Re: Say What? Stidham Roll of Creek Self Emigrants

I can see that John could be a HALF brother of Silas maybe, but in order to be a full brother, John's parents would have to be the same as Silas, especially, the mother would have to be Indian.
Compare the census cards for both Silas Jefferson and John Jefferson and you will see what I mean.
Again, if John is listed with a freedmen mother, it makes sense that John would be listed on the freedmen roll and NOT on the by blood roll.
At the present time, there is no enrollment for freedmen because of being listed on the freedmen roll. Only the by bloods are enrolled.
