Was Nancy Pittman my paternal 4th gr grandmother. I need to find out if she was Native American. Her daughter Surelda was 50% Native, I have a photo of her.

This is a question I have needed anwered since 1999. She was married to Milton Greene Bullock on Aug. 29, 1842.

Here daughter was Surelda Bullock Harris. I have a photo of her and she was Native American.

If anyone can help I would appreciate it.

The father of Mary/Polly Treece (bc.1790, married George Pittman) was Michael Treece [Treece-108]. Not much is known about Michael's spouse at that time, and any help would be appreciated. There's an active Pittman project and Treece project on FTDNA, and if you have autosomal DNA results, you stand a chance of matching some participants as a distant cousin.

Thanks for responding. I only have one Ping in my family and that is on my mother's side not my father's. I show a George and Mary Treece as parents.

The question about her being taken or adopted by them is a good one. Somthing like that must have happened in order for her to be Native American/
Thank you for your help. I got my records out and according to the info I have, Milton Green Bullock's mother was Elizabeth Ping and her father was John Ping, jr.

This is my paternal family.
That must have happened. I have pictures of her daughter, Surelda Bullock and she is Native American. She was my fathers gr grandmother. He remembers her being an Indian. So Nancy Pitman could have been adopted. This has been a huge thing for me to find out. Thank you for the comments. I do have Native American in my DNA test results, this is the only lace it could have come from.
Ok I am going to start with Nancy's Grandfather. He was Micajah Pitman b.?? married to Lyddia Morgan. Talked to someone at the Salisbury library, Nancy was born in Salisbury, Rowan Co., NC. Micajah, one of his sons and another Micajah Pitman owned land there on 3 adjacent plots.

One of Micajah and Lyddia's sons was George Pitman.Born 1787 Rowan Co.,N.C. married Mary Treece 30 Nov. 1809 in Rowan co. He died circa 1860-1870. Mary Treece was born in Rowan Co., NC. She died in Rockcastle Co., Ky in 1844 They had a daughter named Nancy.

Nancy Pitman born 1815/1816 Salisbury, Rowan Co., NC She married Milton Green Bullock 29 August 1842 in Pulaski, Ky. Milton was born on the 11th or 19th of Oct, 1818/1819. Nancy died in the 1860's and is buried in the Bullock Cemetery, Pulaski Co, Ky. Milton died 30th July 1898 in Pulaski Co,, Ky. His parents were Jesse Bolling Bullock and Elizabeth Ping.

That is from Eric Jame's, my cousin on the McCalister side, Stray Leaves Genealogy page.

Do you guys think Micajah Pitman was native?
I don't think Micajah was a Native American. I think he was R1b-U106. A male line descendant has tested in the Y DNA project on FTDNA.
Can you please clarify what "R1b-U106"  meas?  I am not familiar with that term.  I am a descendant of Elizabeth Bullock Harper.
R1b-U106 refers to the Y DNA type. R1b is the main haplogroup, and U106 is a branch on R1b. It is not a Native American haplogroup.
