Been a little while since my last blog, so I thought I'd go for another post. As you can see, the site underwent a little rehab and I think it, (hopefully) looks a little better than before. But besides that, we have some excellent new members! We are now a very well rounded group of descendants. We are represented by descendants encompassing just about all of the known Chowanoke lines. Peruse our members section, you will find people from the Robbins, Bennett, Basse and Freeman lines, as well as many members descended from lines not yet proven Chowanoke, though likely such as Parks/Parker, Benton and Lassiter. Many of us have had persistant rumors of indian blood from these lines before we knew of our Chowan heritage, and these old stories and rumors are the last bit of family identification that has been passed down since time immemorial, and we can't forget our past. A great way to get to know our ancestors is to get to know each other. I encourage you, send each other messages, post to our forums. Our individual stories are small pieces to a larger puzzle, and soon, by talking with each other, we get get the full patchwork quilt of our common history.
