There were several Native American groups living in the area that came to be known as Virginia, when the first white settlers arrived. * The Powhatan, members of the Algonquian group, lived along the coast. * The Monacan and the Manahoac lived in the area known as the Piedmont. * Nahyssan who lived along the James River. * The Occaneechi lived along the Roanoke River. * Susquehanna lived in the upper Chesapeake Bay area. * The Cherokee lived in the southwestern part of Virginia. * The Nottoway in the southeastern section of Virginia.

The Cherokee, Chickasaw, Shawnee, and Yuchi Indian tribes all predated the first European settlers. The Shawnee tribe occupied 75 percent of the land in Kentucky.

There is no specific terminology for an Indian word for scout. Indians that helped early settlers find their way around this new country were often called Indian Scouts, as they would scout out an area before bringing in the new settlers.

No, the settlers bought pigs over with them. No animals with hooves were in Australia before the English settlers.

The name given to Settlers who occupied Unassigned Lands before the land was proclaimed to be open. The name came from the 'sooner clause' of the Act which stated that anyone who entered and occupied land prior to the openoing time would be denied that land

The Oregon Country was a predominantly American term referring to a disputed ownership region of the Pacific Northwest of North America. The region was occupied by British and French Canadian fur traders from before 1810, and American settlers from the mid-1830s. The Native population eventually shared the same marginalized fate as the rest of the Indian tribes.

Before Virginia was a colony, settlers came over to a town called Jamestown in search of gold. It was in a low lying swamp between two rivers and the conditions were awful. Food wasn't a priority to the settlers, and many died from malaria. John Smith came in to make rules so the settlers could survive and actually make a profit for England.

The Seminole tribes (an offshoot of the Creeks) occupied a large area of Florida before they battled Andrew Jackson in the First Seminole War (1816-1819). They were part of the "Trail of Tears" that resulted from the Indian Removal Act of 1830.

The Powhatan Confederacy had an extensive trade network with other Indian tribes before Jamestown was settled. When the Jamestown settlers arrived, they traded with the colonists. The settlers traded their metal tools for food and furs.

Werowocomoco was the headquarters of the leader, Powhatan. It was used by Indians for several hundred years before English Settlers came.

Not really because it was and remained an occupied piece of real estate of both belligerents from a period well before Virginia seceded from the Union and before the western counties of western Virginia sceded from the Confederate State of Virginia. Kentucky was poised to become a battleground as a border state desireable if not essential to the defense and as a staging area for attacks either North or South.

The Romans never lived in Manchester, although they lived where Manchester now is. The Celts, who were wide rangingsettlers,like the later Roman settlers, occupied the area, displacing those ancient Britons who previously lived there. "Ancient Britons" covers unknown settlers of unknown origin.

First found in Northumberland where they were seated from very ancient times along the banks of the River Tyne. Some of the first settlers of this family name or some of its variants were: Robert Tyndall who was perhaps one of the first recorded settlers in the U.S. He settled in Virginia in 1606; 14 years before the "Mayflower." The widow Tindall settled in Virginia in 1623.

Yosemite got its name from the Indian tribe that had resided in the valley before they were driven out by settlers. The naming of the valley was done by L. H. Bunnell in the mid-1800s.
