Unknown Tribes of Indian Bands, Gens and Clans

Many tribes have sub-tribes, bands, gens, clans and phratry.  Often very little information is known or they no longer exist.  We have included them here to provide more information about the tribes. We have listed these bands by location as we can not find any other connection to tribes. Mississippi Amicoa. Mentioned by Coxe (Carolana, 14, 1741) as a tribe on the Honabanou, an imaginary river entering the Mississippi from the west, 15 leagues above the mouth of the Ohio. It is probably an imaginary tribe. Amilcou. Mentioned by Iberville in connection with the Biloxi, Moctobi, Huma, Paskagula, etc., as a small tribe North of the lower Mississippi in 1699 (Margry, Dec., iv, 155, 1880); not identified. Nevada Agaihtikara (fish-eaters). A division of the Paviotso living in 1866 in the vicinity of Walker River and lake and Carson River and lake, Nevada. They were under Chief Oderie and numbered about 1,500. North Carolina Akawenchaka  A small band that formerly lived in North Carolina, now numbering about 20 individuals, incorporated with the Tuscarora in New York. They are not regarded as true Tuscarora. Hewitt, Onondaga MS., B. A. E., 1888. Texas Acubadaos. A tribe known to Cabeza de Vaca (Smith transl., 84, 1851) during his sojourn in Texas, 1527-34, as living “in the rear” of or more inland than the Atayos (Adai). The region indicated would seem to be Caddoan country. Andacaminos (Span.: wanderers, probably referring to their roving character). One of the tribes of west Texas, some at least of whose people were neophytes of the mission of San Jose y San Miguel de Aguayo. Texas State Archives, Nov.,...

Nevada World War 2 NMCG Casualty List

Inclusion of names in this Nevada World War II Casualty List has been determined solely by the residence of next of kin at the time of notification of the last wartime casualty status. This listing does not necessarily represent the State of birth, legal residence, or official State credit according to service enlistment. Casualties listed represent only those on active duty in the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard, resulting directly from enemy action or from operational activities against the enemy in war zones from December 7, 1941, to the end of the war. Casualties in the United States area or as a result of disease, homicide or suicide in any location is not included. This is a state summary taken from casualty lists released by the Navy Department, corrected as to the most recent casualty status and recorded residence of next of kin. Personnel listed as MISSING are under continuous investigation by the Navy Department, and therefore will be officially presumed or determined dead. Some will be found alive. The last official notice to next of kin will take precedence over this list.
