Before the Ann left Beaufort, Oglethorpe had to make friends with the Yamacraw Indians and their chief, Tomochichi. Oglethorpe went to the trading post in the Yamacraw village to find a translator. The trading post was operated by John Musgrove and his wife Mary, who was part Native American and part British. Oglethorpe offered John Musgrove about 100 British pounds a year to translate between the Yamacraw and settlers. John agreed to act as a translator, but Mary soon took over for him. With Mary’s help, Oglethorpe and Chief Tomochichi established a close friendship that lasted until the chief’s death in 1739. The South Carolina colonists, delighted to have new neighbors, loaded the ship with barrels of rice, a hundred cows, thirty hogs, sheep, and oxen and 2,000 British pounds. One South Carolinian, Mr. Hume, even sent along a silver baby spoon to honor the first child born in the new colony.
