Anita, I just wrote you on ancestry -- where we've talked before. I believe we have Delaware Tribe ancestry in our Fivecoat line. Perhaps the Knight's as well. I did some research on Michael Knight (who married/had children with Martha Hoagland) -- and there are several references to the Tuscarawas area. Looking at the Tuscarawas wiki, here:,_Ohio - reveals some Delaware tribe activity in the late 1700's. You can also look up the chief's wiki: -- and btw these two pages there are a bunch of references to: Coshocton, Killbuck, etc. -- places where our Knight's and Fivecoats eventually got to. Delaware tribespeople were known to have helped settlers move west and even being among them as part of their groups. I feel the history of the Delaware tribe in that specfic area is worth researching and in Tuscarawas -- and oculd very well expose the true story of our lineage. - ZJ
