I've just recently started doing family research. I have always heard the story that my fathers family is related to Danial Tompkins. I don't know if it's true.

I can trace my family back to 1845 in Tennessee and then it just stops. I intend to keep looking.

my line is in 1850 in TN. THATS where my first mixed ancestor pops up at. Adeline Jones Tompkins was born in NC, and she gave birth to Neuton Tompkins in 1850.

My dad told me that Daniel Tomkins is a ?x great grandfather, he knows more about the family tree than I do, I'll have to check and get specifics but I know I am related. :)

I'm white, Blond hair and blue eyes, I take after my moms Norwegian appearance although she is also Irish and Iroquois, my paternal ancestry is comprised of English and German. Tomkins was obviously English, I'll investigate more and let u know what I find.

I understand that it is with Tomkins that you have discovered a mix between black and white ancestry, from this I gather that Tomkins was most likely one of the stereotypical slave owning elite. Its funny how family stories that depict status such as position of VP are handed down through generations but the part about owning slaves is conveniently left out.
