I am looking for any information confirming that Job Beaver Parker was the adopted son of Chief Black Beaver.Job was born around 1845 and our family history states he lived in an orphanage in Pennsylvania until he was adopted by Black Beaver.I am not sure what age he would have been when adopted or how accurate this story is. Job was married to Laura Duncan (I believe she may have been his 2nd or 3rd wife) and he died on Mar. 29, 1908. We have a record listing his mother as Ka Tuck See but I don't know if that is accurate. Job's Delaware name was Sha Wah Na Quit Ta and he is listed on the Dawes roll as a Delaware/Cherokee. Job is my great grandfather through his daughter Emma Jane Parker (with Laura Duncan).
All information I find on Black Beaver is that he had 4 daughters, no mention of a son, adopted or otherwise.I can't confirm the name of his wife (or wives) either.Any help in finding documentation supporting this history or who Job's biological parents are, would be appreciated.
