Supposedly, either Robeson Tanner or his wife Ann Shaw were a half or full freed Native American, An Shaws picture looks as if she very well may be (I have a copy), need info on their births and parents

Hi Barbara, in your research on Tanners have you come across a Susannah Tanner married to a William Breeding? I have looked for Susannah and the only records I can find have been thru Rockingham County, VA. Susannah and William were married 8/19/1794 in Madison County, VA. Susannah was born about 1773 and the records I have found list her birth in St Marys County, MD. Yet I find no records of her there. I think her father's name was John Tanner but have not been able to verify that. Any ideas?
Hi, I am researching my maternal g,mother's family she was Doris Tanner, daughter of Ocie Tanner. I have hit a road block with Benjamin Tanner and Tiyo , any info you have would be greatly appreciated.
