My grandfathers grandmother was a full blooded Monican Indian from Central Virginia, particularly in Amherst County/Lynchburg VA area. Her name was Mary Poe. The only thing I've been able to find on her is a census. This is the side of the family I am most interested in and I'm hitting a dead end. My grandfather doesn't know her parents names or much about anyone else further down the line on the Poe side of the family because his father died when he was 9 years old and his mother was very hateful towards the Native Americans so she didn't allow him to see that part of his family after his fathers death. Is there anyone here that has been able to look into family members that were Monican indian? It seems to me like most of them did not submit to public records and my only hope may be to go to Amherst and visit the info center that the tribe has there but I was hoping to find something on here if I can. If anyone has any suggestions on how I may be able to find more information on this part of the family I would really appreciate it!
