Descendants of Pocahontas and John Rolfe have become one of the most vitally involved First Families of Virginia (FFV) in the history of the United States. The family, and the families into which they have married, include local, state, national, and international political arenas. Descendants were judges, members of the Continental Congress, United States and State Senators and Representatives, and were members of families by blood or marriage to numerous Presidents of the United States.
Family men were involved in practically every battle and war in United States history, and ranks ranged from infantryman up to Captains, Colonels, Majors, and Commodores, as well as serving on both sides of the Civil War. Family members have served in the United States Senate and House of Representatives, as state Governors, as well as diplomats to foreign countries, including Russia. The descendants or their spouses have served as doctors, scholars, church leaders, college presidents, founders of fraternal organizations, as well as married into descendants of European royalty.
