Genealogy Update for 29 January 2009

I continued today with the development of the manuscript Early History of the Creek Indians, especially the information pertaining to the Muskogee Indians. Judy worked on developing several different tribal pages at AccessGenealogy:
  • The Abihka Tribe
    The Abihka constituted one of the most ancient divisions of the true Muskogee, appearing in the oldest migration legends, and are reckoned one of the four "foundation towns'' of the confederacy.
  • The Holiwahali Tribe
    The first of all red or war towns among the Upper Creeks to appear in history is Liwahali, or, in the ancient form of the word, Holiwahali, a name which signifies ''to share out or divide war" (holi, war, awahali, to divide out).
  • The Hilibi Tribe
    Hill-au-bee; on Col-luf-fa-dee [kålofti="bluff "], which joins Hill-au-bee Creek, on the right side, one mile below the town. Hill-au-bee joins the Tallapoosa on its right bank, eight miles below New-yau-cau.

Judy's pages:

  • Se-Quo-Yah ~ George Gist/Guest/Guess
    In the year 1768 a German peddler, named George Gist, left the settlement of Ebenezer, on the lower Savannah, and entered the Cherokee Nation by the northern mountains of Georgia. He had two pack-horses laden with the petty merchandise known to the Indian trade.
  • Pushmataha, Choctaw Indian Chief
    A noted Choctaw, of unknown ancestry, born on the east bank of Noxuba Creek in Noxubee County, Mississippi in 1764; died at Washington D.C., Dec 24, 1824. before he was 20 years of age he distinguished himself in an expedition against the Osage, west of the Mississippi.
