Be Excellent to Each Other...

Howdy Partners!

    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.

Lars, what a good statement! Also, totally cool photocopy of the 17th century Bible with written notes identifying Chowan heritage. That would be cool to post. Finally, I like the new look of the web page, but the black text on black background makes it difficult to follow. Your rock!!

I should have added my request on the lines here I guess,
for I do need to know at least 3 generations on every Chawanoke family that is known, for they are such an important brick in the wall. I suspect that many of their descendatns show up further west, south and north in the following decandes and century marrying into some of those "some sort of Native blood" families of the Carolinas, VA-WV, KY-TN and byond
