In Response To: Re: does blood really matter ()
Who are the parents of Sarah Barnett? I thought her parents were Luster Marshall and Nancy Marshall. Who are the parents of Hattie/Hettie, let me know? So is Hattie really a sister to Sarah Barnett based on who Hattie's parents are.
Nancy was a by blood as stated on her census card with Kellop Murrell and she was born free.
But the reality of Nancy Murrell is that she was a by blood!!! I am at the moment thinking that because of the marriage to a freedmen, the family was placed on the freedmen roll. Kellop was also born free, son of Anthony Murrell, who was a slave of Ben Marshall. Sallie was a slave of Ben Marshall. Kellop was one of the Supreme judges in the Creek nation.
Another thought, Kellop could have chose to marry an Indian (and he did not), then I would think his whole family would have been placed on the by blood roll.
You know there were some freedmen that were mixed blood/by bloods (Indian parent dead), so a slave, with no proof of the Indian father.
