I seen the 1st settlers of this tribe. They obtained thier land grants from North Carolina. Noted men reliable freindly Indians truthfull faithfull to any they promise.. by cival war the Indian Blood almost run out, they are growing White. when Daniel Boone was hunting here 1763 -67 they were not here..
