AMERICAN INDIAN - FREEDMEN - AFRICAN AMERICAN SLAVES

The BLACK INDIANS; BLACK AND FREEDMEN and Slaveholder Connections:

Links to sites with connections and / or resources for those PICKENS who have Black/Freedman heritage - many of these also have American Indian heritage also.

Many of these lines are difficult to prove and records are non-existent or full of discrepancies and inconsistencies. Many families have extremely strong traditions of their PICKENS heritage. In most cases, the 'preponderance of evidence' is all there is to support these family lines, but it may be all there will ever be. Strong family tradition, tied to time, locality, known slaveholders, and family association, offer the best evidence available in many cases.
