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.
