Lumbee, Croatan, Cherokee of Eastern North Carolinas

The Lumbee or Croatans are considered a multi-ethnic group who are of Native American Ancestry. This blog is being created as a venue for discussion of discovery of our ancestors who were Free Persons of Color before 1860 and to trace their ancestry through Eastern North Carolina. Many of the counties where they lived include: Sampson, Robeson, Randolph, Caldwell, Chowan, Warren, Halifax, Edgecombe, Chatham, Northampton, Nash, Cumberland and Lenoir. These ancestors are said to be connected to the Lost Colony of Roanoke in North Carolina and therefore share the same surnames of many of the members of that expedition began by Sir Walter Raleigh from England.
