Hi, I understand that this was posted some time ago, however i think I may be of much interest to you. My father was the bastard child of "Korla Pandit" aka John Roland Redd. Making him my grandfather. I am very interested in having dialogue or at least some form of contact regarding this portion of my family history. I do not doubt the legitimacy of this do to the striking resemblance my father and I, and subsequently my son bare to John Roland Redd. This has been of much interest to me because prior to your research I had always believed myself to be an 8th East Indian, which you have proven to be untrue. I am also interested and willing to do any genetic testing available to prove my heritage.
Ps I bare the last name of my mothers step father.
