Factual Sworn Evidence

 "The ancestors of the Melungeons were a mixture of Indians, whites and black, which should be accepted by researchers as factual sworn evidence."


Email received from Jack Goins on Jan 25, 2007
"It's looks like my Melungeon Goins was also Lumbee and maybe Choctaw, so it appears all of the names Ramp, Melungeon, were just slang derogatory words. My Goins, Zephaniah,  was a Rockingham County Indian before becoming a Melungeons, he actually lived in Gonstown for at least 10 years. What is your opinion. They was a booklet written on the Rockingham County Indians in 1939, I forget the author but I do have that little book,  Have you read it. ?  .    Jack"
The Goins family identified as Melungeons with Sub Saharan DNA have Native American ancestry even though they have the E haplogroup.  The above email from Jack Goins in 2007 indicates there is a connection to the Lumbee Indians as well as a connection to the Choctaw.  


I can attest to the Goins in Rockingham County, North Carolina and their connection to the Rockingham County Indians as I visited Goinstown with Jack Goins in 2006 and have many pictures of the Gibson/Goins Cemetery there.


You can read about the Goinstown families here; GOINSTOWN
The Choctaw Goins here;  Robert Goins
Cherokee Goins here;  Hamilton County, Tennessee


Information on Shadrack Goins family can be found in the recently published report on pages 14 and 57.  This Goins family matches the ancestors of Jack Goins and Granville Goins is a descendant of Shadrack;
"Granville Goins and his wife, Polly, also lived among the Cherokees in Hamilton County. It was said that Granville knew the Cherokee language and had an Indian name. Granville, who was a carpenter, started on the Trail of Tears, but was among those turning back to Tennessee. Children of Granville included Mahala, Rachael, Noah, Roland, Dodson, Barnes, Nancy and William."  


VALENTINE COLLINS


Valentine Collins while listed as a mulatto or free person of color and carrying a Sub Saharan haplogroup,  his sons David, Oatery, their descendants and the descendants of his son Joshua are all listed as Indian on the United States Census.  Does not the census trump a tax record?  If Moses Riddle is a *proven* Indian because of a tax record are not the descendants of Valentine Collins *proven* Indians because of the census?


The time for these authors to step forward and tell the other side of the Melungeon story is overdue.
