The Shawnee Bluejacket Family

Shawnee Bluejacket Family

The Shawnee Bluejacket family reaches back into the mid-1700s. Records begin with Chief Bluejacket himself, also known by his Native names of Se-pet-te-he-nath, Big Rabbit, his name given at birth…

Blue Jacket

Blue Jacket or Weyapiersenwah (c. 1743 – 1810) was a war chief of the Shawnee people, known for his militant defense of Shawnee lands in the Ohio Country. Perhaps the pre-eminent American Indian leader in the Northwest Indian War, in which a pantribal confederacy fought several battles with the nascent United States, he was an important predecessor of the famous Shawnee leader Tecumseh.

Lecture on Blue Jacket (Karen Pfister's AOL Native American chat)

I am going to try and give you as much information tonight as I can on
BLUEJACKET . I am happy that you could make it tonight . This is going
to be the first of a month long lectures on Our Great Men .
BLUEJACKET , the Shawnee name appeared more than once in the Shawnee
Nation . MARMADUKE VAN SWEARINGEN, most think was not the orginal
BLUEJACKET.
The name started out as two words and evloved into a surname after
MARMADUKE was captured by the SHAWNEE NATION . Historians have noted
that Bluejacket was a white captive and recived wide acceptance since
the publication of ALLEN W. ECKERTS book "THE FRONTIERSMAN" .
Bluejacket's life is based on family stories and traditions from Kansas
in 1877 .
Bluejacket was the recongnized chief of the Mequachake division of the
Shawnee in 1772 , while Marmaduke was but a youth at the time of his
capture in 1778.
A Shawnee named Blue Jacket is listed among John Owens early accounts of
our history . As early as 1756 Bluejacket's name appearing along with
Ben Dickerson, and cousin Blue Shadow . Whom was also called the Earl Of
Hell . Along with the Rev David Jones who visited Blue Jackets town in
1772 .
When Marmaduke VanSwearingen was captured during the 1770's , he was
adopted and given the name of Blue Jacket . Perhaps he was to replace
the original Blue Jacket . But Blue Jacket's family may have given him
the same name , which was done at that time .
Blue Jacket was the second in command with Little Turttle ( when reading
about Little Turttle I find mentions of Bluejacket also ) ,during the
red victories at Harmar 's Defeat and St. Clairs defeat . You can find
writtings of them both in many of the books written about the fall of
Fallen Timbers . Ky.
Blue Jackets first wife was Clearwater , daughter of Deperon Baby and
his Shawnee wife . His children included JAMES BLUEJACKET b around
1790. BlueJacket had a second wife . Her name was PEGGY MOORE , a white
daughter of James Moore who was adopted by the Shawnee. Their children
were JOSEPH who became the sub-chief under Tecumseh in the war of 1812
.Mary Jane Bluejacket , who married a French-Canadian Trader named
Lacelle and later lived in Detroit . James Bluejacket whom was the
father of Rev. Charles BlueJacket , and Nancy Bluejacket who married
James Stewart and had four children whom amoung them was Joseph Stewart
. Listed in the tracts of land in Ohio by the 1817 Treaty of the Miami
of Lake Erie was Thucuscu or Jim Bluejacket . I am not sure if this is
one of Van's children .
The Shawnee whom were on the muster roll of the Ohio Hog Creek and
Wapakonetta bands shows Henry BlueJacket family of seven and James
Bluejacket family of four . The Shawnees who fought the Seminoles in
Florida were Henry, George and Jim Bluejacket .
Charles Bluejacket was the son of James Bluejacket born on the Huron
River in Michigan 1816. He attended a mission school near Fort Meigs .
James Bluejacket married a Wyandot and lived with her people . The 1843
Roll of the Wyandots from Sandusky shows his family consisting of 3
children. Rev. Charles Bluejacket married Pa-we-see in 1833 , amoung
their children was Robert born in 1840 , he was shot to death by
Villiam Fish in 1858 in Johnson County , Kansas .
Charles married again in 1843 to Julie Ann Daugherty member of the
Louis P Daugherty family . From this marriage came Sally 1844 m
Jonathan Gore, David , b 1846, Price b 1854, Willis b 1860, Julia Ann b
1863 and Richard b 1866 .
There is much written on the family of Charles Bluejacket which can be
retrived from RICHARD PANGBURNS book INDIAN BY BLOOD VOL1.
Among the Shawnee who settled on the lands of the Cherokee Nation by
1869 was , Charles, Louisa , Price, Willis, Silas, Henry , Richard M ,
David, Eliza , Rosella, Katherine, Sally Martin , Joseph , Emma ,
Sally,(F.E.Bailey's divorced widow ) . All family members are listed in
JAIFR , vol lV, #2, pp 100-111 . Twenty -four members of the Bluejacket
family are listed among the Shawnee on the 1880 Cherrokee Nation Census
. . ..
And last but not forgoten is Dennis W. Bluejacket , he was among the
Shawnee who fought for America during WWII . He was killed in Europe.
I hope this lightens your search for BlueJackets family . The following
books may help .

Bluejacket Reunion with a Tomahawk | Native Heritage Project

I want to thank Carlyle Henshaw for this wonderful article. When I asked him for permission to publish, here’s what Carlyle had to say.

“I really had fun researching that article. The three Bluejacket brothers that establish Bluejacket Crossing were George, Henry and Charles. Henry was my great great grandfather. The three brothers were grandsons of Shawnee Chief Blue Jacket, 1737-1808. He was the last principal war chief of the Shawnee Tribe of Indians. We have 15 members in our PekowiBlueJacket Project. All trace to Blue Jacket genealogically. We all descend from the three brothers via DNA. Nine of us have Family Finder. Four males have fathers who are named Bluejacket and all match each other. One is haplogroup Q and three are Q1a3a1. All in all, everyone matches up in the Blue Jacket line, genetically and genealogically. We have sixth, seventh and eighth generations from Blue Jacket represented.”
