Not clear which wife of Black Raccoon is the mother of which children. We assume each one's mother is either Sacachequah or Sacaquatah/Catherine Coleman.

    Francis Godfroy had two wives: Sacachequah, a Pottawatomii and
    Sacaquatah (Catherine Coleman) I whose father was a white captive
    and mother was a Miami daughter of Osandiah. These two unions
    produced 12 children altogether. Members of his large family and
    other remnants of Osandiah's village inhabited tracts of reserve
    land surrounding his trading house near Peru. The landless Eel
    River Miamis also settled on this land in the 1830's.
    When Francis Godfroy died in 1840, leadership of the band passed
    to his son-in-law, Black Raccoon (Wappapinsha), also known as
    George Hunt. Before removal, Black Raccoon had been leader of a
    village "just south of Wabash" (Butler 1901:228); he married
    Francis' daughter Frances in about 1830. He delivered the eulogy
    for Francis Godfroy's funeral (Lamb and Schultz 1964:102).
    Pimyotomah, the brother of Francis' second wife and a grandson of
    Osandiah, was also a leader of the band following Francis' death.
    When Black Raccoon died in 1860, Gabriel Godfroy (son of Francis)
    succeeded him as leader of the group , although Pimyotomah
    continued to exercise considerable influence until his death in
    1889.
