Additionally, there may be some evidence she died about age 41 from the Cherokees? If some of the speculation about her being Cherokee is true, they may have married in the Cherokee nation earlier. * * Relationship Events * Marriage * 1660? _Nansemond, Virginia, United States_ (http://places.ancestry.com/index.aspx?tid=15781459&pid=316419662&eid=8998641402) * Children * _Robert Lassiter_ (http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/15781459/family/familygroup?fpid=318333688) (javascript:;) Son * 1664 _Nansemond, Virginia, United States_ (http://places.ancestry.com/index.aspx?tid=15781459&pid=318333688&eid=8998641407) * 2 Feb 1764 _Albemarle, Stanly, North Carolina, United States_ (http://places.ancestry.com/index.aspx?tid=15781459&pid=318333688&eid=8998641408) * * _John Lassiter_ (http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/15781459/family/familygroup?fpid=316405329) (javascript:;) Son * 1669 _New Kent, Nansemond, Virginia, USA_ (http://places.ancestry.com/index.aspx?tid=15781459&pid=316405329&eid=8990154731) * 15 Jul 1759 _, Chowan, North Carolina, USA_ (http://places.ancestry.com/index.aspx?tid=15781459&pid=316405329&eid=8990154730) * * _Thomas Lassiter_ (http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/15781459/family/familygroup?fpid=316697673) (javascript:;) Son * 2 Jun 1670 _, Nansemond, Virginia, USA_ (http://places.ancestry.com/index.aspx?tid=15781459&pid=316697673&eid=8991465778) * Feb 1746 _, Edgecombe, North Carolina, USA_ (http://places.ancestry.com/index.aspx?tid=15781459&pid=316697673&eid=8991465777) Wondering why I list Prudence's last name as Nee? Well the below post is why. Take it or leave it. I will try to reach Tamara Wheeler at the Salt Lake City Gen. Lib. for more information, as she says below that she has, on Robert Lassiter and any further information on Prudance's mother and/or father. Re: Prudance Nee and Robert LasaterPosted by: Tamara Wheeler (ID *****2557)Date: October 13, 2005 at 15:35:24In Reply to: Prudance Nee and Robert Lasater by Larry Stevens of 256 Hi Larry. I'm here at the Salt Lake City Genealogical Library, and the following is for you: Prudance Nee was born about 1637 in Virginia. She married Robert Lassiter, b. abt. 1635, Nansemond, Virginia, (spelling is correct from a public record of the time that listed him as a child in England) in about 1655 in Virginia. Further information on him is available, but I wasn't sure that was what you were after. They had one son, Thomas Lassiter, b. June/02/1670, Nansemond, Virginia; d. February/15/1745, Edgecombe, North Carolina. There is only a notation that Prudance's father was called "Nee", which can be a full name for any American Indian of that period. Her mother is not listed but I am looking for her diligently, and because the Cherokee are a matriarchal society, I am hopeful that some record of her may be found somewhere. It is very hard to find records back this far in the Americas, but sometimes you get lucky! Happy hunting for further information, and hopefully you'll share anything you find with me. As a matter of interest for you: Nansemond, VA was in the middle of the "Indian" territory of that time, and was considered "Indian" land. It is more than possible that Robert came from England, married Prudance, and was invited to remain on the land for as long as he chose. The Cherokee were considered "civilized" by the whites of the area, and he would not have had any reason to move away from his wife's home. It seems he might have died there, but his death and burial information is not listed and cannot be considered true until it has been verified. Prudance has no death or burial information listed at this time, either. I will continue looking.
