Re: Winborn/Winbun in NC
In Response To: Re: Winborn/Winbun in NC ()
I made a trip to Ohio and found some interesting things out about my Winbun(Winburns) Elizabeth who is listed in the 1848 registry of FPC married Meridy(Meridith) Haithcock. Apparently, the Haithcocks and possibly the Winbuns are Occaneechi-Saponi indians. I'm still trying to sort through all the new info and I am running across quite a lot of Stewart's in the Occaneechi-Saponi tribe as well. I'm wondering if they could be relations to my Stewarts in Lincoln County, KY? I haven't been able to connect them as of yet. I know there has always been a murmuring of having indian ancestry but that is hard to prove. Has anyone else encountered this? If so where did you start looking to confirm?
