Re: Obama Is Descendent of First American Slave

It is likely this is so but the assumed Bunch-Punch connection can change very quickly.

On my mother's side there was a man listed on the census as a slave in SC and then 10 years later was on the census as a "mulatto" in GA married to a great - great - etc aunt. It was assumed he was the father of the children as they were all under the age of 7 and were also listed as "mulatto".

This was assumed correct for about 20 years in our family history until I came across the SC slave's bill of sale to another family and then the death of said slave a few years later. He was hung for leading an escape.

From the sounds of it Ancestry.com has a pretty strong case but record takers of that time weren't all that thorough and made many many mistakes. It would not surprise me for the something else to come to light years down the road.

Some of us find our ancestry fascinating.

Agreed, and yours is interesting.

Not sure if it's accurate or not but I'd be proud to have had a long lost relative that died trying to escape slavery.

In my family, we have 1 very large slave owner (100+) and many that owned a few. But I don't feel embarrased about it either way. To this day there are a lot of African Americans w/ the Scottish last name of McPherson, which is my mom's maiden name and also the name of the plantation holder at a time when Slaves often took the last name of their owner.

As far as Obama's white mother having slave blood and his Kenyan father not, well that's obvious. Many, many American whites have slave or Indian blood in their genetic history. It is unlikely that a black man in Africa would have descended of slaves.

I'm officially...Stroke-less.
