteith Family and the Potomec Indians" and "A Brief Outline of the History of the Pattawomec Tribe"; both by Mr. William Deyo,a descendant of one of the brothers of Powhatan,available from DeJoux Publications, Virginia 'Beach, Va. The name Oceola, an Indian name of Oceola , the Warrior chief,[not ever a real chief that I can ascertain],is also cast around in this Indian line. Osceola was said to be the son of a Powell. I don't really know. But any of the Indian names are better than the 'monikers' that my parents laid on me.
