There is a book titled 'The Only Land I Know' by Adolph Dial David Eliades that has a lot of helpful information on the Lumbee Tribe. It is said the Lumbees are part of the 'Lost Colony'. In 1584, Sir Walter Raleigh left 15 men on Roanoke Island. Then in 1587, Gov. John White left 117 women, men children to go back to England for supplies. White didn't return for 3 years. When he did, the 117 people were gone. They were suspected to have taken up with the Indians to survive. These 117 people had English names such as Cheven, Jones, Brooks, etc. as did the Lumbees. The Lumbees, I think, are Cheraw Indians. I still to verify this.
I'm looking for Sarah Oxendine's family around Robeson Hoke county, N.C. She had (I'm told) at least 3 girls: Sint, Sarah Kathryn (Beulah) and Repsie Oxendine. Then, Repsie had at least 3 girls: Jessie, Ginny and Mattie Bell. Mattie Bell married Calvin Jones. Any help would be greatly appreciated. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
