I am a great great grandchild of Tommie Jane Johnakin McCrae of Bennettsville, SC which is in Marlboro County. I have been trying to find out specifics of her ancestry. It was rumored that there was Native American ancestry. I have since found out that Johankin is a corruption of Jarnagin or Jernigan. We are African American, but clearly there is some Native or Caucasian ancestry in the family and I am just trying to determine which is present, or perhaps both. Any information would be greatly appreciated. firstname.lastname@example.org
-Her parents were Ancil and Ellen Johnakin. There were siblings named Hagood, Evander, Amanda and Anson.
