I may have entered a post on this before, but if I have, my memory desperately fails me....I'm looking for the connection between the Monteith and Mantooth families.
Thomas Monteith (1694-1747) and Phyllis Gallop Monteith (b. abt 1720) had at least four children, one being a son, John. According to family lore, John married a Cherokee bride against his family's wishes. This led to a disinheritance by the family, and John changed his surname to MANTOOTH. His son, Thomas (1760-1836) was known as "Cherokee Tom", married Elizabeth Pharriss. They lived in Cocke County, Tennessee, where many descendants still roam.
Please write with your thoughts. Reply to this post or e-mail directly to aeturnallrain67@hotmail.com.

Leigh Anne,
Your Elizabeth Monteith appears to have been the daughter of John Monteith, son of the immigrant, Thomas Monteith (1694-1747). As stated in my book, John Monteith traditionaly moved to NC. His Indian wife is not definitley known. Some say that she was a Cherokee and that is why his son was called Cherokee Tom. It is a lot more likely that John's wife was of Patawomeck Indian blood, which he also had. His brother, James Monteith, married his cousin, Leah Owens, of Patawomeck blood and I believe that John married on of the sisters of Leah Owens. The Monteiths were always closely associated with the Cox family in VA, and I imagine that their connection with them in NC was for the same reasons. I discussed in my book about the probability of Capt. Henry Fleet having a daughter by a Patawomeck Indian woman during his long stay with that tribe and that the daughter was a wife of the immigrant, Vincent Cox. Both Fleet and Cox became Indian interpreters. Vincent Cox kept a Nanzattico Indian boy, William King, with him for quite a while. The Nanzatticos were very closely associated with their neighbors, the Patawomecks, and certainly intermarried with them. Many believe that the Nanzatticos were simply an off-shoot of the Patawomeck Tribe. Note the given name of Fleet in your Cox family. It is also in my line and there is no other know connection to the Fleet family. Your George Cox had a brother, Presley Cox, who married Mary Fleet of Lancaster County, and I believe that their union was due to them being cousins, which caused the association between the Cox family of Westmoreland and the Fleets of Lancaster. My ancestor, James Monteith, had a daughter, Leah Owens Monteith, who married first to her cousin, Thomas Owens, and then to Charnock Cox, descended from Charnock Cox, brother to your George Cox.
I will send you an e-mail with my book information in case you would want to obtain one. The book has many color pictures of the portraits of the ancestors of the Monteiths. It contains a lot of information on various other area families connected to the Indians, including the Cox family. I also have a book on the history of the Patawomeck Tribe which has many photos in it, including one of an authentic copy of the silver badge/medallion of Chief Wahanganoche, who would have been your direct ancestor.
