gan to clear and civilize this part of
Georgia, there livid here a noble race

the Monroe and Jefferson road to at
one time liocky Ford a half mile north
of Tyro school, thence westerly to Ce
dar Crook church on Hog Mountain
road, thence along said road to the be
ginning. The consideration was a
string of beads, therefore, it is called
by some headland.
In the year 171)3, Alonio Draper,
Herman Scupen and Homer Jackson
moved from Tallassee to Snodon (Win
der). These people found only one fam
ily living in this deserted town, his
name being Modin and Ills wife Nyru
lyn. This couple had two daughters,
Morn, nicknamed Bluebird, and Nera
Nara. Tills girl was admired by an
Indian, Watleskew by name, and he
talked love while she would not. He
killed her on the flat rock near the
present school building in Winder.
Watleskew was caught at Thoinoco
giu (Jefferson), slain and brought back
to Node roc and thrown in the mud vol
cano. Nera was buried near the old
cemetery at the school building.

two boys as well as two girls, the boys
were Notha Neva and Adra Alter. This

Smith's) by Tata Nyxter, an Indian lad
from ambush. Yrtyrmyrisoo was a
leader of the Bohuron tribe.
Lapsidali, an Indian squaw lived
with her brother, Omonaco on the Tar
exulaboule (Beech Creek). They were
basket makers and built them a hut of
bark twigs and mud near the creek
where they could more easily get ma
terial for their baskets.

the Indians for lands which now form
a part of Georgia we find from the Tal
lassee section these names:
Inomatuhata —Fat King.
Inomatawtusinga—Top War King.

Other names are as follows: Hopothe,
Opey Mieo, Totkeshaujon, Opototaclie,
