Re: Reuben Benjamin Mason Family, Fairfield County


Do you know the circumstances that delivered Reuben's mother to Upstate New York, as the Catawba's were from the Carolinas? Also, what Indian uprising prompted her to head south, finally to end up in the Catawba homelands? The Indian history could help provide some of your answers. I've found that when researching east coast native people, that anthropological and archaeological studies can often provide information about the history and settlement of tribes that you might not find elsewhere.

Also, do you know how your ancestors self-identified, and were described racially in the censuses?
