Thank you for your response...it is helpful as I knew I had Cherokee in our background and this helps me in more than one way.
John Harvey and Joseph Wesley tie us together in relation to Simon Johan Derk (later spelled "Derrick".) Simon Derk was born 1718 and married Catherine Stapleton he came from Lippe, Germany about 1740 entering Philadelphia from the ship St. Andrew (still trying to confirm this ship). Simon and Catherine lived their lives in Shenandoah, VA with some of their children moving to Berks County, PA.
I'd appreciate any details you might share regarding Derrick/Watts and especially any information regarding Chief Joseph Watts. I will put some specific details together that I have on Joseph Wesley Derrick for you as well.
