This book contains thousands of names of historical Shawnee figures both great and small, providing information on their lineages, clans, political divisions, treaties signed and battles fought. The entries are the result of many years of painstaking research in an area where birth, marriage and death certificates, wills and such are seldom available. An Appendix by Noel Schutz, a student of the eminent Shawnee linguist the late Charles F. Voegelin, provides a description of the Shawnee naming system and social organization (clans, phratries and divisions). In addition, endnotes offer an analysis of the meaning and clan affiliations of many Shawnee names. This work is a valuable resource for scholars and laymen alike. It is a must for those who have Native American roots it provides genealogical information on ancestors and their descendants. Second Edition. Contact Don Greene here

Well without sources, it's just a bunch of conjectures about relationships.
So, take it with a big grain of salt and until he forks over sources, I wouldn't add any of this to my family tree.

There is a listing for "Starniker" who was a scout for Andrew Lewis in the French and Indian War. This looks suspiciously like Capt. Samuel Stalnaker, whose name was occasionally spelled Starniker (among other ways), and who did serve with Lewis as a liaison with the Cherokee, among whom he had been a trader (documented in George Washington's correspondence). Far from being a Shawnee, he was German.
