Early American Pioneers Held Captive or Killed by Indians

Welcome to the home of the descendants & relatives of Early American Pioneer Indian Captives!
Please feel free to link your ancestor's story to your homepage & to make a link back to the Indian Captives page.

The site is not exclusive to Georgia, this site is part of The Georgia GenWeb.  This site has always been and will always be for Pioneers held captive or Killed by Indians. This site is for the genealogy research of those captives or killed during Indian Conflicts and peace.

1835-1842 Second Seminole War Seminole chief Osceola refuses to honor treaties agreeing to the movement of the tribe to the west and launches a general war. More than 60,000 militiamen, volunteers and regulars participate in the campaign; 41 percent become casualties.

I am trying to gather information on the 41% causalities and the civilians that were killed and or captured in Georgia.  Please send any  information you may have to Margie Daniels

Includes Surname Index & History of the Pan-Handle, West Virginia and all other states.

Please remember while reading these stories that our Native American Indian brothers & sisters have their own stories to tell regarding the way life was for them among the whites. This web site was created for family historians descended from those who were taken captive by the Indians- a place to share the historically written stories of our ancestors. We are not a forum to discuss issues & our purpose is genealogy research.

To see complaints and threats about this web page just click here.

This will probably be the most important part of the site.  A place to post your Queries, Wills, Letters, Bible records of those that were captured.   Please do not post here if you are only searching for your Indian heritage, this site will be for those Pioneers that were captured by the Indians.  There are many great sites on each of the tribes that you will have far more information on the tribes records than we will have here.  I will try to add some links here for the different tribes for those that know which tribe their ancestors were captured by.
