Tame Doe was fictional; what about her spouses and children?

Another fictional Cherokee. Typically we detach such profiles from spouses and children, unless they are also fictional and we need (for some reason) to keep them together as a unit.

What do we know about the other family members attached to Tame Doe?

"Tame Doe" is the fictional name given to the mother of Nan-ye-hi/Nancy Ward in a novelization of her life.  Almost nothing is known of Nancy's parents  Little is known about her mother except that she was a member of the Wolf Clan and was possibly a sister of Attakullakulla, who is described as Nancy's uncle.  Nancy's father is also unknown; although some accounts say he was an adopted Delaware Indian.  Both of the men attached to "Tame Doe" as husbands appear to be fictional.

Nancy Ward had one brother, a man named Tuskeegeeteehee, or Longfellow.  

Nancy Ward did not have a sister named "Ajosta".  The "Ajosta" attached to "Tame Doe's" profile is an unrelated woman, the wife of Chief Broom and the mother of Nancy, the wife of Chief Charles Hicks.  This woman and her family are clearly documented in the Moravian Diaries.
