Descendants, Antecedents, and Relations of John Blackman Sr (ca 1670 - 1736) who married in to the Chowanoke Bennett family. Our Blackman (alternate Blackmon) family early in the 18th century resided on Potecasi Creek in Chowan Precinct and later Bertie Precinct at Ahotsky on the Roanoke / Morattock River. Ahotsky is believed to have derived from the Skarure (Tuscarora) word Rahsuta'?kye (Rah-soot-ock-yeh) or Ressootska which means "Our Ancestors", meaning "this is the place where our ancestors lived". Ressootska was the name of King Blount's Tuscarora town in the 1700s. After 1733 some of the Chowanoke and Saponi joined the Tuscarora there.
