Far off Warrior Tustenuggee Hopaithele Haujo

In 1777 there was an attack on the fort, the tribe captured a young girl named Hannah Hale, who was about 11 or 12 years old. In all likelihood, her father was a soldier stationed at the fort.

Young Hannah Hale, and probably several other captives, were taken to the Far Off Warrior's village known by traders as the "Fish Ponds" and located on the Coosa River situated in present day Coosa County, Alabama. Hannah Hale would later marry the Far Off Warrior, Tustunnuggee Hopoie, and by him have five Children.

Information concerning the Okchai Indians from which the Lalokalka settlement evolved can be found in John R. Swanton's book "The Indians of the Southeastern United States" both the Okchai Town and its settlement Lalokalka, of the "Fish Ponds", were commonly call the Fishponds by the fur traders.
