Re: Chickasaw Freedmen Search
In Response To: Re: Chickasaw Freedmen Search ()

Greetings Kathy,

In your post:
>>>I was doing research on my husband family when I found your post. As you can see Love is the last name,ancestors were chickasaw freedmen owned by Love, Colbert, Burney. I have been researching Love, Gunn, Stevenson, Yates, Abrams. Any info is appreciated. <<<

I noted with great interest the surnames mentioned in your post. As you've probably discovered the names LOVE, COLBERT, and BURNEY are some of the significant names of "mixed blood" slave owning families in the Chickasaw Nation. If I follow your post, the surnames of your husbad LOVE, GUNN, STEVENSON, YATES and ABRAMS are familiar and exist in some of my associated lines. The STEVENSON surname was quite prolific and prominent among the freedmen and some lines have a direct connection to the COLBERT slave owning family.

Since you have alreay conducted research on these lines, I would only ask that you contact me privately to compare notes. Hopefully I have some information too share with you. Or at the very least, point you to someone who may be more help with your research.

Kathy I would be interested in knowing the families your husband is associated with to explore any possible links.
