  1. Haliwa/Saponi/Tuscarora/Cherokee Heritage
    I have also heard of an Indian Burial ground around Mt. Herman Baptist Church on Bend of the River Road back in the woods. This would be behind the Pridgen family home place. But of course no one is talking about these grave sites.
    I truly believe in this wonderful world we live in we are all related in some form or fashion, especially if you were born in Nash, Edgecombe or Wilson counties.
    Any and all information would be most appreciated.
    Thank you and have a wonderful day,

    Hello everyone,
    I too am searching for my Indian heritage through the Viverette/Joyner/Pridgen families.
    Blessing Mann is part of my Viverette/Joyner family.
    Blessing (Fannie Ann) MANN was born in 1785 in Battleboro, Nash Co., NC.459 She died after 1870 in Nash Co., NC.459 She was also known as Fannie Ann.269 Shown as Fannie Ann on the 1870 Census and living with Micajah. Information found in the state library in Raleigh, dated 30 Sep 1993: Letter from Mrs. Gerard J. Zell to Shula S. Stover, Bunn, NC Blessing Mann was a full blood Indian - her name was (originally) Cynthia
    Nation, (she) was raised by Mann.
    Note: Mann (Emanuel) was in Va - and in the Northern migration is a core name of the Ramapo tribe, Bergen Co. N. J. Tradition/oral history says Tuscarora. In N. C. - Mann/Emanuel appears often among East Coast Indians.
    Thank you and have a wonderful day,
