Re: Creek Freedmen
In Response To: Re: Creek Freedmen ()
Erma, read my previous posts. As you know freedmen can be by blood (mixed blood) and still be on the freedmen roll. I noticed that Nancy Murrell was Indian by blood on the Dunn roll, her parents were dead, as indicated on her census card. The reason(s) why a family is placed on the freedmen roll (slavery), read my posts.
Also, from what I am seeing, Nancy Murrell being a by blood married Anthony Murrell, who was a slave of Ben Marshall. There is no documentation of who Nancy's mother was, but Nancy did not choose to marry an Indian.
