Dr. Samuel Proctor

This is Adolph Dial,)Associa .te Professor of HIstory, acting chairman of the History
and Political Science Department, Pembrooke State University. Today is August 13,1969.

Today, along with my fkther-in-law, Mr. Miles S. Jones, a native of SumPAon County who
moved into Robertson County in the early 1930's, went to his old, original home Sumson

County or in the area of several different places where he lived in Sumpson. We visited

the home of Mr. and Mrs. Troy Bell. Mr. Troy Bell married Miss uh Polly Boyington.

While in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Broyington, we discussed sone of the Indian history.

Mrs. Broyington is well-informed on the Sumpson County history and who believes that

his people of Robertson County and the adjoining counties are basically of the same

racial stock. She pulled out sore old papers of interest. One is The Sampsonian,

MaaEhxaS, Thursday, March 3],1966 and this includes an article entitled "Sampson's

Indians Once Operated OQ-Scores". I shall read the article as it appears in The

Sampsonian on Thursday, March 31, 1966. "Hampton County's Indian population, forbidden

by law to send their children to white schools, and disdaining to send them to Negro

schools,once operated their own private schools in the county for their children.

Sometimes, shortly after 1910, the Indians, thend*ims known as Croatans, petitioned

the Sumpson County Board of Education for the establishment of a free public school

for Indian children. In the petition they pointed out that the Croatan Indians residing

in Sumpson County had had their residence here for over 200 years, that they were

taxpayers and citizens peacefully sharing all the burdens of the government and desiring

to share in all the benefits thereto. They pointed out that the census of 1910 showed

213 Indians in the county with over 100 of legal school age. These Indians are not

permitted to attend (and this in quotes) these Indians are not permitted to attend

and have no desire to attend the white schools and in no other section of the state

are they required to attend the colored schools". The petition pointed oat. It is also

pointed out to the school boand that the Indian parents were maintaining their own schools

as best they could, without amy benefit of tax dollars, yet they were required to and

were willing to pay county and state taxes. The petition also pointed out that the

Indians of Sumpson County were members of the sane family as those of Rcbertson County

which had recently provided separate schools for Indians. The account of the petition

by the Indians as well a a good deal of other information about the Sumpson County In-

dians is contained in a small privately printed volume by the late George E. Butler,

father of federal judge Algernon Butler and attorney Pete Butler of Quinton and

brother of the famous senator Marion Butler. The book entitlAd The Croatan of Sumpson

County: Their Origins and Racial Status-A Plea for Separate Schools was printed in 1916

and the Sumpson County Library has 1 copy. Simpson County Indians got their separate

schools in 1911 when the legislature approved them and for two years the county operated

a school for their exclusive use seeing to it that the Indians got their share of the

county school funds. The school, located in Township, was erected by

Indian families largely at their own expense. The teacher was a member of the Indian

race. In 1913 however, ibe school was closed due to friction generated when several

children with an Indian father and a Mulatto mother were sent to the school. The teacher,

acting according to the law, declined to admit them and in the fuss that followed, the

county simply refused to support the school farther. The legislature, in 1913, repealed

the act creating the Indian school and it was after this that Butler wrote his little

booklet which was a plea fr separate schools for the Indians. A tax rocls, correction,

the tax rolls for Suipson County in 1911 listed 62 Indian families in the county who

paid taxes, the majority of them in Heirings Township. Where these Indians are found in

the county, it will be noted that they are living in groups in certain sections. There

are other Indians in small numbers gathered here and there in other townships whose names

do not appear on the tax list separate from other races but they are not st. wrong enough

in number in these localities to assert their racial status because they xask realized

that it militated against them in social and other ways to do so and therefore, in lo-

calities where there are few, where there are few of them, they do not desire to alienate

the others, ykx they do not desire to alienate the other races in attempting to assert

their right as people of Indian descent said Butler in his little book. He pointed out

that many people feltthat the am Croatans were a mixture of white and Negro, but he

disagreed with this supposition and took pains to point out that the Indians in Sumpson

were readily recognized from their gentle appearance, their intelligence, their color

of their eyes, their skin, theirs straight black hair, their facial features, their

erect carriage, their~k clannishness, their gentle habits, and a that they were neither

white people nor Negro. And I quote "these people were never slaves and from the memory

of the oldest white inhabitant, they have always been free men. There is jo record that

ever purchase, there is no record that they ever purchased their freedom from former

white men. They have never been born or sold into slavery. Tfey were found living in

this country as free and separate people as long ago as we have any record of them.

