My Mothers father was Robert F. Mankin. He came to Texas from Murfreesboro, Tennessee. He settled in Bonham, TX and was a farmer. He married my Grandmother when he was 30 years old. We heard stories that he had been previously married. On his tombstone his parents are listed as: William Poke Mankin and his mother as Phoebe Jane Reynolds. He remarked once that we have Black Dutch ancestry. His children were a mixture of redheads and brunettes with soulful dark eyes and olive to dark toned skin. All of them were relatively successful. The two sisters Annie and Grace married well. My generation produced some doctors, lawyers and managers within oil companies. I am interested to know if anyone has any information about my Grandfathers first family; also where the Black Dutch reference might have originated. Thank you
