Cherokee Genealogy - Foreman and others

John Anthony Foreman, born 1744; died October 17, 1817, TN.

He was the son of 16. John Anthony Foreman. He married (1) 9. Susie Kahtahyah "Cherokee" Rattling-Gourd 1775, TN.

He married (2) Elizabeth Watee Gurydaygle 9. Susie Kah-tah-yah "Cherokee" Rattling-Gourd, born 1755, TN; died 1830. She was the daughter of 18. Teetarskeeskee Rattling-Gourd.

Notes for John Anthony Foreman: Ref; Emmet Starr, Foreman 1, A26
Toward the end of the American Revolution, a Scottish trader named Anthony Foreman met and married Susie Rattling-Gourd, a full blood Cherokee woman of the Paint Clan. Together, Anthony and Susie established a home in the small town of Ooyougilogi about 20 miles northeast of the present site of Rome, Georgia. Some researchers say that Anthony's wife Susie died sometime around 1800, at which time he married her maternal niece, Elizabeth "Watee" Gurdaygle. But information taken from church records show that Susie was still living in 1828. At that time she is shown by a missionary as an elderly full blooded Cherokee woman in his church and going by the name of Nancy Fields. (Taken from Candy Creek Mission Church) By then Anthony had been dead 10 years and had raised a second family by Elizabeth. Now it could have been a polygamous marriage, which was not uncommon in those days. But evidence concerning Anthony and his two wives suggests that he and Susie were divorced (his will mentions only Elizabeth as his wife). He probably married Elizabeth around 1799 or 1800, since his first child by her, Archibald, was born on January 1, 1801. The reason for the assumption of a divorce between Anthony and Susie is that there was a span of about 13 years between his two sets of children, which makes me think there was a period during that time when he did not have a wife. Nevertheless, Anthony Foreman was the father of 12 children, six by each wife.

There were five daughters and seven sons, with the first child, John, being about 36 years older than the last one. They all grew to adulthood and all married. One of the children was Thomas, another was Stephen, the renown Presbyterian minister and missionary. Names of the other children were Catherine, Nannie, Sallie, Richard, Archibald, Elsie, Edward, Mary and Alexander. By profession, Anthony Foreman was a trader, and in spite of the large number of children, he provided well for his family. He was especially eager that his sons receive a full education and frequently impressed upon them the need to go to school. The girls were probably taught spinning and weaving.

Census records of that day always stated the number of spinsters and weavers in each household, which shows that these trades were considered very important. Making clothing was a worthwhile task in colonial households. On small farms, the women planted and tended a patch of flax, harvested the crop, spun the yarn and wove it into linen. They wove Woolen cloth from yarn spun from the fleece of sheep. The linens and woolens were colored with dyes made from certain barks, berries and roots.

In the Foreman home, both English and Cherokee were spoken. By custom the boys were taught to speak English like their father, while the girls spoke Cherokee like their mothers. As a general rule, early day Cherokees spoke better English and were better educated than the average settlers of the South and West. One reason for this was the early marriages of the Cherokee women to English, Scotch, Irish and French men who came from Europe in the 1700's. Most of these men were well educated and often came from aristocratic families. Their culture was passed down to their children and grandchildren.

Anthony Foreman died on October 17, 1817, several years before members of his family and other Cherokee Indians would go on the "Trail of Tears". One of his sons, Archibald Foreman, would die on that trip. Anthony had made a written will a few days before his death in his 73rd year. By this time, the six older children were all married and had families of their own. The ages of the younger six were approximately 1 through 16, and it was to them and his widow Elizabeth that he bequeathed the farm in probably what is now McMinn Co, Tennessee. And to his son Archibald, he left his house and other real property. The family continued to reside there on the farm until sometime after the Treaty of 1819 when they removed to the Nation on the south side of Hiwassee, in the same area where the farm was located, McMinn Co, TN.

Elizabeth Foreman died on January 8, 1845.

Biography of JOHN STUART written by John L.Nichols states that:

Nancy Foreman was the daughter of a Scottish trader and a Cherokee woman. John Anthony Foreman, son of Rev. Stephen Foreman, states on his Miller Application that his grandfather was from Scotland, said to be Scotch-Irish. I have not been able to locate birth information in Pennsylvania. The British Colonial Papers include a letter, dated October 1779, by Robert Due to Alexander Cameron (Royal agent to the Cherokees). Due (probably the grandfather of Tiana Rogers, Cherokee wife of Sam Houston) mentions Anthony Foreman, whose illness prevented his delivery of the letter to Cameron. The letter concerns a number of white men, residing among the Chickamaugas, who are about to join war parties attacking the American frontier.

All records passed down to the Foreman family has always stated that Susie was a member of the Paint Clan as does Rev. Holland's notes (see Catherine Foreman).

