Re: William Holcombe Bolling to Wyndham Robertson
Kathryn, I think you're entitled to keep "Pocahontas" as part of your name and I hope that you have!In any event you have a truly remarkable sense of humor.
It would be interesting to know if, among the actual descendants of Pocahontas, the given name itself has come back into usage in the wake of the Disney production in the 1990s."Pocahontas" and "Powhatan" popped up for a few generations among the descendants of Robert Bolling (1738-1775) of Buckingham Co., VA, but I haven't seen either in that branch of the family lately.Perhaps these names have persisted in other branches.
Thank you for your very interesting and humorous response to my posting.Best, Fred
