Geer Family Genealogy Forum
Philena Geer b.18 May 1847 Middletown, Middlesex Co., CT & Edgar Nettleton 05 Apr 1843 in Durham, Middlesex Co., CT married and had at least 5 children. The first three are unnamed in the town clerk's records of Middlefield, CT, but the last two recorded there were Alice M. Nettleton, and Alice Scott Nettleton. In Alice's birth record, her mother, Philena is called "Mulatto", which may mean Indian rather than black, as "black" was the term most often seen in the records of that place and time for African American.
I would appreciate any information about this family, descendants, dates, places, and in particular the Native American reference. The Nettleton may be 1/4 NA as well.
Thanks for any help you may offer. Please E-mail if you have any information.
