Re: Free men, Slaves & Slave Traders of Creek Nati
In Response To: Free men, Slaves & Slave Traders of Creek Nation ()
Yes William Marshall Creek freedmen, cc#1035 would have been placed on the by blood roll if his mother had been an Indian. Williams' mother being a slave placed him on the freedmen roll.
Usually there is some indication that a freedmen has a by blood parent by some notation on a by blood census card, but none in this situation (just have to assume this is the same Ben Marshall, the slave owner). Owner or not we all
But, Richard Adkins' Creek by blood census card #3946 states that his mother was Nellie Marshall, a full blood. Nellie's father was Ben Marshall according to other documentation although not stated on the census card.
