    Service Description:


  7. THOMAS PASMERE was well educated, but did not want to participate in the family business for other brothers and sisters were heavily involved. When but twenty years old, THOMAS departed Plymouth England bound for the lands across the sea, arriving in Jamestown Virginia late 1627. Because of his age, THOMAS could not apply for a land grant. THOMAS found a small, unoccupied cave a short distance from Jamestown. He brought many supplies with him unknowing the future, and what it would bring. He managed to live throughout the winter in the relative comfort afforded inside the naturally insulated home. By trial and error he learned many different trapping methods that first winter, and managed to process a moderate number of valuable furs. By 1630 THOMAS had taken to wife, PRIDE, a Shawnee woman about eight years younger. To their union two children were born that survived, a son named TRADER, and a daughter named PASMERE

  8. Note: English name was Trader Carpenter.

    Amatoya Moytoy of Chota (pronounced mah-tie) was a Cherokee town chief of the early eighteenth century in the area of present-day Tennessee. He held a prominent position among the Cherokee, and held the hereditary title Ama Matai (From the French matai and Cherokee ama--water), which meant "Water Conjurer."

    Amatoya was taught by his father to “witch” for water with a willow stick. He had become so adept at water witching that the Cherokee called him "water conjurer" or Ama Matai (Ama is Cherokee for water). Ama Matai eventually became pronounced as Amatoya. It was later shortened to “Moytoy”, so he is known as Moytoy I. He ruled the town of Chota sometime between the beginning of the eighteenth century and 1730.

    In 1680, Amatoya married Quatsie of Tellico. Many of their descendants went on to become prominent leaders, founding a family that effectively ruled the Cherokee for a century.

  9. tells the indian story in regards to the painting "trustees in georgia"

    this along with and many other pages regarding indian heritage to the mcdaniels hooper, pasmeres is confusing! many people it seems have the names spelled wrong and mixed together as duplicates. i dont know if i have an 8 great grand uncle or 8th great grand father. lol. but does seem to connect through the lines somehow to the clan there.

  14. Hello!

    I have been enjoying reading your blog.

    We appear to share two common ancestors: Thomas Pasmere Carpenter (1607-1675) and his wife, Elizabeth Pride Chalakahatha Shawnee (1615-1679).

    I am descended through his son, Trader Carpenter, aka Chief Amotoya (1640-1730). I'm not sure if the names are completely accurate.

    Thanks so much for the Carpenter ancestry going back to Thomas' ancestors in England. I sure appreciate all the work you have done!!

    So I think that we are distant cousins!!

    Take care, cuz!

    1. Hi! I am also a descendant of William David McDaniel and Sookie Hopper Moytoy. My line comes from their daughter Catherine (Katie) McDaniel who married John Jack Ward. Their daughter Susie Ward married William England. Their son Joseph married Sabra Cooper (which is another line of natives). Their daughter Louisa England married married David Suagee ( yet another line of natives). Their daughter Nellie Suagee married Claud Harner. And their daughter Buelah is my great-granny. :-)
