Descendants of Richard NERO

Hey There Shawnia,

Marzetta NERO is my DOUBLE cousin--- 1st cousin twice removed (1C2R); common ancestor Fannie LEWIS. She is my 2nd cousin twice removed (2C2R); common ancestors Jess and Hannah HILDERBRAND.

Your grandmother is Dorothy? If so, you and I are double cousins as well!
This set of NERO’S are not related to the NERO’S of this thread. The progenitor of Marzetta’s family was Nero IRONS a Cherokee Freedman, who died before enrollment, and Fannie LEWIS-IRONS-MCNAC-MILLER, a Creek Freedman. The children disowned the slaveholders name and adopted NERO as their surname.

Nero and Fannie had four children which included Richard.
