Chief Cornstalk f/o Bluesky

I have family history that we are descended from Chief Cornstalk by way of a daughter, Bluesky, and a rev. solider, Parker Adkins. Family history says that a daughter, Charity, was born of this union, and Adkins took her back to his wife to raise after Bluesky was killed (shortly after her father?) Any information you may have would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Frances Secoy
Charleston, WV

Frances, my name is Harold Brinegar, originally from Cabin Creek, W.Va. I have many kin in the Kanawha Valley. Some on Campbells Creek, Winifred and some on Elk River. My grandmother Ella Susan Brown from Campbells Creek had a picture of Nancy Cackler, a Shawnee Indian Lady adopted by the Cackler family, on her wall. Nancy Cackler had six children and their names are as follows: Mary Cackler married to James Farley; Elizabeth Cackler married to a Martin; Susan Cackler married to John Nisswonder; Logan Cackler, White Cloud Cackler and Cornstalk Cackler. I don't know whether Nancy was a daughter or sister to Chief Cornstalk of the Shawnee Tribe. I am trying to piece this together. Maybe this will help you, and if it does please let me know. If you have any further information about Nancy Cackler, would you email me at wwbrinegar@cs.com or call me collect at 307-634-1581 in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Thank you, Harold Brinegar

At best she could have been a granddaughter. Cornstalk died 1777. His father died before 1750. Some possibility of a grand-daughter being in the Kanawha Valley during the age of photography, but very slim. By then most descendants had moved west. Sure looks like a Native American connection with the names but would be a stretch to connect with known facts on Cornstalk. Not impossible, just a long shot.

Dear Connie,
My Mother is Ruth Maxine Adkins-Rader from West Va.
My grandfather was Lloyd Adkins, hunnington w.va., I think my Gr-grandfather was Ira, probly from around the same area.
There is a history board with the family tree on it that starts with either White Fish or Cornstalk. I'm not sure who has it, but I saw it at the last reunion I was at in 2002 or 03.
I could call my aunt and ask her for info. My e-mail address is; mygrandmarose2002@yahoo.com
I would like to hear from you and find out how closely related we are. Thank You, Donna Adkins- Rader- Edgar

hey I'm doing my family tree and this what I found out so far
Willie (Paw) Robinson married Dolly (Maw) Robinson in November 1908 They had Charlie, Georgia, Alma, Ruby, Leslie, Mary, Jesse and Goldie.

Dolly (fry) Robinsons parents = Jesse Fry and Elizabeth (Robertson) Fry


Jesse Frys parents = Hezekiah and Eliza(adkins)

Hezekiahs parents = David Fry and Christina (adkins)

Christinas parents = Littleberry "Berry" Adkins and Nancy "White Wing"

Littleberrys parents = Parker Adkins and Mary "Blue Sky" Cornstalk

Marys father was Chief Cornstalk . Chief Cornstalk was the Chief of the Shawnee Indians. He has monuments in his honor in Point Pleasant Wva. Which is where he lived and also brutally murdered there during the revolutionary war.

Surnames: CORNSTALK

CHIEF KAUTAUGHUA (CORN STALK-ENGLISH) LIVED AT OLD CHILACOTHE, OHIO (NEAR TODAYS ZENIA, OHIO) AT THE MAIN SETTLEMENT OF THE SHAWNEE TRIBE. THE CHIEF AND ANOTHER ONE OF HIS TRIBE WERE VISITING THE FORT IN ORDER TO PREVENT (PEACE MISSION) BLOODSHED. THE LONG KNIFES HAD ALREADY BEATEN THE BATTLE OF PT. PLEASANT PREVIOUSLY. HE WAS VERYINTERESTED IN CO-EXISTANCE ALONG WITH LOGAN FOR PEACE WITH THE SETTLERS AND WAS TRYING TO PREVENT THE BRITS FROM INVOLVING THE INDIANS IN OUR REVOLUTION. A KILLING OF A SOLDIER "HUNTER" TOOK PLACE SOUTH OF OR ACROSS FROM THE FORT. SOME HOTHEADED LONG KNIFES (VIRGINIANS) MURDERED HIM IN COLD BLOOD. THE BATTLE AT PT. PLEASANT IS NOW ACCEPTED AS THE FIRST BATTLE OF OUR REVOLUTION. I BELIEVE THE FORT WAS "FT. LEWIS--NOT SURE " AND WAS GARRISONED.
MY CONNECTION IS YOUNGEST DAU. OCEANA. M. AARON-2 VAN SCYOC. GR.GM. MARY JANE VAN SCYOC AND GRF. WILEY- BESSIE-, ME.

