They came into Fannin county in 1847 and settled later in Collin county.

3. Re: [MELUNGEON] Melungeon Research [1]
This family sounds interesting and I'd like to do some research on them, just for the experience of it and because I'm interested. But you haven't given me a single name or date to start with. If I just start looking for Collins and Bunchs in Berie County, NC, and Louisa Co, VA, I don't think I could narrow my search down to your specific family. Do you think you could give me just a few details to start with? I'm not asking for all your research. That would certainly be too much information for yo
4. [MELUNGEON] Poor Al Goins - Eddie [1]
The ballad to which you refer is called "Poor Goins" and is credited to Gabriel Church. It is a story of Alexander Goins, "man of the Melungeon people of southwest Virginia and Tenneessee." There are at least two different versions of the reason behind Goins' ambush and murder on the ridge (known as Goins Ridge) of the nine mile spur of Black Mountain, near Stonega, Wise County, VA. The Maggard family tells one version, while the Church family tells a different story. Tradition has it that Goins' grandfa

Still reading the emails. Is there an existing tape or verbatim transcript of Dr. Jones? I trust Karlton's note-taking content-wise but would prefer to refer directly to Jones's quotes. Tim Hashaw In a message dated 1/16/08 10:14:15 AM Central Standard Time, writes: > >

Dennis, you are the King of the equivocators. If I said that the sandflies were buzzing over the corpses of the dead Armenians, you would write a post taking me to task because you KNOW they were blue-bottle flies. You need another history lesson, but this isn't the time or place. Suffice it to say that the young men who emerged FROM among the Ottoman's most promising to stand with Attaturk, that is, those who BECAME the "Young Turks" WERE Ottomon Turks the day before they took the pledge,

Tari, "When will these non-Melungeon "researchers" quit." LOL, do you know how to say "Tar and Feather" ? I see it this way, since our forefathers/mothers are not here to stand up for themselves, well I guess that is our responsibility. I know they would be standing up for us if the situation was reversed. I also find it interesting that the MHA supports these "researchers". Thieves are just that.

The 'story' IF it was subjective, was such to TWO people who were friends but did not know one another well; had not talked about Joanne before. When two people agree on something and the incident HAPPENED exactly as I wrote it, then there must be something less than subjective. AND as to the following statement from Joanne: Fabricating stories to prove a point is one thing but Nancy this 'story' is one of your best. She just called me a LIAR and isn't that really subjective? I will write n

Dennis and all, Sorry to have to correct a newly found cousin. You are correct in that Bud Phillip's latest book is called Coming Down Cumberland (published in 1991). His first book, published in 1958, MAGGARD FAMILY HISTORY (and probably self published), has been out of print for decades. It is only 19 pages long. It was from this book that I referred to his mention of Panther Jim's family bible. The Bible is also referred to in his book Coming Down Cumberland. I was lucky enough to obtain my co

>His mtDNA shows Siddi ancestry, which is not indicative of Turkish >ancestry. I don't think it even showed that. Dr. Jones said it was "unquestionanably Siddi" but no one on the Genealogy-DNA list had ever heard of any sequences to show that, neither did the PubMed site I was refered to shed any light. I do think Brent believes this. Janet ----- Original Message ----- From: "Dennis Maggard" To: Sent: Thursday, January 10, 2008 1:15 PM Subject: Re: [ME

Helloooooooo Felicia It is so good to hear from you. Yes, Nancy is still out there. I sometimes wonder about those that have no life other than sitting before the monitor and arguing. Isn't it uncanny how people can hide behind that screen. When I was in Nancy's company at the unions and such, she is not like this. She is not as agressive. Oh well, sigh I am good and getting older and meaner each day. You be safe and know that I do hold fond memories of you and your posts. Twanda

22. Re: [MELUNGEON] DNA [1]
Darcy, There are "mysteries" in most all families. We also have a case in our IVEY/IVIE/IVY project where the paternal line of one of 6 "brothers" is completely different from the other 5. The descendents of this ancestor had not a clue of this until Y-DNA testing. The ancestor lived with and near his "presumed" mother from the mid 1850s till the mother died in the 1870s. He also lived in the same household and later next to one of his presumed brothers. Life in earlier times was not as simple as we
You may be right, what I said, I said from memory. One of the counties where the Shumate's / Conway's ended up became part of WVA. I thought it was Fauquier.

I'll make a long story short ... A guy walks into a bar ... [... Things happen, he keeps making stupid bets, and one-by-one parts of him fall off, etc., etc.] Finally, after his neck falls off, a guy saunters over and asks him if he wants to bet one more time ...
