    Family 2 Susannah Coe 
    Married
    • Some researchers claim that Jane's mother was Eliza Hawkins. This seems improbable if she married Sam Hawkins, who by some accounts would have been her uncle, or by others, her brother. Bonner asserts that Susannah (McIntosh's full-blood Creek wife) was her mother. [5]

      "The actual date of William McIntosh's birth is obscured by conflicting data, but hw was probably born in 1778. His birthplace was the Lower Creek town of Coweta, located on the right bank of the Chattahoochee , at the junction of Broken Arrow Creek, fifteen miles downriver from the present-day Columbus, Georgia, and three miles below the fall line in what is now Russell County, Alabama."
