Sorry, it took me awhile to get back to you.
I was looking up information in our family line to see how we were related. Your Peter II is a brother to my gggg grandfather Richard Coleman.
Maryann Thacker would be a 5th cousin to me through our Blackburn line.Nathaniel's sister Sarah married my ggg grandfather Thomas Blackburn Jr they married on 1-Oct-1821 in Floyd County, Kentucky.
I read in your letter that you were related to Mullins. Could you be related to Bill (Bacon) Mullins a Melungeon decendent in our family line?
My grandmother Malissa Violet Coleman from what I have heard from family was a full blooded cherokee.Simon Peter in our family line could be the same one listed on the Cherokee Miller Rolls.
I do have another source that you can check.I read on one of the genealogy sites that my gggg grandmother Nancy Adkins was Cherokee.
Where you mentioned the melungeon reunions in Wise,Va. I was wondering do you live anywhere near Grundy, Virginia?
Please, let me know if this helps you and keep in touch.
