Yes, in fact I'm becoming fascinated by the Indian trade connection. That was so much more significant than we were taught in school!
I was completely puzzled because i seemed to have all these ancestors coming out of Tidewater Virginia, with this Indian stuff thrown in! None of it fit with who I thought I was. Then I started studying the trade connection, and everything made sense.
I actually live in East Alabama, in the heart of what was the Creek Nation, and have been doing some research on them. If I run across any accounts of Cockburns I will let you know - I wouldn't be surprised.
