While her daughter (Jessie Florence) would not talk about it much, she did say Florence was an Hitchiti Indian. The Creek Indian village named Hitchiti (or Hitichi), a Muscogee Tribe on the east bank of the Chattahoochee river, 4 miles below Auhegee Creek (Flint River?) in Georgia. The town would have been destroyed during the Creek Indian Wars (1813-1830s). See also Hitchiti Tribe.