One application of Guion Miller (roll number to be placed here) states that Susie Gourd, 1st wife of Anthony Foreman, was a daughter of a Cherokee named "Teetarskeeskee".

Children of John Foreman and Susie Rattling-Gourd are:

Notes for John Anthony "Cherokee" Foreman: Blood: 1/2 Cherokee Clan: Paint Clan (Susie Gourd) Emmet Starr, Foreman 1-1 Starr lists two wives for John Foreman; Nannie Drumgoole nee Doublehead and Ruth Drumgoole nee Springston. John's children are listed by Starr as five sets of half-siblings. A statement of James Madison Bell indicates that Elizabeth's (one of the two Elizabeth's in the family) mother was Jennie Foster. Marriage #1: Female Richard's Mother Marriage #2: Female John's Mother Marriage #3: Nannie Drumgoole Marriage #4: Jennie Doublehead Foster Marriage #5: Ruth Drumgoole Nannie Drumgoole and Ruth Drumgoole are sisters. In Emmet Starr "Old Cherokee Families" it lists Richard Foreman as his first born. Starr then puts a dash between children, meaning they have a different mother. I am not sure who Richard and his brother John mothers are as only two spouses were listed by Starr. I have found no documentation as to who their mothers might be. The next half siblings are James and Elizabeth Foreman, then another half-sister named Elisabeth. Page 363. In Cherokee families, the children are raised by their mother and their mothers brothers and/or family. Because of this custom, I do not believe that Richard and John's mother was Nannie Drumgoole. Her children are listed as Bird Doublehead, James Foreman and Anderson, Isaac and Edley Springston. Because of their involvement together in various conflicts among the factions in the Cherokee Nation it would lead you to believe that they were all raised together.

The Cherokee James Bigby was born in 1779 in that portion of the Cherokee Nation that was fighting, with British support, against the American rebels in the Carolinas, Virginia , & Georgia. Thus, it is likely that the white father of James Bigby was a Tory, residing with the Chickamauga band of Cherokees. The diaries kept by Moravian missionaries at Spring Place, GA in the early 1800's suggest that a white man named Samuel Bigby was very likely the father of James Bigby (whose cousin Peggy Scott was the principal wife of Chief James Vann, the patron of the Spring Place school). According to Rev. Jeremiah Horn, 1794-1867: He lived in Amohee District, Tennessee. James was interested in education . He and his brother-in-law, Thomas Foreman and Hair Conrad petitioned for a school to be established by the American Board of Commissioners for foreign missions. The school was established in 1824 called Candy's Creek Mission. After the Cherokee removal one of the eighteen schools in the Cherokee Nation in 1845 was at their home. April 8, 1813, James Bigby wrote Return J. Meigs for a permit to run a ferry on the Tennessee River near mouth of Baker's Creek and to build a road from it to meet road opened by Rogers. He had already gotten permission from Major Delso, proprietor of the other side of the river.

iv. William "Cherokee" Emory, Jr., 1/4 Cherokee of the Long Hair Clan (Mary Grant); born 1750; died in Will's Knob, Pennsyvania. Will Emory, the renegade Cherokee who ran with the Sahwnees and became known as Captain Will. The name is somewhat famous in frontier Kentucky annuals on Boonesboro. Captain Will doubtlessly has many mixed-blood descendants around today. Will Emory's original village was called Will's Town, and it was located on Will's Creek in what is now Maryland. As the settlements of whites crept westward, Capt. Will was forced to utilize the Kentucky lands as hunting grounds. He and his Shawnee/Cherokee hunting party surprised and captured Daniel Boone on his first trip to Kentucky, Capt. Will released them with a warning never to return. In 1774, when Logan's band of Mingoes were raiding the white settlements on the Virginia frontier, "a large man much whiter than the rest" who "talked good English" was reportedly in the war party . "Some think Capt. John Logan is about yet--others that it is Wll Emery, a half-breed Cherokee..he is known to be in the Shawneese interest..he was the interpreter when Col. Donelson run the line, and it was he who robbed Knox and Skaggs..." (Draper MS 3QQ117) Capt. Will spoke excellent English, and seems to have a hearty sense of humor. He was on good terms with Daniel Boone during Boone's second captivity and discussed the prospects of taking Boonesboro with him. Capt. Will and Blackfish led the indians during the seige. (See Faragher, pp 80-82, 156-157, 164, 179.)

According to a history of Bedford County, PA (Bedford: The Kernal of Greatness, p.17), some of the women of the county were captured by Shawnees and Capt. Will was believed to have been the leader of the war party. These warriors and their captives were tracked by a company of their relatives. The main party was not overtaken, but one of the pursuers, George Powell, later waylaid Capt. Will at his campsite on Will's Knob, took his scalp, and buried the body there. Some of Capt. Will's "immediate descendants intermarried with white people...early in the past century they were living in Pennsylvania, near the Allegeny County line." (pp 162-164).
