Delaware Indian Tribes

Delaware Indians. The Unalachtigo division of the Delaware occupied all of the northern parts of this State when it was first visited by Europeans. (See New Jersey Indian Tribes.)

Nanticoke Indians. Bodies of Indians classed, under this general head extended into the southern and western sections. Unalachtigo and Nanticoke are two forms of the same word though, as differentiated, they have been applied to distinct tribes. (See Maryland Indian Tribes.)

    I am just getting so doggone confused with this genealogy stuff. My 8th great grandmother’s name was “Margaret”.1701-1796. Or at least what they called her. She was married to Rev Johannes Preisz (Price). 1702-1724. They had three sons. I have a few “suggestions” to her parentage, but would like very much to be able to find her in records. Or at least make contact with others that have the same information.
    Thank you,
