==========================================================

Paul,
In your opinion, what are the chances of Pamunkey also mixing with AA slaves in this area (Goochland Co., Va) prior to the 1800?

It is believed that a slave ancestor had several children (5) fathered by a member(s) of the Pamunkey tribe. The births would have taken place between ca 1760-1775 time period.

Seems strange to me, but I am finding stranger things in my research. :)

TIA,

Art Thomas
