Recently, I've been researching an ancestor of mine, Matilda Maggard, who was a descendant of Moses Adams and Mary Garland. While researching, I came across a book written by N. Brent Kennedy abt. a group of people called the Melungeons. These people were of Portuguese and Indian descent who are mainly inhabitants of Appalachia. While looking through this book, I found four surnames that were used by Melungeons in my lineage. The names listed were: Maggard- Matida's last name; Adams- Moses Adams was Matilda's grandfather; Garland- Mary's last name; and Robertson- a ancestor of Matilda's on the Maggard side. Does anyone think there is a possibility of Melungeon ancestry in Moses Adams?
