Curious though cause in the early 1700's settlers came appon this big Lumbee Indian tribe and were very supprised that they spoke english very well when no other tribes did and had already been living a white mans way and some with 2 story houses, they also worshipped the Christian god and rumors before that of these Indians with blonde hair and blue eyes. Not to mention Smithsonian investigated it and agrees with this tribe. Now DNA testing is being done to validate it all. But it's just my opinion. reply Anonymous replied on Mon, 05/02/2011 - 22:54 Permalink Comment: Even though my opinion really doesnt matter i think that the lost colony went with the Native Americans and the reaso the colonists could not find them is because Native Americans are nomads and move aroun and i think that they followed diffferent rivers that led throughout Norh Carolina. reply Anonymous replied on Mon, 05/02/2011 - 13:04 Permalink Comment: some people post stuff on here that they say is what happened but really, NO ONE HAS FIGURED IT OUT YET!! what is your theorie? reply John Laney Berry replied on Sun, 06/30/2013 - 16:48 Permalink Comment: My father said that he wasn't quit sure how much blackfoot indian was in us, but that it came from 5th or 6th grandfather, and that there were 3 John's in a row carying the name berry down to denson, gus, yuther then my father william j. berry.

I'm assuming you are responding to the earlier question about what happened to the colonists at the "Lost Colony" of Roanoke Island. That they joined the Native Americans is one theory out there. There are other theories as well. Thanks for posting your thoughts! --Michelle Czaikowski, Government & Heritage Library reply Jeb Britton, III replied on Mon, 01/17/2011 - 14:22 Permalink Comment: I am trying to learn more of the practice of and the reason for recorded brands and flesh marks. The court records from colonial period indicate that free people with register flesh marks, using specific terms such as swallow fork, upper keel, under keel, corupp, crop to identifify both free adults and children. reply munderhill replied on Tue, 01/18/2011 - 09:53 Permalink Comment: Thank you for posting your research topic.

When john white,the governor of the colony went back to England to get supplies,the Spanish armada attacked England and Elizabeth I demanded that no ships leave England so John White had to stay for two years returning to the colony almost two years later. Upon arriving at the colony he discovered the colonists were gone!! What happened two them is still a mystery 400 years later do u know what happened to them? reply munderhill replied on Fri, 11/12/2010 - 10:20 Permalink Comment: What happened to the colonists continues to puzzle historians.
