Powhatan Chief had many daughters that were called princess by white men. Some white men married some of these daughters or Indian women to establish relationships with the chief. To call them princess was a verbal tradition not actual title. I do not have evidence, only DNA connections & verbal history
I have not found evidence of who Pheobe was either, other then several verbal stories (including my own verbal story that was passed down). This is why I have asked for help. I hope to find the truth or evidence of this story. There must be some truth to the story for several people to have the same verbal stories who have never met. The West Virginia/Virginia/Ohio Redmans were a mixed race of White, Black & Indian depending on the branch & marriages. This is why DNA connects to Gates. It is my hopes to solve this question with evidence as I do not like listing ancestors based on verbal history alone. Although all verbal history so far has turned out to be truth. DNA is a good tool in showing such evidence, but after many generations the Nationalities from long ago do wash out. Therefore it makes it difficult when researching this far back. If you are related in any way to this, I would like to share Stories, Family Tree or DNA. It is my hopes to connect families without prejudism and mean no shame in any family secrets that may be revealed. I am proud of All my Nationalities.
