For all you scholars out there, I’ve just added two really fine links to dissertations and scholarly papers dealing with the Shawnee in West Virginia and the Ohio Valley  and the settlement of the area in Western Virginia and what is now upper East Tennessee. The first,Indian Warfare, Household Competencies and Settlement of the Western Virginia Frontier 1749 to 1794,   while dealing with the Cherokee arch enemy, rounds out the picture of what other tribes were doing in this area and trade  ( . The latter , The Conquest of the Old SouthWest (1740-1790’s)  , written by Henderson, is an academic overview of settlement of the area. Both are pdf. files and easy to read.
