Hi All,
    Well I have been reading all the interesting info on American Indians and have been mulling over some of it for a few months now.  My question is this:  I am just starting to work on the Jones line which is my mother's side of the family.  My great-great grandfather was Thomas L. Jones born April 22, 1799 in Cambridge, Abbeville County and died October 10, 1871 in Charleston.  He had two wives the first was Sarah A. (last name unknown) and he had at least 4 children with her.  She was older than Thomas.  The children were Lucy, Wm. H. Jones, Emila C. Jones and Thos. L. Jones.  The second wife was Frances E. (last name unknown) and they had ten children.  Frances was 22 and Thomas was 57.  She is listed as Mullato on the census records.  They were in St. James Goose Creek Parish near Summerville in June of 1860.  The Post Office was Mt. Holly.  Serveral people have suggested that Frances might have been Indian as there was an Indian population in the area and we all have hi!
gh ceek bones (Is that a stereo type?).  Anyway she is an absolute brick wall for me as no one knows anything about them at all.  By the 1870 census she and the children are listed as white.  So is she black, white, Indian or mixed race?  Any suggestions for how I might go about finding more on this and if she was Indian would there be any way to know from existing records?   Help!
