Well, this is a late posting to this message BUT my family is claiming Cheif Oceola as a great great great grandfather. Stories from my childhood of a renegade indian cheif who had intercourse with black slaves. My aunt was named Oceola, and she looks like an american indian as do some of her siblings. Somehow in some of the music I write, there is a tribal indian feel. Just comes out that way. Check out http://www.audiosparx.com/sa/artist/sounds.cfm/artist_iid.2228 in particular: Leycrehendai.
I think the connection comes from my grandfather's side of the family. His name Aaron Brown.
