Re: Origin of some N.C. and Va. Indian tribes

Hello; Thank you for the time that you must heve spent gathering this data base. I hope that you can help me.Since a child I could never get much information on family heritage except that on both sides of my family there were Indian ancestors. I have noticed patterns, family clusters, who seem to travel together ( moving to similar counties in the southeast ) By the 1800's they seem be be mostly in Georgia, and Alabama. In my research prior to that they seemed to have clustered in Virginia, S. and N. Carolina's. The main Family surnames are: Bullock, ( E.C.Bullock, born 1821 S.C. )Crawford, Thompson,Bird or Byrd, Bailey and Scott. There is a Nathanial Bullock who I think was a scout during the American Revolution. He marries into the Hawkins family. The Hawkins perhaps Benjamine Hawkins, married an Indian woman, and named thier children Georhia, 1782 Hawkinsville, Pulaski Georgia, Carolina, Muscogee, and Cherokee Hawkins. There is a frontier fort that was named after him, and I think he may have adopted orphan Indian children.Both sides of my mothers family tru oraltradition said that they were orphaned from Indian raids along the Florida , geogia borsder, abt 1830 -1840.There was also many mentions of Natchez Miss. , and The Natchez people.A william H. Crawford was listed as a surveror, and perhaps he like others gain land via treaty with the Indians ,or tru thier Revolutionary War pensions.I have also found reference to a Isham Scott, Parents french, and Catawaba. Many Scott's are listed as Mulattos, from 1752 Inhenrico Virginia , and 1810 census Sumter S.C. Carolina.The Byrd family may connect to Families on the N.C. Vir. Border ( Indian families listed as Indians in Gates Co. N.C. and Halifax Co. N.C.My mother had a light complextion, stiaght black hair. Indian or North African features. Althought both my parents were listed as Black, I have cooper colored skin, and I have always been drawned to Native American teachings. I'v always felt different, and I began this search in hopes of finding answers about my roots.Please let me know what you think about all of this, and if it makes sence. I hope that you can help me varify aspects of my heritage. Thank you James Bullock
