Have you heard of Chief Cornstalk having a daughter named Blue Water? She supposedly had children by Parker Adkins who is an ancestor of mine. By looking at my ggrandmother's picture, you see the possible Indian characteristics. Parker fought at the Battle of Point Pleasant during the Revolutionary War. I don't know if this is true. I cannot verify it. I have never documented Cornstalk even having a daughter named Blue Moon.

Where did you find the early history? I am very interested in this line of my family. If you want, you can e-mail me direct at teacherbryant@hotmail.com. I wonder if Bluesky might have an Americanized name. My greatgrandmother is not susposed to be a descendent of Bluesky, but with her looks it is a very real possibility. Thanks for your help.

i have over the years obtained for my own research library a
number of out of print books written around 1900. i have studied treaties , accounts of treaties and who was present,etc. there is no written history of the shawnee. dr. alford the first shawnee to attend college wrote a written language for them about 1875 (?).

there exists many versions of lineage, many of which have misunderstandings and proves verbal history is essentially correct but names get jumbled.

my gr-gm lived with my family and died at 10 days short of 105. (one hundred five years). i supported her for many years. she was "completely lucid and just went to sleep and passed over during the night"

Surnames: Adkins, Fry, Cornstalk, Littleberry
I have just discovered a reference to a Mary "Blue Sky" Cornstalk as a wife of Parker Vincent Adkins. Marriage date was supposedly 1767. Is this the couple you have in your family tree? Do you have information regarding Parker Vincent Adkins that you might be able to share? I have found a marriage to Mary Polly Fry (1754), and many children. I am trying to distinguish who, in fact, were his wives and which children go with which mother. Any help will be greatly appreciated. You may contact me directly at my personal email: nigmal.melanie@gmail.com.
Thank you,
Melanie Mann
