There is family tradition that states that there is a Milam-Powhatan/Pocahontas connection. The Amonsoquath Band list Milam as one of the surnames descended from Pocahontas. The Milam family has also produced two Native American Chiefs- J.B. Milam of the Cherokee Nation (1938-1948) and James N. Milam of the Seminole Nation (1979-1985). Milams are one of the first families of the Cherokee and are also prominent among the Creek Nation (see the Dawes Report of 1898).
