In Response To: Re: HILL & RICHARDSON ()

So I have since found out that Rachel Hill was the daughter of Polly Johns. In her Guion Miller application she states that Johns is a Native American(maybe why she was born free), but I could find no Polly Johns in NC at all. I found one in Va. in the earlier 1840 Census in a house where all were marked as mulatto.My DNA comes back as 3.5% Native American, but that may not have been from them. I found my Richardsons in Goinstown(Jim and Mary Martin Richardson) so I thought maybe you all would have some info on the Johns surname. The only clue I have so far is that it was on Walter A Pleckers list and actually it seem to point the finger at the Polly Johns that I found in Va because it list the surname as belonging to the same county.
