. Migration to 13 leagues north of New Orleans (Pearl River, MS) Access Genealogy and have reverse migrations with Spain is where D'Iberville first noted this group. Acolapissa were very involved with the Keskiak Powhatan, therefore, the Choctaw called them Baby Powhatan Chiefs or Acolapissa. They showed up in a large group Mandeville. LA in the 1722 era, heavily tattooed, states the public sign in Mandeville put their by their historic society. Their influence on the Choctaw language has been the study of the Tulane University book from which comes the avatar. Their association with the Fur Traders and fleets there of in the Tidewaters of the Chesapeake replaced their connection with New Spain, until they exited Virginia Colony for New Spain, for good. Some took on the name King and were "laying waste" some land in Bertie County owned by Henry King and the next thing is they arrived in 1721, into Mandeville, LA and then moved west and then spread out and married into incoming groups (mostly Nottoway via Fishing Creek and Little PeeDee groups).

Acolapissa was a linguistic group who were Kekiak from the Powhatan Confederacy and impacted by the after effects of Bacon's Rebellion. (Choctaw Genesis, a book by University of Nebraska publication) - Nebraska Press and also excerpts from linquistic books from Tulane University on the subject.) The area above Lake Ponchartrain was the ancestral home of the Acopolissa Choctaw, a linguistic dialect group affected by Powhatan language influences. Tulane University's linguistic section in their book on area language studies states that Acolapissa meant: "baby chiefs of Powhatan" denoting the influence of incomers into this area affecting the Choctaw language of the area. The impact was on the Bogue Chitto clan, the Pearl River Clan who later went to the Bayou La Combe area and are still there but sold to Jarrell after Chief Hobolochitto died and went to Bogue Chitto and then to Bayou Lacombe and on Houma. The road sign in Mandeville, LA mentions their transfer to the "west" meaning, not very far west, to get away from slave traders. The coastal families, some who are members of the MS Band of Choctaw but still reside in "Grandma Country" are some who trace back to sir names such as: Farve, Atwood, Ladner, Redman, Redmond, Ainsworth, Jackson (Red Bird), Gill, Smith, Carriere, Nicholson, etc. A continuous community ended up at Restertown Rd, outside of Poplarville, MS and the connections with their Old Cheraw cousins are still kept.
We call for Houma profiles and also north Ponchartrain profiles who were known native in the area where this language had been spoken. Called "Northshore" today up to "Restertown". We attached projects that are associated to this group which their incoming bounty reservations are noted in the map in the media section as impacting the Choctaw dialect in the same area. Also, the Choctaw Society Glovers and the Lott Fayard Indian School Old Cheraw and Edisto or Jewish Choctaw Community coming from SC family groups, in concert with each other, mixed with the Bogue Chitto Clan locals and the Pearl River Clan and Yowani Choctaw. Some of the Lott Fayard Indian School were of this community with the Canzada family and the Fayard at the Biloxi location and the Farve and Ladner and Carver in the Logtown/Gainesville location where there is the historic graveyard on the property of NASA purhased by Lady Bird Johnson and donated to NASA. The St. Helena graveyard on the north side of NASA is another of the early families graveyards. Their mound works going back beyond them are on private land at the east side of intersection on the south exit of Poplarville.
