I am trying to find any kind of information at all regarding (Chief) TUSQUAHOMA and the 50 families of the CHOCTAW tribe with him in Ouachita Parish, Louisiana, (later Jackson Parish,) from about 1785-1820. Any information would be greatly appreciated. There is so little 'out there' on the internet about (Chief) TUSQUAHOMA and those families that were with him in Ouachita Parish, LA and my LOTT-HATTEN family was in Ouachita Parish, LA before moving into Winn Parish in 1840. My maternal 3rd great grandparents were Frances Lucretia "Patsy" LOTT, born: abt. 1802 in AL/MS Territory, (1st wife,) and William HATTEN, born: January 01, 1800 in Tar River, Nash Co., North Carolina, son of Sarah "Sally" UNDERWOOD and Lewis Lamkin HATTEN. Frances Lucretia "Patsy" LOTT's information is a bit confusing because our particular branch of the family that was in Winn Parish, (where William HATTEN became the 1st coroner,) stands solidly by the information that we are of Native American Indian descent through Frances whom is characterized in older genealogy research as being Choctaw. She is believed by most to have been the daughter of Absalom LOTT and Martha Jane Dorsey? LIGHTFOOT whom is believed to have been the daughter of one of the Philip LIGHTFOOT men out of Virginia born there abt. 1720. There are some Cherokee LIGHTFOOT individuals that are descended, it appears, from the same British descended Virginia LIGHTFOOTs...but its still very confused. There are some people that state that Frances Lucretia "Patsy" LOTT was the daughter of this Chief TUSQUAHOMA but am not finding enough information to know anything about him nor the families that were with him. I have only found that they sold their land to a Stephen/Steven MADDOX and that a church was built on that land. Other than that I can't find anything.
In advance, I greatly thank anyone who can assist me.
