I have worked on the Melungeons for MANY years. Black Dutch could mean
someone with a swarthy complexion and not wanting to say part Indian or
Melungeon. In our area the term could have been used because it was
accepted to be Black Dutch but maybe not Indian or Melungeon. Some
researchers think there are many people in Eastern KY that have Melungeon
ancestors. Penny in Laurel Co. KY
