I went by what this page says:

“Margaret fell in love with Sweat and she became pregnant with his child in late 1640. The affair was exposed and she and the white man Sweat, were brought before the court.”

1/2048 black, that’s a ways back

It is from the mid 1600’s. I would not consider it too far back to mention.

@madman

No I didn’t mean like that, by all means include it. It’s part of who she is

CORRECTION: She has Scottish, Scots-Irish (Northern Irish), Irish, French, African-American/African (1/2048), and Dutch ancestry as well.
The surnames Jones, Thomas, and Davis also appears among her ancestors, which indicates Welsh ancestry.
