Surnames: Turner, Peters, Bass, Scott, Poythress, Jarrell
I am trying to research the surnames mentioned as well as the "Portuguese" Communites of Greensville and Brunswick Counties of VA and Northampton County, NC. These people were also known as the "gypsies" because of the way they lived and dressed. They were all of dark complexion and were listed as either mulatto, colored or "Portuguese". They were in fact Native American. I would love to make contact with anyone researching any of the surnames mentioned. I have a great deal of historical information regarding their Native ancestry as well as some genealogical information.

Thank you :)
Crystal :)
