The Pompeys came from Greensville Co., Va, along with the Jones and Jeffries families. No evidence of slavery. Strong tradition of Indian ancestry.

I got your messsage, and I have a fair amount on the Pompeys from abt 1730 on to their migration to the midwest. They went from Greensville/Brunswick Co., Va, to Cass Co., Mich., by way of Greene Co Ohio and Whitley Co., Indiana. I have some info on Jonas Pompey, including some of his relatives' claims for Cherokee Settlement money. I believe he also applied. Most of it is at the office, and I'll try to pick it up tomorrow. It is an interesting history, and connects with the Jeffries, Jones, Keene, and Walden families, all from the NC/Va border region

Hi,
The following info comes from the Eastern Cherokee application of Zachariah Pompey (#35283) and from various Whitley Co., Indiana records.
Jonas was Zachariah's brother, and the son of Fielding Pompey and Laurana Burroughs (maiden name Jeffries) Both Jonas' parents were born on the NC/Va border, in a community near the Brunswick/Greensville Co. Va line. Laruana's Father was Herbert/Harbart Jeffries, described in county histories as of Indian and French descent. Fielding Pompey's parents are unknown, altho an uncle named Claiborn also moved from Va. with Fielding and his brother Dawson. Fielding was bound out at an early age as an apprentice, andd may have been an orphan. The Pompeys were fairly substantial farmers in the Whitley Co., Indiana area until their move to MIch. around 1870. Zachariah makes his Indian claim through both his fatehr and mother, identifing his father as a half blood and his mother as a quarther blood. He further states that he is not known as a colored man in the community, but as a mixed blood man, and that none of his ancestors were ever slaves. This statement is supported by the Brunswick and Greensville co., records, which trace the Pompey family back to about 1730 with no mention of slavery.
Please write directly to me at tyaskin@earthlink.net for further details
