Choptank Indians. Apparently a tribe consisting of 3 sub-tribes the Ababco, Hutsawap, and Tequassimo formerly living on Choptank River in Maryland. In 1741 they were given a reserve near Secretary Creek, on the south side of Choptank River, in Dorchester County, on the Eastern shore, where a few of mixed Indian and Negro blood still remained in 1837. See: Bozman, Maryland, i, 115, 1837.
