I am now trying to learn more about Ware and her ties to the Powhatan people. Peace, Michael Gerety Mike Ive been in foster homes and so I was unable to learn about my family history. Im told that my mother was Cherokee and her father was a son of a chief,possibly a chief of the nation of The People but for unfortunate reasons I dont know.Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. I have children of my own now and they are curiuse.The Powhatan Nation was instrumental in saving my great grandfather's life (Robert Pollard Holmes)and once he joined the settlement, he married my great grandmother who was of either the Cherokee or Pamunkey/Mattaponi tribes. I am cherokee indian and my grandfather Walter Kenova Bradby use to be Chief before he passed away. We visited family in Front Royal; Tappahanock/Rappahanock; Grand Dad's Brother married Grand Mother's Sister; Dad's double-first cousin, Augustine Willis married Mom's Aunt, Viola Clarke.Have you considered setting up a web site for selling over the internet? Would like to know if anyone could help me to identify which Native American Tribe of the Powhatan Nation, we belong to.Darryll Seabourne I was delighted to see this website. Father's Side: Timothy Willis (son of Erie"Cue"Willis & Phoebe(Cosby)Willis; Ware Neck, Matthews County; Willis &/or Tabb Plantations.remember that our heritage is sacred and unique- not that many people can honestly say that their veins carry our blood. I know very little at this point but would be very appreciative af any help that you can provide.
i'm very proud of the poeple who made this site possible- it gives me pride and joy to know that we are making ourselves known.it is about time that people learn who we are and what we have overcome throughout history. i am proud to be native american, and may all who are also be proud of their roots. keep the fires of our backround burning in a world that tries to block it out. anakalia My name is Mike Flinn and I am researching my family history as it relates to the Powhatan People.I have information on the Winebrenner family if any one is interested.

Gypsy Kimber Gypsy Mangrum....(Gypsy) I am interested to coming to your museum, perhaps on Saturday, I need to know what address you are located at so, I can put into Mapquest to get directions.

I dont have any clue as to how to find out because I never was able to be close to my biological family.Best regards, Mike Flinn Mike Flinn What is left to say...
