I know its been 2 yrs but do you have any more info yet? I know charitys parents were Isaac Gilpatrick and Rosanna Small.  Nathan Gilpatrick and Mary Childs are Isaacs parents. Amo Small and Mercy Higgins were Rosanna's.

I got the gilpatricks back a ways but I just cant seem to find out who was "Indian". Have you read your dad's papers, I am sure there is good info there. Lillith was suppose to have her genealogy personally done. I would love to have copies. "hint hint" Charity's husband Daniel Bubier is where I am stuck

I think I might have our tribe, but you might have to look much further east and to the south. My grandfather was Roland Holman. His father was Wilard M. Holman, and his father was George Holman. I believe George F Holman was married to Hannah Pease who's father, John Pease, (1788-1852), was listed as being racially colored at his death in Richmond. Hanna's mother, Melinda Snelling, is the daughter of Asa Snelling (1738-1823) , an African American war hero of the Revelutionary war. I found his history in the National Mall Liberty Fund, D.C. Which is being built to honor the black heros of the war.

I might have gotten off track with this as I am new to genealogy, but it does explain why I would find Roland and Willard M. Holman listed racially as mulatto in a few of the federal census.
