I got an email from someone who addressed me as Mr. Brown. asking about Thomas Brown and his son William who after captivity and return to York District in the Carolinas, changed his name to Jacob Gardner.
In my research,I have found records of another Brown family that lived in the mid 1700's near present day Columbia South Carolina.Unfortunately I didn't copy down the records.
To answer JSullivans question.To my knowledge Thomas only had one son, William.This was per his will that passed all his property to his son, born of a free Catawba Woman about 1729.Thomas died about the same time William was captured by Northern Indians associated with the French of Canada, and was sold as a slave probably to the Shawnee, Married a Miami Woman who was also probably a slave of the Shawnee.
I was not aware of so many captives being made a slave by the capturing tribes, or sold to other tribes.This was quite common in the 17th and 18th centuries.
Many captured Indians in the south was sent to Barbadoes to work in the Sugar Plantations, and exchanged for Negroes who were brought north to work in the Indigo and Rice and eventually cotton fields.
