Abstract:

The following information is condensed from the handbook of American Indians, Bureau of American Ethnology, Bulletin 30, (which see): Tomochichi (spelled also Tomochachi, Temochichi, Thamachaychee, etc.) was a Creek chief who established himself at the town of Yamacraw (present Savannah, Georgia) shortly after 1721. On the foundation of the Georgia colony by Oglethorpe in 1733, Tomochichi assumed a friendly attitude toward the newcomers and was instrumental in bringing about a treaty of alliance between that colony and the Lower Creeks in that year. In 1734, with his wife, nephew, and several others, he accompanied Oglethorpe to England, where his portrait was painted. He continued to be helpful to the colonists after his return, until his death, which occurred in his own town of Yamacraw, October 5, 1739, he being then perhaps 75 years of age. He was given a public funeral at Savannah.; Reproduced in Bureau of American Ethnology Bulletin 137, Plate 29.
