Jane Poythress died c. 1676 in Charles City, Virginia.
"Thomas Eldredge married a daughter of
Colonel John or Robert Bolling of Virginia. Robert Bolling's wife was a daughter of Thomas Rolfe and Potthress (Indian) and granddaughter of Pocahontas, who died at Gravesend, England."
Here is how cited books and chart read: Thomas Eldrige married the daughter of Col John Bolling son of Col Robert Bolling. Col Robert Bolling married the grandaughter of Pocahontas who died at Gravesend, England. John Rolfe and Pocahontas had one son Thomas who married Jane Poythress.
On a person note and as cited sources read Jane may have been Indian but more than likely English as Poythress name is promient in Engliah History.
