Chowan History

Posted by chowanoke on December 29, 2009 at 6:23 AM

I've been going pretty in depth into the colonial records, as well as John Smith's History of Virginia, Lanes account of the Roanoke expedition  and others to gain as many first hand accounts and original references as I can on them. Wth this I've been able to get a rough timeline of events which I will post in the wiki section of the site, that way it can be fluid and ongoing. I also found a great website for the Coastal Carolna Indian Center, which promotes the history, genealogy and preservation of the coastal Carolinan tribes (Algonquian, but also Tuscarora, Saponi, etc). i have now linked to this site so check out the links section. They have a great section on the language of the Algonquian people of the area.
