Hello,

Does any other Mayo family have a rumor of “black dutch” in their family? My Mayo family is from East Tennessee via Saltville, Virginia area and via? Any help tracing this heritage would be appreciated. Also tracing Rheubin (sp?) Mayo's and Janet (Jane) McAllister's parents/siblings, etc.

TC,
Nancy E. Mayo

Charlie,

Thanks so much for your attempt to help me find Rheubin (sp?) Mayo, however, the one you posted about was born or alive much later than my Rheubin (born abt 1770). Additionally, my “black dutch" Mayo family looks do not appear to be African but more like Mediterranean.

P.S. Remember, Charlie, the term “black dutch” does not necessarily mean of African heritage. The more you study these peoples the more you will learn.

I don't know what he looked like. the name is so unusua that I thought it may be him. lf he were born 1770, he could not be out of James of 1711 as all of his children are listed; I think.
