Family Data

A-MA-DO-YA MOYTOY was born Abt. 1640 in Chota. He married QUE-DI-SI. She was born Abt. 1650 in Tellico.S1

There has been a lot of confusion about the descendants of Moytoy. I think this is because some people are not aware that there were two Chief Moytoys. The first was Chief Amatoya Moytoy of Chota, b abt 1640, who married Quatsy of Tellico (of the Wolf Clan). The second is Chief Moytoy, aka the Pigeon of Tellico, b abt 1687. The second Moytoy is believed to be either the son or grandson of Amatoya Moytoy.S1

It is believed that Amatoya Moytoy had 3 sons and 8 daughters. These include Chief Kanagatoga "Old Hop", Nancy Moytoy, and two daughters with unknown names. Nancy Moytoy is believed to have been the mother of Chief Attakullakulla "Little Carpenter", Killaneca the Buck, Betsy and Tame Doe. Tame Doe was the mother of Tsistuna-Gis-Ke (Nancy Ward), and Longfellow of Chistatoa.S1
