I am trying to find out about the Bloomfields. My mother-in-law is a bloomfied and her fater (Stanely Bloomfield) was Black foot. I want to get this knowledge for my son who is part black foot. I want to help him find out his herritage and how they use to live to teach how lucky he is to have what he’s got today. If any one could help me I would surely appreciate it alot. You know today kids. Stanely Bloomfield parents where George Bloomfield and mother is Lauena (Marks) Marchll. I really don’t have much to go on. Stanely married Viola Jean Newbury on Sept.5 ? Stanely Birthdate is July 22,1915 and died Feb. 16, 1997. He does have a sister Ester Howell of West Brach and sometimes In Az. He was also related to a Vera Keough of New Mexico or Texas. Also a Mike Bloomfield of Port Huron Michigan. Stanely was born in Port Huron, Mi and resident of Yale Mi. Please help me. Thank you Veronica:confused: :confused:August 14, 2004 at 4:45 pm #10582TomParticipant

Thank you Tom for welcoming me to this site. I got this info. to this site from a Lady in Mich. I found out more info. from my mother-in-law that her cousins are Nunez’s and they too are trying to find out info. on the family too. Her cousin June Nunez lives here in Croswell, Mi. I kinda hoping I will get a little futher than she did to help her out. She has been trying to find more of her family too. Again I like to thank you for all your help that I can get. Thank you again for letting me use this site to get this info. Veronica:)August 14, 2004 at 4:45 pm #10597LindaKeymaster
Glad you found your way here, Veronica.
Veronica contacted me by email and I told her it may be significant these Bloomfields were from Michigan. If these Blackfoot are derived from VA/NC, we may find the same pattern found in other VA/NC Indians who migrated to Michigan. In the upper south they were classified as mulatto or colored, but in MI, the gov’t documents classified them as Indians. This has proved valuable for some in proving their identities, so it’s something to be on the lookout for.August 14, 2004 at 4:45 pm #10599Bill ChildsModerator
I posted some census info for you in the “Share Genealogy Research” section of the forum, posted as “BLOOMFIELD / MARKS”

If that is the case, Deb has a Sinkey who went to Michigan, one of the Sinkeys who came from PA. I will email her for the information. I seem to recollect that he got in trouble and went to Michigan to avoid it.

This is some great news, I didn’t think it was possible to get this much info. The info for me was limited. My son just can’t believe what is being found. He is really excited on the info. and can’t wait for more info. He pestered me all last night to find out more. I really appreciate all effort every one has put in on helping me out. I am so glad that I found out this sight! Thank You again! Veronica:)
