writing is one of my weak areas, so can someone with good writing skills write a detailed biography for his historical person.

here's his baptism record https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:9392-FM8C-N?i=301&wc=3J4T-FM9%3A171936201%2C171936202%2C172206301&cc=1874591

You can find more on wikipedia and on sites such as this link:https://books.google.com/books?id=rcdkmohiuuQC&pg=PA722&lpg=PA722#v=onepage&q&f=false

 

I'm in process of adding more of his ancestors.

Katy, I recommend you add those and any other sources to the profile itself. Then we can help you flesh out the biography.
ok i added a few links/sources to his page. Also, i'd be careful about mentioning his 'race' since some sources give conflicting information(including primary sources of his ancestors)

Katy,

To get things started you could paraphrase from the introduction to the Wikipedia article, citing it as the source, naturally. I would leave out the opinions. Follow the wikitree style guide not to copy and paste.

ok, just paraphrased the beginning part of his wikipedia page- minus opinions and 'drunken indian' characterization quote included on the wikipedia page.
Thank you. This provides the basics, the link to Wikipedia provides detail for those who are interested.
