Re: Black and Native Relations - REDMAN info

Hi Paul :)

> Richard was one of the most common

I record ALL male (because they pass on the surname) REDMANs I come across before the Civil War. For your info, my REDMAN database has ...
- only about 80 Richard REDMANs
- over 200 George REDMANs
- almost 500 William REDMANs
- over 500 John REDMANs.

Latest info pulled from his descendants' applications for Indian status indicates that the Indian heritage came through William REDMAN's wife Nancy BLY. There was also mention that William REDMAN's father was Dick REDMAN. Dick has been known to be a nickname for Richard ???
