The Powhatan Nation was instrumental in saving my great grandfather's life (Robert Pollard Holmes)and once he joined the settlement, he married my great grandmother who was of either the Cherokee or Pamunkey/Mattaponi tribes. I am cherokee indian and my grandfather Walter Kenova Bradby use to be Chief before he passed away. We visited family in Front Royal; Tappahanock/Rappahanock; Grand Dad's Brother married Grand Mother's Sister; Dad's double-first cousin, Augustine Willis married Mom's Aunt, Viola Clarke.
If anyone knows the Holmes name, please contact me via e-mail. Mother: Pearl Borum Willis,(daughter-Ferdinand Borum & Pearl Mae Clark(e)Borum, Grand-daughter of Hester "Grandma Easter" Hobday & Elias Clarke.
