Sugeree Indians. A small tribe, supposed to have been Siouan, that lived near the Waxhaw in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, and York County, South Carolina. They occupied a fertile district and, according to Lawson1 inhabited many towns and settlements. They were doubtless greatly reduced by the Yamasee War of 1715 and later merged in the Catawba.
