Virginia Memory: English and Powhatan Indian Treaty


August 12, 2010

I know that I promised more information on the chiles family, but I am stopping for a little bit to provide you the reader with a bit of information to help your search in Virginia.

First you must look at the Library of Virginia website. It is a wealth of information and I was lucky enough to find today a copy of the Indian treaty of 1646. You will find the link above. So I have actually found some information on the Chiles family for you because Walter Chiles signed the Treaty. Good stuff.

This is an incredible resource and a joy to read. You will find such links as the Virginia Memory Room, newspapers, informative blog sites. A civil war buff will love this site. I will be researching the Virginia Library collection in the future. It took me only a few minutes to find the above treaty. There is no telling what else is waiting in the sites for me to find.

If you have a family member that may have been a slave in the Tennessee area, you may want to research the below site. The website is in progress. They are listing runaway slave notices in newspapers.
