There you go girl,Now you are getting the jest of it. I'm not sure where I read it on the web, but somewhwere it said that the (don't quote me on this) that the people of the Lumberton River area just recieved there trible rights. no federal funding though. yes App. mountianpeople are a diverse bunch. I saw something today that was very strange, I went to search(I think) put in Eli Sanders. Went to page on desc. of Lodavock Grant. Native records by Starr. Surename Adkins came up. This Adkins man had married this woman, all their children were registered under the name (Akin) instead of Adkins. This was not a typo.mistake.Akin carried down the generations. Also I find that many of the families named by the matrial line. (Example..> Tom Jones marries T.Tucker. under this form of nameing the children would be , Tom, Jerry & Jane Tucker, instead of Jones. Happy hunting Dottie Moore.
