Re: does blood really matter
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.
If you don't get your answers from the allotment papers, you need to contact the Creek nation and ask them why Nancy was placed on the freedmen roll. All I can do is look at documents that are available and the Creek nation has more information that they can give you. I guess you just have to ask them.

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.
