  • Captain William McIntosh (1745-?)
    Parents: John McIntosh and Margaret McGillivary.
    Born: Circa 1745.
    Died: Probably in Savannah where he went after leaving his
    Indian families, and where he lived in the brick house
    previously built by his father.
    Native American: none.
    Wives: Senoya, 2nd Unknown, and 3rd Barbara McIntosh.
    Children: Margaret and William.
    He Married 1st an Indian maiden, she was of the Wind Clan. His
    first wife, of the Coweta Villages and also of Cusseta, is said
    to have been named Senoya. There is a village today named Senoya
    and claims to have been named after her. Captain William met his
    first bride at the trading post operated by his father on the
    Tombigsbee River north of what is presently Mobile, Alabama.
    Captain William lived as an Indian in manner and engaged in
    trapping and trading among his wife's people, the Southern or
    "Friendly" Creeks. Their son, later the Chief, was called
    William, Jr.
    Married 2nd another Indian maiden, name unknown to us. She was
    of the Wind Clan also.
    His second Indian wife, no doubt of the same tribe, was to be
    the mother of Roderick or "Roley" as he was called. His first
    two wives were of influential families as is shown by the
    prominence of both. There is no "D" in the Creek language, so
    the Indians were unable to pronounce the name Roderick, and
    called him "Roley."
    Married 3rd to his cousin Barbara McIntosh in Savannah and by
    the 3rd wife he had a son named William, but not William, Jr.,
    since his first born in the west was "Junior".

    Capt. William McIntosh, son of Lt. John McIntosh and Margaret
    McGillivray, was born in 1745 in Newnan, Georgia. His father
    left that part of Georgia and went to what is now western
    Alabama some time after William's birth. No doubt, William spent
    most of his childhood at McIntosh Bluff, Alabama (of course, it
    was then Georgia). While living at McIntosh Bluff, he met an
    Indian girl named Senoya Heneha, a full-blood Creek Indian. She
    had come to the trading post of William's father, John McIntosh,
    with her father, a Chief of the Wind Clan. We do not know her
    father's name, but we do know she had three brothers, Chief
    "Tuskehenehaw, Chief Tomoc Mico, and Col. Howard. After marrying
    Senoya, Capt. McIntosh lived among her people, the Creek
    Indians, at Coweta, Georgia, close to present-day Columbus,
    Georgia. Later, Capt. McIntosh married another Indian woman and
    became the father of Roderick (Old Roley, he was called). Roley
    later was chief of the Creeks after their removal to Oklahoma.

    Capt. McIntosh became a Tory captain in the British Service
    during the Revolutionary War. He was probably in command of a
    contingent of Creek Indian allies of the British as the Indians
    were supportive of the British in the War.

    Later, Capt. McIntosh abandoned his Indian wives and married his
    cousin, Barbara McIntosh, of Fair Hope Plantation. Fair Hope was
    just south of Mallow Plantation, Pine Harbor, Georgia, where
    Capt. Roderick McIntosh, a brother of John McIntosh, and his
    spinster sister, Miss Winnewood McIntosh, lived. Roderick died
    on shipboard at Gravesen in 1782 on his arrival in England. His
    nephew, Capt. William, went to England to place his claim and
    received title to Mallow. He returned from England and married
    Barbara, the daughter of Col. William McIntosh, of Fair Hope.

    Miss Winnewood McIntosh died in 1786 and is buried under the
    Great Oak at Mallow. The Georgia in testate records on page 210
    states, "McIntosh, Winnewood (deceased), George Troup, Sr.
    qualified as executor, 25 June 1786. William McIntosh of Mallow
    qualified as executor, 8 December 1791." Capt. McIntosh and his
    wife Barbara became the parents of a son whom they named
    William; however, he could not be William McIntosh Jr. as that
    name had been given to the son of Senoya. This son was quite
    active in Georgia politics and became a Georgia legislator.
    Friends and neighbors of the McIntosh's remembered his Indian
    son, William, Jr., who later became Chief William McIntosh and a
    general in the War of 1812, and his frequent visits to Mallow

    In April 1794, Capt. William McIntosh died and was buried under
    the Great Oak at Mallow rear the grave of his aunt Miss
    Winnewood. At Mallow Plantation, the house, which was
    beautifully located on a bluff overlooking the Sepalo River and
    marshes, was destroyed during the Civil War as it was shelled
    from a ship in the Sepal River. Copied from "The McIntosh
    Family" compiled by Yvonne Jones Franklin.
