There are some interesting possibilities and further scrutiny is required. The
list on the COLBERT'S AND LOVE'S should prove quite helpful.

The following information comes from excerpts of "who Was Who Among the
Southern Indians", by Don Martini. I have one little request from any
researcher that makes a connection from this information. I would like to hear
from anyone with connections to the slave holding family or the descendant of
the slaves. It is my goal to compile as much information on these slaves and
make connections for all descendants with this history. Many of my ancestral
lines have history with these families and I would very much like too see us
make that connection again. The information is also given as a contribution to
the Afrigeneas Slave Data Project for Archival purposes, I'm sure with the
same intention, I just have a personal interest and feel the need to fulfill
it. I would also like to suggest, there will be references to information
sources in footnotes, if someone on the list has access to these documents,
microfilms, publications, would you forward your findings too me?
