Jasper "Daddy Jack" Monix of Alabama
It's been a while since I've participated on the Afrigeneas message boards.
I am still researching my Monix lineage.
My ancestor Jasper "Daddy Jack" Monix was a Native American who was used as a 'breeder' on a plantation (unknown location), according to oral history. This isn't surprising given the poor way that Native Americans were treated around the time of Native American removal.
He had a son by an African woman who was brought from New Orleans. Their son, George "Paw-Paw" Monix was born in Uniontown, AL in 1868 and was said to be half Indian, according to the family oral history. There was a charcoal/pencil sketch of him showing an angular nose, straight hair, and a derby hat (confirmed by several family members).
Here's the male lineage that I have on record:
Since Uniontown is in southwest Perry County, AL, near Morengo, and lots of Choctaws lived there, I suspect Jasper may have been Choctaw.
I am working on a genealogy write-up for my family. I'd like to include some speculation of Jasper's heritage. Can anyone help me gather info on the African-American-Choctaws of southwest AL ca. 1870?
