"Nemacolin was born into the Lenape Nation; Unami (Turtle) Tribe and the Fish Clan. His father Checochinican, Chief of the Fish Clan, married the daughter of Jacques Poynton (1643-1738) of Canada, and his Indian wife. They were married in 1714. Checochinican moved his family back to America and settled on the Susquehanna River in Eastern Pennsylvania. This are is where Nemacolin was born in 1715 and grew up. He prepared to become Chief of the Fish Clan after his father."
Does anyone have a connection to this line of Poynton. I have an Uncle of this surname. They had a farm near the home of Chief Joseph Brant in Canada.

I too am researching Jacques Poynton and want to
find out his wife's name and tribe. She was pure bred
Indian. Nemacolin is my 6th g.grandfather. Do you
know where the Poynton's lived and did they ever
migrate to N.America? I also would like to know their
daughter's name? Any help much appreciated.
