In Response To: Indian? ()
Hi Tsonga. The Hurst family of Southampton County is on my site. Many members of the family descended from Faithy Hurst, a "Mulatto" taxable from 1802 to 1804 who emancipated her husband in 1806. The census which was taken of the reservation in Southampton County in 1808 did not include any Hursts.
There were very few people living on the reservation in 1808. The census included adults Littleton Scholar, Tom Turner, Jemmy Wineoak, Edy Turner and Betsy Step. Children: Tom Step, Henry Turner, Alexander Rogers, John Woodson, Winny Woodson, Anny Woodson, Polly Woodson, Fanny Bartlett, Solomon Bartlett, Billy Woodson and Jenny Woodson.
No adult Indian was married to or sharing a household with any other adult Indian. Most had free African American wives or husbands.
