In Response To: Re: The Generic "Free Negro" in early Virginia ()
The Indians who lived in the Indian town of Appamattox were called "Appamattox Indians", by the whites. When they moved to the Blackfoot Swamp, they became Blackfoot Indians. I am not aware of a single English surname among this group. They are found along the VA-NC border generally west of the Roanoke Rapids fall line.
