About Chief John Black Wiley

from Will the Real Jenny Wiley Please Tell Her Story! Mystery Mondays. Posted February 17, 2014

The story of Jenny Sellards Wiley is one of great Appalachian lore. She was a pioneer woman who with her husband Thomas Wiley resided in Bland County, Virginia, was taken captive by American Indians in 1789 and taken to Kentucky. According to the story, several of her children and her brother were killed at the time. She then lost 2 more children while in captivity before she could escape. ....

.... There are even those that believe that Jenny Wiley had a Native American child by Black Wolf, when she returned from captivity. Check out this website:Cornstalk Family History  (comment: dead link, May 2015). This part of the story in the day of DNA testing would not be hard to prove or disprove. I would love for the descendants of Jenny Wiley and the people on this website to get their DNA tested for their common ancestor.
