About Jemima Sally Pitchlynn
I have see her listed as Native American online but this is NOT the case. Her son John Pitchlynn is clearly stated to be white, he was not part Native American.
Could she be sister or cousin to William Hickman whose daughter Sarah "Sally" Hickman married Hezekiah Lincecum? Hezekiah reported that John Pitchlynn once told him he was second cousin to Hezekiah's mother.
Quote from the book "Adventures of a frontier Natualist.":
As soon as I got my house done, I went over the river to see the Choctaw Indians. They were not exceeding two miles distant. I found there a white man by the name of John Pitchlynn. Sixty-two years of age, he had a large family of half breed children, was very wealthy, possessed a high order of intelligence and was in every point of view a clever gentleman. He was very glad to hear that we were settling near him and said he would visit the place we had selected, to see if it was above high-water mark. He asked my name, and when I told him, inquired for the name of my father. I replied, It is Hezekiah Lincecum. Don't they call him Ky? said he. His familiar friends do, said I. Well said he, I am second cousin to your mother. I will go right over and see them this day. He was in a perfect ecstacy.
