I am looking for information on James R. Prickett (b. ~1803-1804, d. after 1872), the probable first son of Richard “Captured by Indians” Prickett.So far, this is what I have:
James R. Prickett (b. ~1803-1804, d. after 1872) lived in Allegan and Leelanau Counties, Michigan and appears in the 1860 census in Leelanau.He is known to be a “half-breed” and an interpreter.He last appears in property records on 26 Jun 1872 in Leelanau County.He married twice (his first wife is unknown), last to Elizabeth O-Mosh-Ke-Day-Se-Quay on 22 Nov 1854 in Grand Traverse County (he was 51, she was 26).He had at least one son with his first wife (Joseph, b. ~1838, d. 21 Jan 1900, m. ~1860 to Mary Ann Mayisce or Mary Mes-Ka-To-To-Kiew) and five daughters by Elizabeth.They were Nancy (b. ~1851), Anna (b. ~1852, m. to Peter James), Sally (b. ~1855), Mary Chek-Wan-Noh-Kah (b. ~1857, m. to Peter Pa-Kwau-Ge or Pe-Quon-Gay), and Betsy (b. ~1859).
All were members of the Ottawa/Odawa tribe, but only Anna is shown as appearing on the Durrant Rolls of 1908, though descendants of the rest also appear.
Any additional information would be greatly appreciated.
