Hello, My name is Shawn Oxendine-Walter and I live in New Jersey. I am a descendant of Mary White Oxendine and William Oxendine of Sumter,SC. They were my great grandparents.I am African American and I heard in the past that we have some connection to the Oxendines in North Carolina, Pemberton I believe.I've also heard that we are descendants of Lumbee Indians.Anyone with more information, (my family in particular but not exclusively because I find it all very interesting) like when, why and how was the migration to SC; how we may be related to any other Oxendines in other areas; and any relations to Mary White Oxendine and William Oxendine.Also, when, how and from where did Oxendines come to this counrty or are we all "native" Americans.Growing up I've heard so many different stories that don't all seem to be likely, i.e. Oxendines came here from Turkey; that we are from English descent, etc. My personal email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
