In Reply to: Nash - Choctaw connection? by John Sullivan of 231

If Ben signed that treaty, he did it under an Indian name.
Ben does appear on the Spanish census of Atascoso in 1826 in Tejas (Texas), then part of Mexico. Long way to travel to sign treaty in 1830.
His parents are said to be Thomas NASH and Anna GOIN or Emily SLATER.
Ben & Hannah's children are believed to be: Benjamin Jr., Reason [probably namesake of Reason Bowie], Nancy, Calvin, Joseph and a yet undetermined girl.
Thomas, however is said to have been a native of Chowan County, North Carolina; not known for Choctaw habitation.
Good Luck
