My Native American ancestor stands out in early Florida census records due to her Spanish-derived name. Granddad didn’t claim a tribe, but my research shows why—the Spanish Injun tribes were wiped out. I use ‘Injun’ because Indians are from India.
The Seminoles wiped out the Spanish tribes of Florida with help from the American government which wanted control of the territory. Pandemics also brought death and suffering, but the Seminoles provided the final push for extinction.
If you lookup the Timucua and the Calusa tribe, you will find their designation as extinct. The other Spanish tribe, the Apalachee had a few who survived, but they no longer call Florida their home.
I can’t say for sure which tribe my ancestor belonged to, but her name and place of birth hint she came from the Timucua.
