page 83, 85, 86 Sam Manack's House on Pinchona, Montgomery County; 1803-1816, at the old Federal Road crossing. Here was born David Moniac (Manack), first Indian appointed to the United States Military Academy; here was entertained Peggy and Lorenzo Dow, and Aaron Burr, under arrest, was here in 1807. Mrs. Manack was William Weatherford's mother-in law. [Note: actually she was William's sister]

In John R. Swanton's "Early History of the Creek Indians and their Neighbors" (Smithsonian Institute, Bureau of American Ethnology, Bulletin 73, Washington Government Printing Office, 1922): "The people of Tuskogee have some cattle, and a fine stock of hogs, more perhaps than any town of the nation. One man Sam Macnack [Sam Moniack], a half-breed, has a fine stock of cattle. He had, in 1799, one hundred and eighty calves. They have lost their language, and speak Creek, and have adopted the customs aand manners of the Creeks. They have thirty-five gun men."

Went to New York with Alexander McGillivray in 1790 and received medal from George Washington.

Samuel Manac to the treasury dept..
Washington May 1816

" In August, 1816, I was commanding officer at the town of Mobile when the massacre of Fort Mimms took place. Soon afterwards, many of the citizens from the waters of Mobile fled to Fort Charlotte for protection; amongst them was Samuel Manac, his wife and children, who had, sometime before, been driven =nfrom the Nation where he resided. It was the universal opinion and belief at Mobile, that Sam Manac was an Indian, of large property, and that he had lost it all,or nearly all, by his fidelity to the United States. While Manac remained in Mobile, he and his family were subsisted by issuing rations to them: they having no other means of support.
