Timpoochy--usually called Major Timpoochy Barnard; another of the Creek delegation to Washington, whose name is also affixed to the Treaty of 1826. A man famed for his bravery, generosity, and noble bearing. He was in alliance with the Americans in the former Seminole war, and fought valliantly and successfully under Gen. Jackson. He distinguished himself on one of the most interesting occasions by throwing himself with about a hundred of his warriors between a routed regiment of Americans and a powerful and pursuing force of the Seminoles; gave the pursuers fight, and held them in check until the regiment was rallied, when he fell into line and shared in the glory of the triumph. Major Timpoochy Barnard is a Uchee. [P. 4.]
