I am very interested in the study of the Va/NC tidal area. I have done genealogy for over 40 years and have been involved in genetic testing for at least 10 years. One of my goals is to prove genetically that John Bunch mid 1600 Va married a Native American and then determine what tribe. I know that is a lofty goal but I am determined. I descend from son John and Mary Temperace Bates.
The Waters NC Supreme Court case to marry is in my family with Zilpha Thompson being a Blevins descendant and further back John Bunch. Also most people already are aware of the Basse/Bunch connections.
