Re: TAPPAN /Bragg is a family of interest for the lost colony of NC
Anne, I was ckg on Bragg surname history, etc...came across the Lost Colony info...and your post.Am also interested in finding if Nichols is derived from Romanichels (?) as my searching has lead me to think I have links to the Black Forest, Germanic/Bohemian tribes..anyway, in my travels I came across a Tappan Colony and couldn't recall where it was, so I Googled the term and there were some interesting links..just some fyi..I have Black Dutch, Gypsy, UNK Indian Women references, to ck out, concerning a lot of my kin.None of the "indian" links lead to the recognition of the "5 Civilized Tribes" in Oklahome, tho I have a lot of kin who migrated there, also.Re: Nickels/Morgan-Magoffin Co's, Ky...a collateral line to my Elam/Sublett/Gardners, thru inlaws or some such. Dyer/Perry etc..most with a seafaring background. Interesting.
