Coree Indians

Coree tribe, or Coranine Tribe, Coranine Indians. Meaning unknown. Coree Connections. As the final stage of the Coree existence was passed with an Algonquian tribe, some have thought that the affiliations of  this people were also Algonquian. On the other hand Lawson (1860) that notes that their language and that of a tribe to the north were mutually intelligible and there is a reason for thinking that this northern tribe belonged to the Iroquois Confederacy. At least the Coree were closely associated in many ways with the Iroquoian Tuscarora. Coree Location. On the peninsula south of Neuse River in Carteret an Craven Counties. Coree Villages Coranine, probably on the coast in Carteret County. Narhantes, among the Tuscarora, 30 miles from Newbern. Raruta, probably on the coast of Carteret County, south of Neuse River. Coree History. When the Coree and the Whites first met is unknown, but they appear in the records of the Raleigh colony under the name Cwarennoc. They were greatly reduced before 1696 in a war with another people. They took part with the Tuscarora in their war against the colonists, and in 1715 the remnant of them and what was left of the Machapunga were assigned a reservation on Mattamuskeet Lake in Hyde County, where they occupied one village, probably until they became extinct. A few of them appear to have remained with the Tuscarora. Coree...

Neusiok Indians

Neusiok Tribe: Probably a place name. Neusiok Connections. The form of this name suggests that the Neusiok were of the Algonquian stock, but they may have been Iroquoian like their neighbors the Tuscarora and Coree (?). Neusiok Location. On lower Neuse River particularly on the south side, in Craven and Cartaret Counties. Neusiok Village. Chattooka, on the site of Newbern, and Rouconk, exact location unknown. Neusiok History. In 1584 Amadas and Barlowe heard of the Neusiok as at war with the tribes farther north. The later settlers speak to of them as Neuse Indians. They dwindled away rapidly and perhaps united finally with the Tuscarora. Neusiok Population.-With the Coree the Neusiok are estimated by Mooney (1928)  at 1,000 in the year 1600. In 1790 they numbered but 15 warriors although occupying two towns. Connection in which they have become noted. The name Neusiok is connected with that of the River Neuse in North Carolina, and a post...

Coree Tribe

Coree Indians. A tribe, possibly Algonquian, formerly occupying the peninsulas of Neuse river, in Carteret and Craven counties, North Carolina. They had been greatly reduced in a war with another tribe before 1696, and were described by Archdale as having been a bloody and barbarous people. Lawson refers to them as Coranine Indians, but in another place calls them Connamox, and gives them two villages in 1701–Coranine and Raruta–with about 125 souls. They engaged in the Tuscarora war of 1711, and in 1715 the remnants of the Coree and Machapunga were assigned a tract on Mattamuskeet Lake, Hyde County, North Carolina, where they lived in one village, probably until they became...