In a few instances,there has been some mixtery of white and Negro bldod,but the whites

and the Negroes have not been so careful in guarding against the amahgamation of those

races as have the Indians to preserve intact and prevent their Indian blood fran mixture

with other races he said. Butler pointed out that the Sumpson County Indians for many

generations had intermarried with Indians of Robertson County and that the state had

provided fWS facilities for the Robertson Indians but would not do so for their cousins

in Sumpson. He listed 21 instances of intermarriage between Indians of the two counties,

plus a number of Robertson Indians who had moved into Sumpson and vice versa. .......'

THE Indian school in Heirings Township was erected by the county and the

Indians, with each paying half, by the county, correction, by the county and the Indians

with each paying half. Boyd CArver,an Indian of Bobertson County, was the first teacher

with the county and the school patron sharing his salary costs of $50 per month.

This was in 1910, but their schools go back much. earlier. They claim to have attended

white schools prior to 18355Pen when they were excluded. In 1859, they built a school

for their szitdxfm children which was taught by Alvin Manuel,an Indian. And this

Manuel later became,the name became Emmanuel. May I insert that myself here. After

the war, they were provided a school for their children but efforts to send Negro child-

ren to the same school forced it to close. Another Indian school was in Dismal Township

and was called Shiloh Indian Ax School. It was organized in 1910 with Anoch Emmanuel

Sr. as chairman. Miss Mattie B. Cummings a Croatan of Robertson County, was the teacher.

being paid $10 per month for two months. Later, the school was financed in part by pro-

ceeds from a cobton crop which the Indians planted, tended and harvested as a means

of securing funds for the school operation. According to Butler, they asked the county

for aid but once and when this was refused, they continued to support their skv schools

in their own wam way while also continuing to pay taxes. The Croatans are no longer

ak called by that Rmmma nane, but they should be used to axsfai rechanging of the

uh,uh, correction, the Croatans are no longer called by that name, but they should be

used to the changing of their nane since the state of North Carolina has done this at

least three times. At one time, they were designated as Cherokees, but they objected

so strongly to this that the state changed the designation to Croatans giving honor to

the Indian belief that they are descendants of Indian and white settlers of the lost

colony. In 1910, there were.....in 1910, there were 6317 ,correction,6000, uh, just

a minute here, this is hard to make mixk out, uh, let's see now, it is six thousand

something, 68]7, 6817 such Indians in 8 counties of the state,but of course, they have

grown in population, and in 1950, there-were over 7000 in, excuse me, in 1950, there

were over 700 in Sumpson County as opposed to 213 listed in the 1910 census. Several

years ago, the name of the Indians was changed once more at their request. This time

they were designated as Lumbee Indians. This is not the end of the article but a page

is missing.

Also,uh, here, there is a very uh, in this sane article, there is a very interest-

uh, this, this picture here includes uh by uh,uh father-in-law Miles S. Jones Sr.,

and uh this reads "Indians Finance School"- "This school, Indian School

in Heirings Township was built jointly by the Indian families of the Heiring community

and the county in 1911. But the county refused to operate it after 1913, and for several ji

years, it was operated as a private school by the Indian patrons. This photo was made

during the period of 19-1916 and appears in a little booklet about the Sumpson County

Indians written by the late George E. Butler ofskim Clinton. I might add here that

uh, I have a clipping uh from another newspaper which uh reads uh "HQmeco-ing Queen"-

Kay Bell, a freshman student from Route 3, Clinton, was crowned homecoming queen at

Mt. Olive College Saturday night. Left to right: Charles L. Harper of Newport News,

Virginia -the queen's escort, Miss Bell, Miss Janice S. Todd of Goldber, last year's

queen who crowned the newqueen, and Al R. Warwick of Claiborne,Mississippi- Todd's escort.

