Notes for PRINCIPAL CHIEF MOYTOY: The research for descendants of Moytoy is an ongoing effort, I have ordered microfilm copies of the Drennen, Hester and Chapman Rolls as well as "Cherokee History...." by Emmett Starr. Please check the source for a person or item, some are from other researchers from FamilyTreeMaker, LDS Library, and internet finds, some are from Cherokee Rolls, Cherokee Census, Miller applications and books by and about the Cherokee Indians. If there is no source listed, that means I am unsure or the person I got the information from is unsure and these have not been verified. The names that are in all "caps" are my direct blood line. Use any information you want, but please remember if there is no source listed to use the information only as a guide to further research. You may contact me through e-mail at [email protected]

2. CLOGOITTAH2 MOYTOY (PRINCIPAL CHIEF1) was born Abt. 1705. She married CHRISTIAN GOTTILIEB PRIBER.
Notes for CLOGOITTAH MOYTOY: Note from source, the actual name of the woman that married Priber is unknown.
Notes for CHRISTIAN GOTTILIEB PRIBER: This quote is on page 68 from "The Cherokees" by Grace Steele Woodwand copyright 1963 University of Oklahoma Press, Norman, OK. ("The Cherokees" is volume 65 in The Civilization of the American Indians Series.)
"One of the Frenchmen who came to the Cherokee country and established headquarters there around 1736 wa Christian Gottlieb Priber, who represented himself as a Jesuit priest. Priber donned the Cherokee apparel and, outwardly at least, adapted himself to all the Cherokee ways and customs, thus winning a number of converts to the French cause. Onconostota, the war chief, was one of Priber's converts, and so persuaded many of his people to support Priber's erratic plan to make a communistic republic out of the Cherokee Nation. Taking the title of "His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State," Priber asserted that he had received from Moytoy, the Cherokee emperor, this title and permission to organize the tribe into the form of government just mentioned. In this government, all Cherokees were to be equal; goods were to be held in common; children were to be the property of the state; marriage was to be abolished; and each Cherokee was to work for the common good of the Nation, his only personal property to be books, paper, pen and ink."
"However, Priber's influence on Oconostota and the other converts was weakened by his captuare in 1739 by English traders, when he was en route to Fort Toulouse to render a report of his activities to the French. Priber was turned over to officials in the Georgia colony, and spent the remainder of his life in the Frederica prison. However, Priber's influence, though diminished, lived on in certain Cherokee settlements for some years. Priber converts, for example blamed the scourage of smallpox in 1738, that reduced the Cherokee population by half, on the English, whom Priber had taught the Cherokees to hate. Priber converts also accused the English of planting smallpox germs in the trading goods sold to the Cherokee."
This quote on page 252 of "History of the American Indians" by James Adair first published in London, 1775. (The book is a reprint by Samuel Cole Williams, LL.D. in 1930)
"In the year 1736, the French sent into South-Carolina, one Priber, a gentleman of a curious and speculative temper. He was to transmit them a full account of that country,

and proceed to the Cheerake nation, in order to seduce them from the British to the French interest. He went, and though he was adorned with every qualification that constitutes the gentleman, soon after he arrived at the upper towns of this mountainous country, he exchanged his clothes and every thing he brought with him, and by that means, made friends with the head warriors of great Telliko, which stood on a branch of the Missisippi. More effectually to answer the design of his commission, he ate, drank, slept, danced, dressed, and painted himself, with the Indians, so that it was not easy to distinguish him from the natives, -he married also with them, and being endued with a strong understanding and retentive memory, he soon learned their dialect, and b gradual advances, impressed them with a very ill opion of the English, representing them as a fraudulent, avaritious, and encroaching people: he at the same time, inflated the artless savages, with a prodigious high opion of their own importance in the American scale of power, on account of the situation of their country, their martial disposition, and the great number of their warriors, which would baffle all the efforts of the ambitious and illdesigning British colonist.

Notes for TSI-YU-GANSI-NI "DRAGGING CANOE" MOYTOY: This quote on page37 of "Nancy Ward: Cherokee Chieftainess Dragging Canoe: CherokeeChickamauga War Chief" by Pat Alderman, Copyright 1978, printed by The Overmountain Press.

As submitted by Nonie Webb
"While a young boy, [The Canoe] this future Chief wanted to accoumpany his father, Attakullakulla, and a Cherokee War Party going to battle the Shawnee. Attakullakulla flatly refused the young boy permission to go; but he slipped away from home ahead of the War Party and hid in a dugout canoe he knew the warriors must use. When the warriors arrived at the portage and discovered the determined lad, there was much teasing. attakullakulla told his son that if he could carry the conie across the portage he could go along; so the young boy grabbed one end of the canoe and started dragging it through the sand. The excited warriors shouted encouragement, saying, "Tsi.yuGansi.ni Tsi.yu Gansi.ni," which translated means he is dragging the canoe;" and Dragging Canoe was his name from then on."
From the same book on page 73, "Chickamauga's growth and power, under Dragging Canoe's leadership, reached its peak during the years 178-1790. The War Chief's fame as a staunch, courageous warrior and organizer was well established among eastern tribes, both north and south. Chiefs and warriors of the Creeks, Choctaws, and Shawnee respected Dragging Canoe as the strong man of the Cherokee-Chickamauga Nation. His name, as well as those of hes Lieutenants - Bob Benge, John Watts, The Glass, Turtle at Home, Richard Justice, The Bench, Doublehead, Black Fox and others - cast fear throughout the white frontier. The Canoe depended on these Chiefs to carry on the fight against the Americans; and his two brothers, Little Owl and The Badger, served him faithfully as emissaries to neighboring tribes and friendly northern chiefs."
