    Is anyone here familiar with the Nelms family of Virginia, the Carolinas, etc? They seem to have originated in VA and moved elsewhere over time. I’m curious if they have any Native American ties. This surname appears in Cherokee rolls and I do match a person genetically with Nelms connections on a Native American DNA segment so I’m very curious to see if they do indeed have a Native American lineage. What I know so far is that they were slaveholders who had several generations of children with their slaves.
