Re: Bemo Names/Family
I beleive John Bemo is related to Chief Osceola or also known as Billy Powell.Billy Powell was a
Red Stick Indian that was born in the Tallassee, AL area about 1804.I believe John Bemo is
related to him on the next generation as a cousin or possible two generations down.I do not have my
notes handy.There is much controversy about some relatives in my line, with sketchy gov't
docs, or the very few docs with many flawed newspaper accounts going way back.Some Indians went
west to OK and some stayed and married into "white", Spanish or "black" families.
I would really like to see a picture of him, to get an idea of what they family may have looked like.
Could you also let me know who his parents were?I would like to know more about him.Patricia Wickman
wrote a book about Chief Osceola and had a family tree printed out. I think some of the generations
are sceptical and I would like to know if it is straight or not.
Thanks, many thanks,
