Au-muh-su-yih is said to be her indian name. However the only one I can find with that name is a male. Im going to disconnect her from her parents for now. Until prove of heritage is found.

How did this person get connected to Attakullakulla? He wasn't in North Carolina or West Virginia, died in 1777 so wasn't fathering children in 1795. If she was born in 1764 she wasn't having children in 1816. This looks like a myth or at the least a mis-placed person.
