Sequoyah

Sequoyah

Okay since this is our first file I will mention that according to several references, Seqoyah md a Salli Benge in 1815? So who's daughter is Sallie. I have heard that she is his second wife, U Ti Yu . I do have a copy of her 1842 claim and her claim for his military pention states that she was his surviving widow. I have also heard that he had children with several other women. Please keep in mind that his file is by no means complete and can have errors, any additional infoRmation on any of the following would be gladly accepted. When responding about this file please put Sequoyah in your subject line. If this seems to work we will add some additionals family files, who know's you might find just who you are looking for.
