Re: Creek Freedmen
In Response To: Creek Freedmen ()
Posters just wanted to point out that Creek freedmen Dunn Roll #703 was never on the by blood roll, reason, because she was dead and also considered a slave. No blood quantum to figure to be placed on the by blood roll.
On the old series cards families were transferred to the freedmen roll after it was determined that the mother was a slave. If a blood quantum was mentioned, I believe it was a mistake or that person would have been enrolled on the by blood roll. There were a lot of errors made during the enrollment process for various reasons.
