Re: Blair Underwood ancestry- SCOTT/HUMBLE

Hi Barry,
Here is what I said:
"But most telling was the findings that he had free ancestors who were SCOTTs and HUMBLES and that they had been free at least before 1806. If the persons who researched for him had bothered to check out Paul Heinegg's work, they would have found that the SCOTTs were free people of color for an awfully long time. And more importantly, the HUMBLES family were free at least from the 1740's, and in fact, that the "Tabby HUMBLE" of Amherst Co., VA, that was Underwood's ancestor, was even mentioned specifically in Paul's work as "Taba HUMBLES" and was very likely to have been the daughter of Martha HUMBLES, a free woman of color who lived in Amherst Co. "

The link to Paul Heinegg's website, "Free African Americans..." can be found at the top of this forum, the Free Persons of Color Forum, which is the Message Board for the site.
Once you get to the website, click onto "Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina", which will take you to a list of Surnames and all of the research for them.
