Mildred, Thanks for writing.I have Peter Coleman, II married Elizabeth Mahala Bentley. They had William David Coleman, born 1826 in Pike Co., KY. He married Elizabeth Ann Cox, born in 1830 in VA. Their child was David Crockett Coleman, born 1947 in VA. He married Maryann Thacker, born circa 1847. They were married Aug. 31, 1865 in Pike Co., KY. Her parents were Nathaniel Thacker and Delilah (Blackburn) Thacker. Nathanial Thacker born 1803. His parents were Absalom Thacker born 1780 in Pittsylvania Co.Va and mother Nancy Atkins. My great-grandmother was Delilah (Coleman)Blair, daughter of David Crockett Coleman and Maryann Thacker. She married Jacob Christian Blair, on Feb. 25, 1886 in Pike Co., KY. The Indian heritage is believed to come from the Coleman side, most likely back to Maryann Thacker.Do you have another source? My Blair line is full of indian heritage.We are still trying to prove Coleman side.My grandmother is a Mullins,and we all enjoy cousin Brent Kennedy and going to Melungeon Reuions in Wise,Va.Let me know if you have more on Indian heritage with Coleman, Blackburn, or Thackers. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks, Steven
