Descendants of Jonas Squires

This is some very interesting data to trace. Some of my cousins turned me on to the story and we all need help in tracing it back to colonial days. I [and others] hit a stumbling block with JONAS.  Perhaps together we can find the key to tying us to JOHN SQUIRES, chief of the MATTAMUSKEET INDIANS. Here's the story:

Near Accomack, Virginia on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay, Indians by the names of Charles Squires and Long Tom were documented as mixed-breed Indians who were employed as interpreters for the Colonies in Chesapeake Bay. Long Tom came into conflict with the authorities and was tried for raping a white woman. He was found innocent of the rape but guilty of cohabiting with her. He was severely beaten and not heard of again until he emerges, with Charles Squires, as one of the great men of the Arrowmuskeet Indians in Yawpim (Semmes 1940, Shepard/Willard 2002). At this same time Samuel Elks inherited land next to a man named Gibbs, also in Yawpim. The Gibbs name is listed as one of the "Great Men" of the Yawpim Indians (Shepard/Willard). By 1713 the Tuscarora War broke out. At its conclusion, Henry Gibbs was living on the Outer Banks next to where deeds were found for William, Mary and Elizabeth Elks, who were listed on six deeds as Hatteras (Croatan) Indians. Samuel Elks was located on Buck Ridge, an Indian site near Gum Neck (the hypothetical site of the Indian village called Tramaskecooc on the 1588 Theodore deBry maps). Charles and John Squires and Long Tom, in 1736, appear as the leaders of the large Indian reservation at Mattamuskeet right after the Tuscarora War was over. It is probable that these aforementioned Indians were in the swamps of the Alligator flood plain waging guerrilla warfare and may have been the ones responsible for the demise of one hundred colonists (Shepard/Willard).
The grave of Heber A. Squyars, direct descendant of John Squires, "Ye Mattamuskeet Indian King", was found at Gum Neck.  You can find a picture of the gravesite on http://www.ncgenweb.us/tyrrell/TYRRELL.HTM
The grave of Heber A. Squyars, direct descendant of John Squires, "Ye Mattamuskeet Indian King", was found at Gum Neck.

After the Tuscarora War, two names appear as the Kings of the Mattamuskeet Indians in Hyde County from about 1729 to about 1745 or '46. John Squires and Long Tom are two of the principle men of the Mattamuskeet tribe. Both men are found 30 years before this date living in Maryland and are used extensively as interpreters in negotiations between the governments of Maryland and various Indian groups in peace negotiations. Contemplating how these two migrated to North Carolina was not forthcoming with a reasonable conclusion prior to a new possible migration methodology indicating that the areas Indian population stems from the lost colony . The Elks family and the rest of the members of the Lost Colony Center for Science and Research are in awe of the possible ramifications of ths theory.  We will never have a way of knowing if any genetic traces of the Lost Colony have survived in the peoples of east Carolina. If this genetic material has assimilated into the Native American cultures, the place to start looking is in a small town on the shores of the Pamlico River called Chocowinity, North Carolina. It can only be imagined what alarm, terror and degradations could have driven the complete memory of a culture so far down and deep that any consciousness or memory of their Native American ancestry has totally DISAPPEARED.

 

NOTE: The Empire of Powhatan inclded several cousin tribes including the Nansemond, Arrowmuskeet and Mattamuskeet. The Nansemond Indian Tribe are the modern day remnant of Powhatan Empire. Why is this important, Chief Powhatan was Chief-King of the confederacy of Algonquin Tribes that included many cousin tribes including the Mattamuskeet and Arrowmuskeet. He was also the father of Pochahontas, liberator of John Smith. When the English colonists landed in Virginia in May, 1607, Pocahontas is described as being of age 11 or 12. One colonist describes her turning cartwheels with the boys of the settlement, through the marketplace of the fort - while naked.

As a result of her influence the Colonists survived and went on to build this great nation of ours. Pochantas married John Rolfe, became a Christian and spread the news of Jesus Love wherever she went, especially to her indian cousins. Rebecca Rolfe had children and went on to live and die in England.      

The death of Pocahontas and the subsequent death of her father led to deteriorating relations between the colonists and the natives. Thomas, son of Pocahontas and John Rolfe, stayed in England when his father returned to Virginia, first in the care of Sir Lewis Stuckley and then John's younger brother Henry. John Rolfe died in 1622 and Thomas returned to Virginia in 1635 at twenty. He was left the plantation of his father, and also thousands of acres left him by his grandfather, Powhatan. Thomas Rolfe apparently met once in 1641 with his uncle Opechancanough, upon petition to the Virginia governor. Thomas Rolfe married a Virginia wife, Jane Poythress, and became a tobacco planter, living as an Englishman.

Pocahontas' many well-connected descendents through Thomas include Edith Wilson, wife of President Woodrow Wilson, and Thomas Mann Randolph, Jr., husband of Martha Washington Jefferson who was the daughter of Thomas Jefferson and his wife Martha Wayles Skelton Jefferson.

The people of Rebecca Rolfe's original indian tribe are still alive today and active in Nansemond Virginia. Cut and paste the following link to see their website:

Croatan/Mattamuskeet Surnames Found in the Search for "The Lost Colony"

The Lost Colony Research Center has identified the following European surnames as having a strong correlation and identification with the Croatan and Mattamuskeet Indians from Dare, Tyrrell and Hyde Counties. These names are listed in their order of importance relating to this study (the only name on this list that may be an original Indian name is Carrow). All of these names have many variant spellings; the ones used here are the most common and are found spelled this way on the most important identifiable documents.

Elks, Gibbs, Buck, Pinkham, Carrow, Padgett, Mayo, Berry, Pain, Brooks, Squires, Barbour, Cahoon, Hodges, Farrow, Jennette, Whahab, Pierce
