my 8th Great Grandfather on my Dad's Mothers' side was the interpreter for Queen Cockacoeske of the Pamunkey Indians from Virginia, she was the daughter of Chief Opechancanough whom was the brother of Chief Powhata

Notes for SUSANNAH: Cornelius I was interpreter of Cocacoeske, Queen of the Pamunkey Indians.His second wife, Susannah is believed to be the daughter or granddaughter of Cockacoeske and her husband, Chief Totopotomoi.

If the Dabneys descend from Totopotomoi and Cocacoeske, th y not only have a double descent from Pocahonta's father's sisters, but also descent from his brother Opechancanough , who married Powhatan's daughter, Cleopatra, the wife of O pechancanough.
