Summary:
The following information is condensed from the handbook of American Indians, Bureau of American Ethnology, Bulletin 30, (which see): Tomochichi (spelled also Tomochachi, Temochichi, Thamachaychee, etc.) was a Creek chief who established himself at the town of Yamacraw (present Savannah, Georgia) shortly after 1721. On the foundation of the Georgia colony by Oglethorpe in 1733, Tomochichi assumed a friendly attitude toward the newcomers and was instrumental in bringing about a treaty of alliance between that colony and the Lower Creeks in that year. In 1734, with his wife, nephew, and several others, he accompanied Oglethorpe to England, where his portrait was painted. He continued to be helpful to the colonists after his return, until his death, which occurred in his own town of Yamacraw, October 5, 1739, he being then perhaps 75 years of age. He was given a public funeral at Savannah.
See also J. R. Swanton, Bureau of American Ethnology Bulletin 137, page 210. Swanton believes that the Yamacraw may have been part of the Yamasee. See also in Alice G. B. Lockwood, "Gardens of Colony and State," 1934, page 267. Caption: "Portrait of Tomo-Chi-Chi at 91 [sic], with the nephew who was his adapted son, Tooanakowhi. Painted by Verelst in London during their stay there with Oglethorpe, whose successful establishment of the Georgia Colony was largely due to Tomo-Chi-Chi's friendship and loyalty."

Summary:
"Oglethorpe presenting Tomo-chi-chi and the Indians to the Lord Trustees of the Colony of Georgia. Painted in 1734 by the Dutch [Flemish ?] painter, Willem Verelst. The original is in the possession of a descendant of the Earl of Shaftesbury, one of the Trustees. These are actual portraits. The key shown below has been furnished by the Georgia society of the Colonial Dames of America. [Key names the trustees but the Indians are not individually named. Oglethorpe is at center, standing, in black suit.]..." --Caption from Alice G. B. Lockwood, "Gardens of Colony and State," 1934, page 271. The woman in the picture would be Tomochichi's wife, and the young boy his nephew. See Bureau of American Ethnology Bulletin 30, Tomochichi.
