KP ....go to the Martin Family Forum#21062. This is the Indian connection. as far as we can tell. Some of the others may have Indian, also. I am told that the families in Jones Co were of mixed races. That is from locals who have lived there all their lives. To document any of this we would have to go to the Cherokee rolls, etc. My husband has dark skin, hair and eyes plus he runs like a deer.....errrr or use to!! What else do you need to know??
