Somewhere among these Flags and Seals is my hertitage. This society calls me African American, however my search leads me to believe that some part of me was already here when the U.S. first came. My great great great great grandmother, Rose (Turnbull/Joyce), mother of Stepney Roberts came through the Virgin Islands from the Coast of Guinea sometime before 1798. I am clearly a documented Chickasaw/Choctaw and perhaps Creek Freedmen Descendant whose great great great grandmother, Laney/Lena Colbert was the daughter of Maj. James Colbert of the Chickasaw Empire and Mobile Colbert (Stevenson) whose father was an Indian by the name of Naho. I am also the great great granddaughter of Jack Harris Pickens believe to be the son of Chief Edmond Pickens of the Chickasaw Nation and the great great great granddaughter of Margaret Ann Wilson, thereby making me a Black Indian.