This goes to show,uh, many of the people today that S ft consider Lumbeesl are mh they've

gone into various areas of the world and uh, they have done exceptionally well. Scattered

over the fifty states, ly the thousands in Baltimore, thousands in Detroit, thousands

in many in Charlotte, many in Wilmington, many in all the leading cities

in the United States, these people, when given an opportunity, have shown themselves

to compete with people of all races. I h also have in my hand, ma x a little pah pam-

phlet written by Mr. Anoch Emmanuel ,the late Anoch Emmanuel, June 15, 1921, Cooper,

North Carolina. In the preface, it reads Dear Indian friends; Having failed to get

money enough print the manuscriptse I have written for each family of my own race, I am


fixsk to resort to nioPs exxame o a shorter method. I have written a genealogical

list that will help everyone to trace up himself for others. The map will show the

connection in marriage ties in Sunpson County, North Carolina. The marriage list will

show it in Sumpson and other counties. I suppose this effort may be criticized,but

to those who feel disposed to do so, I mmx would say I have done my best and if any-

one else can do better, I shall be glad to see it done". Page one begins with the ge-

nealogical and marriage lists. The Smith family is of Indian and white origin. They

have Indian traits-, MAKE THEM SMART

AND INDUSTRIOUS. The sane may be said of the Burnett. family. Ben B. Burnett is a brick-

makex mason, caster, andfitme finder. The Ammons family are almost extinct, extinct,

but the white blood predominates in most of them. Jim Amons died in France-his wife

Ollie B. Annmns is a school teacher and teaches in the Indian schools. She was educa-

ted at Pembrooe, North Carolina. Timothy Goodmanlived in Sumpson County. The records

in the registry of deeds office of Sumpson COunty show that he was a large owner bexre

the Civil War. The Goodman's are an industrious people-they own real estate in Sumpson

County. Nancy, the grandmother and great-grandmother of those Goodmans, now in this

county was a typical Cherokee Indian,both in looks and face. She was a midwife and

after she had performed the duties ofLher office, she would dance the Indian dance,

after the custom of the Indians of many years ago. Next we come to the Stricklands-they

own real estate in Heiring Township and are industrious and kind. We need not mention

the connection of these people iasit shows,as it is shown in the list of marriages in

this pamphlet. They have always been classed with the rest of the classified Indians

and have been their asso, associates ever since the writer has known them. We now come

to the Jacobs families. Ihey are the descendants of Primus and Abraham Jacobs who lived

on Roan's Swamp in Marsh Branch in Sumpson County, North Carolina. Prior to the Revol-

utionary War in 1764, a grant from King George III was issued to Abraham Jacobs for

200 acres of land on Roan's Swamp-see Register of Deeds records in Sumpson County-Book

I, page 474. Later, in 179], Cornelius Sikes conveyed to him 36 acres on the south side

of Six Runs in Sumpson County. Book IX-page:,22. Primus Jacobs was a soldier in the

Revolutionary War. He was a grandfather of Gabriel and Archie Jaoobs, was kind and

XeEx free-hearted and a well-organized man. His physical strength was more than that

of the ordinary man. He was a by trade. Jesse Jacobs was a Baptist

minister. He owned land on Bear Skin Swamp. The writer of this pamphlet remembers

very well when he owned 600 acres of land near Bear Skin Swamp. And like the personal

property, he was buried iK in Wayne County. There are a good many of the Simnons fami-

ly in Sumpson County. They are the descendants of the late Grain Sinmmns jwho married

Betsy J. Thornton in the year 1843. She was the mother of William Sinmcns and had, and

has had nu, numerous grandchildren now living in Sumpson County. Betsy was half white

and half Indian. William's father was James Simmons of Fable, North Carolina who mar-

ried Winnie 1edline. He made affadavits in 1902 in order that her son William could

vote under the gaxax grandfather clause that her mother was wx a white woman and her

father an Indian. The history of the Croatans of Sumpson County-page 62. William claims

that his grandfather and grandmother on his father's side were Indians and came from

Roanoke _. t They are good specimens of the Indian race. They are indus-

trious and good William Simmons was a member of the Indian clan at its

first organization and elected treasurer of the clan. They lived in South Clinton Town-

ship and owned lots of land and other personal property. They are well-to-do people-

they are kin to the Winds. You will see in the marriage lists their connection. The

Maynor family is about the largest family of Indiansin Sumpson County except the

Braingtons. The My iMynor's are said to be descendants of Matio, the friendly Indian

chief that was made lord of Roanoke by the white people after his voyage across the

ocean to England.-see McMillan's History of the Indians of Robertson County. Matio

was always friendly with the whites and we suppose he had a loving and friendly appear-

ance with the Indians. The Maynor's are the most friendly and loving sets of Indians

on the consideration known to the writer of thisxmn pamphlet. It is not unreasonable

