A Folsom / Pitchlynn Family Tree

John Pitchlynn and Nathaniel Folsom were early immigrants to Creek Country, where they traded, married into prominent Creek families, and raised their children to be leaders of Creek society. Their own activities and those of relatives such as Samuel Mitchell extended their influence among Chickasaw people, as well. Many Pitchlynn and Folsom children signed treaties as Indigenous representatives, and some of these children – particularly Peter Pitchlynn – made personal fortunes at the cultural faultline of US-Indian affairs.
