Margaret Musselwhite was my paternal great-grandmother.As a child, my Grandma Halcomb used to tell me her mother-in-law, Margaret, was a white witch, a healer.
My grandparents were John and Georgia Creech Halcomb. They were born in Eastern Kentucky, but moved back and forth across the Kentucky-Virginia state line several times, as their forbears did.
Grandma Halcomb was very dark-skinned, slender, and had bushy black eyebrows. Her daughters, Ollie, Ora, and Hassie were black-haired and rather hairy for women.Grandma told me our family had "Black Dutch" in it.I have since learned that is another name for "Melungeon".
Grandpa was blue-eyed and fair skinned.I would like to know more about his mother, Margaret, whose maiden name was Musselwhite.