Mayor' s
to think they inherited it from Matio. The ~IT asm are of jbure Indian blood mingled

with white. The Maynors have many Indian traits. In the former days, they were

mighty hunters and fishermen and very expert with their bows and guns, but now-apany

of them are good farmers. The Manuel's can be traced back to about fihe beginning of

the 17th century. Nicholas Manuel derived his name from two batchelors,namely Nicho-

las and Manuel Canobley. Tradition te&ls us he was a

found at the door of Nicholas and Manuel Canobley and was given the name Nicholas:

Manuel, He had a son and called his name Ethraim Manuel. This Emmanuel had a son and
he was
named him Nicholas. He was called Nicholas-mambno the third generation and married

Millie Hale, a white woman. _Emmanuel was a soldier in the Revolutionary

War. He was the father of Shade, Lum, and Mike and Ethraim, Nicholas anSticie and

SThey claim that their Indian ancestors were the Indians that occupied the

county about Roanoke River. The Manuel's sometime k in the latter part of the seven-

teenth century and the first part of the Eckh eighteenth century married

on correction,on big Coharie,little Coharie, and soft

A dreat many of them moved north prior to the Civil War and since then,

some have gone south. The name of late is spelled Emanuel. Dave Hardin and Joanathan

Hardin lived on Big Coharie many years ago. The Hardin family of Indians in Sumpson

County have passed out. Amos Hardin, __Hardin,J.D.1ardin,and Hardin is spelled

Hardin and Henry Hardin were buried in the Braington Cemetary on Beaver Dam Swamp.

Augustus Robertson is the only family of Robertsons living in this county at present.

He is a descendant of Jim Robertson who recently died in Robertson County. She&ly

Namath was the wife, was the first wife of James Robertson. They were refugees at the

close of the Civil War and Shelly died near Kenston, North Carolina and was buried in

Lenore County. Afterwards, he married and I shall spell this, Edielizer, her sister.

They were the daughters of Bob Namath. This individual, Edielizer, was the mother of

Augustus Robertson. He is very industrious and a good citizen. We next turn to the

A" ington Family,

The records in the office of the Register of Deeds in Supson County show that Hannah

Brewington purchased land in Sumpson County in the year 1807. He lived in Sumpson

County from 1775 to 1850. She was the xmkiwkk am mother of Raiford Brewington. He

was a good and a well-to-do man. He raised a large family of children.

He was buried in the Brewington Cemetary at his home. The Brewington's own real estate

in this county. They are like the Maynor's, kind and generous. H.A.Brewington and

wife are buried in the Brewington Cemetary. There is another set of Brewingtons on

the west side of Little Ooharie. They are the descendants of the old man Johnson Brew-

ington.who married Nancy Emmanuel, the daughter of Jack Emmanuel. There is but one

family of Bells living in this section at present. For many years ago, they owned real

estate-on the ask east side of South River. J.H.Bell is a descendant of Larkin Bell

and Billie Corbit. They are true specimens of Indians. The family lived

in South Clinton Township. They are good and classified with all others you

can see in the general listx)f marriages. The Jones family on the west side of Little

Coharie that lived in Dismal Township are descendants of the Brooks and

Jones is very punctual and seems very much interested intact trying to ele-
vate his race. The Grove families are descendants of the Maynor's and James Grove

and the Carter's. The Whiteheads are the descendants of the Maynors and John Whitehead.

Luther Wilkdxi,Luther Wilkins father was Wilkins and

Wilkins married Teelatha an Indian woman of Robertson County.He has several

sons and daughters. They are all good Indians. Luther Wilkins, the son of

Wilkins, married Mary Smith, daughter of Daniel Smith. They are relatives of White-

heads and Maynors. The Wilkins family shows their Indian blood by their features and

their traits. They are good and kind and friendly and are liked by the people of their

community. Luther Wilkins had several children. His grandfather was Perry Wilkins who

married Sally Revell. His grandfather was Scion Mikih Wilkins who married Rodicy

Carver. Scion Wilkins was the son of Jonas Wilkins, a white man that came from England.

William J. son of Polly Yi3 a It i Spej eiso,

has always been a citizen of Sumpson County. His mother was a white woman, the daughter

of Robin Bedsole, his father unknown to us. He has always with

Indians and has been as much or more than any other Indian in Sumpscn County to have

our race classified and recognized as Indians public schools. He has spent

more money than any other Indian in Sumpson to elevate the Indian race.
