Pocahontas's Christian name war Rebecca, She was baptized with that name. So the listing as given is correct. Pocahontas Rebecca Rolfe, There seems how ever to have been an Indian Child born to Pocahontas from her Indian marriage.

Pocahontas Trails Genalogy Society showed "cencus" of the Rolfe household and listed a child Rebecca age 2 and 1/2.
Recently it has been accepted as correct that she had Indian Desc but the name not know.

One researcher of the Powhatan Tribe indicates that she was married and name was Rebecca Rolfe King. I have found a Rebecca King who died in 1661 in Va, She had a daughter that married an Anherst. If someone is able to decode her desc. I would be most grateful to receive that information. She was most likely born circa 1612.
