The Barron Family was from the Rock Hill, South Carolina area. Passports were issued to Samuel and Thomas Barron to travel through the Creek Nations. Samuel Barron was the father of Thomas, and Lashoma a Catawba Indian was the mother of Samuel. Indian Land Presbyterian Church of Rock Hill South Carolina was built on land purchased from her tribe.
The name Lashoma comes from the Siouan - Iriquoi, which is the origination (lineage) of the Catawba Tribe (nation). Catawba means "The River People".
