Nordhaus, Indian Heritage ?
This may be a long shot but, in my research of my Indian heritage I found an Indian of the Wicocomico Nation of the Powhatan Confederacy named, NORDAS or that was what was used in the NorthumberlandVA Order Books in 1670s. Many Indians took on English names in the 1680s.
Does anyone in the Nordhaus forum have any connections ? Appreciate any information.
