Pocahontas
b. c.1595; present day Virginia
d. 3-21-1618; England

Pocahontas, the childhood nickname of Matoaka, a daughter of Wahunsonacock, the “Powhatan” or leader of a Native American confederation in the tidewater area of present day Virginia, figures prominently in the history of the early British settlements of North America. She was reported by Captain John Smith, leader of the Jamestown Settlement, to have saved his life.

In 1614 she and farmer John Rolfe were married and she became known to the English as Lady Rebecca Rolfe. The birth of their son Thomas made the Rolfe family one of the First Families of Virginia (decendents of English settlers). Rebecca Rolfe died just prior to their return to Virginia from a visit to London, likely causes could have been pneumonia, tuberculosis or smallpox.
