"Indian Jane" Hubbard, Cherokee #52ancestors

This #52ancestors challenge post is about my 5th great grandmother "Indian Jane"...

--Records for Charles Rakes Sr. pulled from Patrick Co. Va.--

There is a lot of confusion between "Indian Jane", Jane Hubbard, Nancy Hubbard, Nancy Jane Hubbard, and Nancy Jane "Indian Jane" Hubbard as being of the same person.

Charles Rakes 2nd wife: "Nancy Hubbard", which "no records" of any children. He married her at age 76, which not impossible, doubtful of any children.

Her parents were Joseph Hubbard and Ann Crews.
Ann Crews parents were Hardy Crews and Phoebe Doochie/Goochie.
Many publications for Hardy and phoebe, Hardy from Ireland was a land surveyor.
As a record account goes: he chose a beautiful dark-haired Cherokee maiden, named Phoebe Doochie/Goochie.
Phoebe is full blooded Cherokee Indian, of what is now the Smoky mountains area and Cherokee Indian reservation.(This was prior to the building of the fort(Prior to dawes roles)). Early to mid 1700's.

Reports indicate: Cherokee recognize Hardy/Phoebe of pure blood of having both land and rights. Joseph who married their daughter Ann Crews, she would be 1/2 blood Cherokee, which was entitled to NO land, but given all other Cherokee rights.

Joseph was well known by the Cherokee as "good friend", often stopped by on their way to trading.

Charles Rakes Sr 1st wife: Indian Jane has "NO" last name, but had 12 children 11 female 1 male. Records indicate born abt 1740.
Anna,Constant,Jane,Mary Bashie,Sarah,Rhoda,Dorcas,Elizabeth, 3 unknown females,and Samuel Jackson Rakes b.1790. All from Patrick Co. Va.

This is the direct line of Rakes that goes into Winfrey. Charles Rakes Sr daughter:Dorcos Rakes married: Richard R.Winfrey.

As per stories, and publications: Indian Jane's full blooded Cherokee parents were killed during a raid,(sometime after the fort was built and before the trail of tears.)

This left her an orphan baby, which was raised by Joseph Hubbard, he named Jane "Indian Jane" (No records, many different publications).
"This would be the early 1740's which records would be very hard to find if even recorded."

++This is probably where the confusion is about calling her Jane Hubbard....

The marriage to Charles Rakes Sr is also not recorded. All Rakes from Charles Rakes Sr. 1740 to 2012, are directly from "Indian Jane" Which for legal purposes on a marriage certificate would be Jane Hubbard, if the record even exists.

Indian Jane being of full blooded Cherokee Indian.
(Would like to find records of blood parents.)
