Re: family search
In Response To: Re: family search ()
I do have a relative who married a Native American man in NC. Her mother was mixed raced (White Mother and Black Father). She was a Barefoot and married a Jacobs, Sampson County, NC. At that time, the census enumerated her family as Indian, but she was not.
Note: I thought Barefoot was Native American, found out they are from England.
She married into an Indian family and the Census taker put the entire family in the Indian race. It's my understanding that they had 4 children and 1 of the children came out of the tribe while the other 3 stayed in the tribe.
Just my two cents worth. Thanks for sharing.
