Notes for SARAH HUGHES: Benjamin Hawkins (US Agent to Creek Indians who passed through the Cherokee Nation in 1796) hired two Cherokee interpreters; Sallie Hughes and a half-blood, Mrs Sallie Waters.Sallie Waters' aunt, was the wife of Chief Sour Mush (Ogosata).HAWKINS PAPERS 12/1/1796 (pages 20-21) Sallie's son, George Morgan Waters, told John Howard Payne a strange story concerning his cousin, James Vann, Vann's uncle, Charles Hughes, and Old Chief Sour Mush, all members of the same Clan. [In accordance with the Cherokee Matralinial Systen that means that Charles Hughes was the Maternal half-brother of James Vann's mother and aunt Sallie Waters.] More About SARAH HUGHES: Blood: 1/2 Cherokee Clan: Ani'-Ga'tâge'wi = Kituah or Wild Potato (Wa-Wli Vann) Moravian Journals: August 20, 1806, aunt of George Vann Notes for THOMAS WATERS, COL: Thomas was a well known Tory and commander of Loyalist Rangers garrisoned at Ft Ninty Six, SC during the American Revolution.He later went into exile in the Bahamas and died in England during the War of 1812.The Georgia legislature permitted his Indian wife and children to maintain his extensive lands in Georgia.

66.JOHN CHEROKEE5 VANN III (SISTEROF4RAVEN, A-NU-WE-GI3MOYTOY, MOYTOY2, A-MA-DO-YA1) was born Abt. 1746 in Eastern Tennessee, and died Abt. 1805.He married (1) AGNES WEATHERFORD Bef. 1763.She was born Abt. 1746.He married (2) CHEROKEE WOMAN Abt. 1766.She was born Abt. 1748.He married (3) POLLY TERRAPIN Bef. 1793, daughter of THE TERRAPIN and OLD JENNIE.She was born Abt. 1768, and died Abt. 1833. Notes for JOHN CHEROKEE VANN III: Moravian Journals, 12/20/1806; refers to Polly Terrapin's husband as having died of Small Pox at Hightower.Presumably, this was John "Cherokee" Vann.His father, John "Trader" Vann, was also a "linguister" (or interpreter). To confuse the issue more...In 1770 Alexander Cameron appointed John Vann (apparently a white trader) as official interpreter, replacing another white trader, John Watts (deceased).In 1775 another interpreter, Joseph Vann, was involved with the Henderson land sale at Sychamore Shoals acting contrary to the orders of his employer, Alexander Cameron.In 1779 Robert Due (another white trader) wrote to Cameron that a number of white men, including John Vann and Joseph Vann, had joined war parties. Therefore; there are probably two seperate Vann mixed-blood families descending from their white projenitors, John and Joseph Vann, and their Cherokee wives.

Notes for WA-LI VANN: In 1819 Wa-wli was baptised by the Moravians and her Cherokee name changed to Mary Christianna.

In addition, the Moravian Journals consistently referred to James Vann and his mother and her husband, Clement, but they never referred to Clement as James Vann's father. (notes somewhere in a box in my closet;) James' sister, Nancy, once mentioned that her father was Joseph Vann. The date of entry into the Cherokee Nation of Clement, and Nancy's reference to Joseph as her father indicate that Joseph Vann and Clement Vann are two seperate individuals.
