Zachariah U'Tsa'Ta'Wa' Fish was born in the Cherokee Nation probably about 1775. As with most early Cherokee, his parents are unknown. His wife was called Elizabeth. They were the parents of several children, but only one, Nathaniel lived to adulthood. [1] The family was Removed to Indian Territory where Zachariah died before the census of 1851. [2]

Now that he’s cleaned up and sourced I think he’ll be OK without. You can makeme the manager.

Is there any reason he needs project protection?

Zachariah Fish was real Cherokee person and was the father of Nathaniel. I will correct and source their bios.

Jessica, this part of James Hicks' Cherokee Lineages appears to have been fabricated. The Native Americans project is working through such profiles and detaching them from the tree. I don't see a response to Kathie's question below from last December. The project would like to detach this profile from both the father listed here (also fictional) and from Nathaniel Fish. Any objections?

Is there any documentation other than James Hicks' unsourced tree that Zachariah was the son of Sour Mush?
