Re: Who Were the Skilled African Iron Workers?
In Response To: Re: Who Were the Skilled African Iron Workers? ()
The above question was asked in 2004, because I believed that my 4th and 5th great grandfathers were iron workers at the Catoctin Furnace in Frederick, Maryland.
Again, I thank you for your answer and I wanted you to know that there is a corelation between your answer and the DNA results. The DNA sequence similarity measure is 100% the same as the IGBO People of NIGERIA and the MBUNDU People in ANGOLA today.
Further research shows that the Igbo were at other Virginia and Pennsylvania furnaces.
