  1. Note that Cherokee Chief Dragging Canoe is also listed as a son of Chief Attakullakulla. Attakullakulla apparently signed the Treaty of Sycamore Shoals, ceding parts of Cannatuckahoe (Kentucky) to the Colonials, or early United States. His son, Dragging Canoe, also known as The Canoe, left the Sycamore Treaty Grounds, refused to sign, and went on the warpath from Kentucky for years.

  3. I love studying my ancestry thru Moytoy and SuGhi and I find more info all the time. I was thrilled to find Moytoys parents and grandparents.I was also suprised to find out that they were Euros. The Native bloodline finds its way back in thru some Cherokee and Shawnee spouses. Its a great history, there are a lot of different takes on it but Im just proud to be who and what I am always.Its so exciting to make new discoveries . I love to think we are breathing air they all breathed and their blood pulses like fire thru our veins.I pray that our heritage, our culture and languages never die. I am from the line of Elizabeth McDaniel and James Thomas Essary.

  4. One version of Moytoy, Maytoy, Maytoya, Maytog, Maytag, etc, is the Cherokee spelling: Mo'Doi or similar spellings. This confirms traditional Cherokee stories and the fact of the Cherokee Maytoy line is provable up until this very day, including the Doublehead and other lines related to Maytoy like Aaron Redbird Brock. Europeans married into the line, but are not the the origin of the line. The same is true for various links to the Cherokee Emperor(s)lines connected to the Cherokee Uku and Uchi (Yuchi) and Natchez(Natchers) and Indian American Sun Emperor lines with ties to somewhat like the Aztec related to the Toltec (Tali)and Taki (Tackett)Cherokee lines. Indians are the origin of the lines.

  5. Axchuse my anglish in the above posting, the point is that the Cherokee Indian, and Native American Cherokee and various relatives from full blood to major and minor bloods, are very real then and now, including Doublehead (Doublhead and Head and other spelllings)family lines linked to the Maytoy (Mo'Doi)lines.

  6. "Anonymous" - small world. I'm from the line of Elizabeth McDaniel and James Thomas Essary also. My last name, as a matter of fact, is Essary. I like you am fascinated by the blood that runs in our veins and hope to honor those that went before us by my words and actions.
