In Response To: Re: Rentie family, Creek Freedmen ()
Hi! Sho' am happy you are interested in our big Rentie Clan! Are you Family/Blood Related as well? Hope you continued on with your Historical Search on Rentiesville. Pickett Rentie's Son (of maybe four) William Rentie helped Co-Found Rentiesville. William "Bill" died there, as the town Sheriff, at the hands of a killer he had arrested earlier for possible drunkeness or disorderly conduct. His Father Pickett Rentie actually fought in The Civil War at Honey Springs. In my major Rentie Family Quest Search, I be looking for any possible photos or drawings of the first mentions of our Warrior Rentie (from the early 1800's). I want to do a nice color portrait illustration of the man. A lot of Folk within the powerful Rentie Clan have been named "Warrior" ever since, causing things to get confusing. My Rentie ancestral lineage link is long. I be the Son of Mazree Walker Porter who's Mom was Alice Rentie Walker who's Dad was Benjamin Franklin Rentie who's Dad was Island Rentie who's Daddy was Pickett Rentie.
