a Blount lead…

To Justin … you are researching Collins near Indian Woods… this mentions Roquist Swamp. I’m curious of any reactions to this land deal… quite a few folks mentioned. This is too garbled for me to draw the metes and bounds in my usual manner but it is not impossible. By surrounding the area with other complete deeds it can be fairly well established… it just takes a lot of time and tedious effort.

The Colson reference also intrigues me. Colson was a Trader who I thought was situated at Occoneechee Neck but here some Colsons are around Indian Woods.

I’m just throwing this out for any comments… I will probably return to it later…

I leave the family info up to you folks… I’m tracking the Traders (which is what I think Blount was).

  1. Hey, thanks a bunch! Yes, I might be descended from this Thomas Collins. My tree ends with Thomas Collins, born 1769. This could have been his father, or grandfather. I have seen Collson and Harrington show up in some DNA matches. I also have noted that connection between people up at Occoneechee Neck and down at Indian Woods. Then some of them moved down to South Carolina, I believe.

  2. I just redid some analysis on GEDmatch, overlapped with Family Tree DNA results (which gives you the segment information) and then AncestryDNA, where you can look at people’s trees (and see who matches where, and get a hunch of where a signal might be coming from). I see again Bryant, Colson, Harrington, Whitmell, and Melton in the trees of people who match on a Siberian segment, and it’s definitely from that neighborhood. Somebody in that family cluster was of indigenous ancestry, and I can’t tell if it’s from Indian Woods, or arrived there. Supposedly Melton originated up in New Kent County across from the Pamunkey Reservation. I don’t really understand where the Bryants, Whitmells, and others came from. They did settle right beside the Tuscarora. I have wondered if Blount, the Tuscarora headman, might have married off daughters into neighboring landowning families.
