I tried to understand the confusing freeman family.
This is what I found but exactly how to interperet is anyones guess.
The has been a geneological study of Freemans south of the James
41 male participants results are Q-M3 (Q3/Q1a3a1) Y-DNA hologroup(native american)
11 of these man in direct native male line are linkable to:
John Freeman b.1718 Chowan pricinct of Albermarle Co NC
who married Sarah Hare b. 1720 Nansemond Va (1st husband named Winborne)
Solomon b. 1738
Elizabeth b. 1739
Elisha b. 1741
John b. 1742
Aaron b. 1745
all born in Chowan Co.
most likely all 41 of the men share this ancestor
In this line is a Cherokee claim filed by John H Bennight
This line i think is mentioned in a Lowe family application to the Creek nation
some members of this line are members of the Choctaw nation.
It is possible that this is the John Freeman listed on the 1751 chowanoke land deed
This sort of implies that;
John Freeman b 1685 and wife Tabitha ? 100 acres on the west side of catherine creek
whos male descendants test as european are possibly an entirely different family ?
I guess no way to know for sure.
certainly identity theft was a common native practice for hiding.
also avoiding written records was a common native practice.
but on the other hand native marriages were (how can i put it ?)
more "open" ? so who knows.
I am from John Freeman, down to James Freeman down to William Freeman. I am having the same problems. Just wondering if you have ever figured these lines out?
Going in circles....
