Hi Leon, Sometimes I have trouble telling who I or someone else is replying to on this message board. When I said that a Black Indian in Virginia might have evolved to Black Foot, I was not saying that is how the name of the actual Blackfoot Indian tribe evolved. I know a couple of people who had it handed down that they were Cherokee, when one turned out to be Creek and another Crow. Cherokee was just a familiar name and they were in a lot of locations. I thought it might be possible for someone who heard they were descended from a Black Indian to add the name Foot in there, because they had heard of a Blackfoot Tribe and it made more sense to them.
