About Jennie Doublehead Foreman

Jennie Foster [1777 – 1812] is mentioned in Rickey Butch Walker's book "Doublehead: Last Chickamauga Cherokee Chief" (Killen, Alabama: Bluewater Publications, 2012). He says that she was the child of John Foster and Two Heads Doublehead, the daughter of old Chief Doublehead. Per this source, Jennie Foster first married James Clement (Wa-Wli) Vann [Feb 1765 – Feb 21, 1809] and then John Anthony Foreman [1780 – 1807].

Jennie (Foster) & John Foreman (c. 1780 & d.1807 were the )parents of Elizabeth Foster Foreman. Elizabeth married John Jack Elliott, Sr. who is notable for being assassinated near Saline Creek, Ind. Territory, by political allies of Cherokee Chief John Ross who was opposed by many Cherokees before and during the 1840's. She and John Elliott were parents of 11 children.

Find A Grave Memorial # 63319990. This memorial has some information which conflicts with what is already listed, and I don't have answers as to what is correct.

Burial location unknown.



Some history sites say Doublehead was murdered for killing the baby in his wife's womb and then commenced beating her to death. (That's where he got the name "baby-killer".) Doubleheads wife, unknown Cherokee woman (B), was probably a half-sister to James Clement Vann's favorite wife, Jennie Doublehead Foster, who herself was a granddaughter of Doublehead. Other researchers say that Vann's wife Jennie was Jennie Harrison. Either way the unknown (B) wife of Doublehead would be the sister or half sister of Jennie Foster/Harrison, Vann's favorite wife.
