That is interesting question. I just copied a file of descendants of Pocahontas that I was trying to keep up with and found only one child but NOT named Pocahontas. This child was Matoaka BOLLING. I understand that Matoaka was her Indian name. Some say she was the adopted daughter of Powhatan. According to what I have, the person who named their daughter Matoaka was Major John BOLLING married to Mary Elizabeth BLAIR. I can't vouch for any of this info as have gleaned it off internet. I am actually looking for the ancestry of my great grandfather William Wesley J. WORRELL who had one son adopted into the BOLLING family and the OSBURN family. Any information on any WORRELLS would be greatly appreciated.
