I am interested in obtaining information about the descendant's of Chief "King Hagler" of the Catawba Tribe. Information which has been given to me has family legend that King Hagler had a son, Jacob Hagler, who lived to be over 100, and that Jacob had daugher, Susan Hagler, who married John Overton, in Jasper Co., GA on 16 nov. 1817.I probably descend from that John Overton and Susan Hagler.
However, information in "The Catawba Indians, The People of the River" by D.S.Brown, has King Hagler stating in 1761 "I am an old Man, I have no Son, but a Grand Son, whom I have brought hither to see your honour.He will succeed me and I have recommended him to love the English the same as I have done, and I hope he will do so." see page 244. That grandson seems to have been Jacob Scott.Jacob Scott died "at the advanced age of one hundred years." Brown, pg. 244.
Was there a Jacob Hagler and a Susan Hagler in the Catawba tribe?Was Jacob Scott and Jacob Hagler the same person?Do you have information about King Hagler's family? Where should I go for information about King Hagler?
