• Ila & Dave Miller's Family web site.   

      The descendants of Debrix & Sarah Miller have been traced to Duck Creek Hundred, Kent County, DE. Sarah Conselor and her family had strong ties to the Native American community in Duck Creek Hundred, and based on tax and census information Debrix was undoubtedly of Native American ancestry as well. In order to trace ones ancestry in Delaware in the 17th & 18th century, one must be willing to accept the varying "labels" placed on our ancestors of mixed-blood. This was a time when marriages between white men and indian and black women were commonplace. The distinction between being white or colored was pretty much left up to the person doing the looking, and if you weren't white then you were colored. In one record a person could be listed as white or not have a notation, and in another record or one a few years later, the label of mulatto, negro, black or colored could appear.

      "I am wolfwalks_withher, a descendant of the Algonquian People, Kuskawaroak Band, once called Nantaquak. Today we are called Nanticoke, `PEOPLE of the TIDEWATERS`. I walk within two fires, this meaning I also have ties to the Great Nation of the Lenni Lenape, `THE PEOPLE`."

    • The Delaware-to-Michigan/Ontario Migration of 1855-1875 by Donald W. Fisher

      "In Delaware, there was a closely-knit community of families who shared a common heritage. The connection was based on race, to be more exact, the presence of mixed blood, be it Indian, black, Moorish, or of other origins. The mix caused the term "mulatto" to be applied to these folks frequently, though other labels sometimes appear. Native Americans, regardless of blood line, were usually considered mulattos. ...From this community, over a dozen extended families migrated to the state of Michigan and province of Ontario in the years 1855 to 1875.

      "I've including lots and lots of material about the branches of the family that stayed in the east up through 1930. As you well know, this data will never be complete and finished and error-free. So I've decided to post it now and correct it later."

    Virtually every entry shows a reference source. Census citations are quoted in full, often adding who the neighbors were. Significant sections of some older probate administrations are quoted, in part or in full. The data has been put through privacy control, though I have overridden it with two types of data: 1) Anything that appears in the publicly-available censuses through 1930 (whether living or dead) and 2) death dates copied from the Mitsawokett files.
