After gaining further insight from Bill Deyo into the "sacred" traditions of the Patawomeck tribe and considering the question of which Pettus married Ka-Okee in the light of my own research on the Pettus family, I believe I have the right answer---Thomas Pettus, bp. 1598, in England, son of Thomas Pettus, mayor of Norwich, England, in 1614, and elder brother of Theodore Pettus mentioned in your posting. I am now writing an appendix to vol. II of my book on the Pettus family, which was nearly ready to go to the publisher when I read your message! This appendix will summarize everything I have learned about the subject in recent months and explain why I believe Thomas is the best candidate to have been Ka-Okee's husband. Thomas remarried to Elizabeth Durrent, a widow, after Ka-Okee died about 1637. DNA tests establish the link between the Jamestown Pettuses and Ka-Okee. Also, I discovered that the descendants of Thomas's son, Stephen, in Charlotte County, have independently passed down the tradition that Pocahontas was their ancestor.