Surnames: STACKPOLE, VAN SCYOC, CORNSTALK SHAWNEE

YES THE HEREDITY IS CORRECT BUT ACCORDING TO THE MILITARY RECORDS-- ONLY CHIEF KAUTAUGHUA (CORN STALK- ENGLISH- ONE OTHER SHAWNEE AND LATER HIS SON (ELLINIPSO)CAME LOOKING FOR HIS FATHER- HALLOWED ACROSS THE RIVER AND WAS BROUGHT OVER BY THE SOLDIERS AT THE FORT. ( THE BRITS WERE TRYING TO GET THE "FRIENDLY-- CHIEF C. AND CHIEF LOGAN , ALONG WITH THE CHEROKEE TO TAKE UP ARMS AGAINST THE SETTLERS. CHIEF KAUTAUGHUA (HE SERVED UNDER SEVERAL NAMES INCLUDING WAR CHIEF- WAS FOR CO-EXISTANCE AS WAS LOGAN NEAR WHEELING,)

THEY WERE SAFE WITH THE OFFICERS AT THE FORT (PT. PLEASANT) AND WAS OBVIOUSLY SUPPLIED LIVING QUARTERS (WHERE THEY WERE KILLED-PER RECORDS) BY TRIGGER HAPPY MOB.) ALL 3- NO PROSECUTION EVER TOOK PLACE FOR THE OBVIOUS MURDER. I HAVE NOT FOUND ANY MENTION OF FEMALES OR CHILDREN BEING INVOLED IN THE MURDER. I AM WITHIN A FEW DAYS OF 90 YEARS AND MY
GR-GM MARY JANE "ENGLISH" RUBLE LIVED (LAST HUSBAND-- I ONLY CHILD -MY GF.) WITH MY WIDOWED MOTHER, I SUPPORTED HER TILL HER DEATH AT 5 DAYS SHORT OF (105) 105 YEARS. I NEVER HEARD THAT THE FAMILY HAD INDIAN TROUBLE. WE CAME TO (W) VA WEST OF THE MTS, ABOUT 1750.

ACCORDING TO THE BOOK OLD CHILLICOTHE SEE LEGEND IN END OF BOOK BY DR, WILDCAT ALFORD, THAT THE CHIEFS SEPT. MAY BE INDEED THE REMAINS OF THE "LOST COLONY OF ROANOKE" THEY SPOKE ENGLISH AND EVEN THE ORATORY OF LOGAN TO THE PRES. OF THE U.S. IS CERTAINLY " UNBEATABLE" "ELOQUINT" FOR A TRIBE THAT DEALT MOSTLY WITH THE FRENCH. I CAN WELL UNDERSTAND HIS AGONY AT THE LOSS OF HIS FAMILY.

MY GR-GR-GM WAS YOUNGEST DAU. OF CHIEF KATAUGHUA (CORNSTALK)
"OCEANA" DIED YOUNG BY ACCIDENT.(45 ? ).
(I USE THE THEORY-KEEP IT SIMPLE AND TYPE IN CAPS THIS LAST 70 YRS B-CAUSE THAT IS HOW I STARTED AND BESIDES IT IS EASIER TO READ)

I HOPE THIS MESSAGE FINDS YOU WELL.

I HAVE READ SOME OF YOUR MESSAGES AND HOPE THAT YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP ME. OF THE THOUSANDS OF MESSAGES I HAVE READ YOURS SEEMS TO BE THE MOST RESPECTED.

MY GREAT, GREAT, GRANDFATHER WAS THE ILLEGITIMATE CHILD OF ELIZABETH SIMPSON AND ADDISON "ATTIE" BAILEY CHRISTIAN. MR. CHRISTIAN WAS THE SON OF MASTIN HARMAN CHRISTIAN. MASTIN HARMAN CHRISTIAN WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THE SON OF THOMAS BAILEY "CORNSTALK" CHRISTIAN. THOMAS BAILEY CHRISTIAN WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THE SON OF ELINIPSICO CHRISTIAN AND STANDING DEER BAILEY.

THE PROBLEM IS THAT MY GREAT, GREAT, GRANDMOTHER DID NOT MARRY ADDISON BAILEY CHRISTIAN BUT HAD TWO CHILDREN BY HIM. ELIZABETH SIMPSON GAVE HER CHILDREN HER LAST NAME. THUS WE ARE CALLED SIMPSON AND NOT CHRISTIAN. THERE IS JUST ONE PROBLEM. I HAVE TAKEN THE Y-CHROMOSOME DNA TEST AND DID VERIFY THAT THE NAME SHOULD HAVE BEEN CHRISTIAN. MY GREAT, GRANDFATHER'S DEATH CERTIFICATE DOES LIST ATTIE CHRISTIAN AS THE FATHER. I HAVE LOCATED NO BIRTH CERTIFICATE. I AM CONVINCED THAT ADDISON "ATTIE" BAILEY CHRISTIAN WAS IN FACT MY GREAT, GRANDFATHER'S FATHER. HERE IS STHE PROBLEM, MY DNA RESULTS SHOW THAT THERE IS NOT ONE DROP OF NATIVE AMERICAN BLOOD IN MY FAMILY. SINCE Y-DNA IS HANDED DOWN FROM FATHER TO SON ETC. ADDISON CHRISTIAN COULD NOT HAVE BEEN DESCENDED FROM NATIVE AMERICAN STOCK. COULD YOU PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THIS?

GOD BLESS
KEN SIMPSON
