Yes . I think if a group of European Anthropoligits Historians Genetic experts went foward with a project. There would be a treasure of information. Pastorius noticed a resemmblence to a specific people that he thought resembeled the American Indian. Not many families in America are really documented with words that named individual families as Black Dutch. The Gonzalvas PlattaDucks NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH PlATTDEUTSH dialect of southern Germans
Abbreviated Ducks Duks in New York in Dutch referred to Black Dutch. The Caldiron family of Clay Kentucky. The Gonzalvas were 3 brothers One in New York one in Virginia one in North Carolina.. Spanish history notes and jives with French history. The Moriscos Moors or Black Moors as the English called them did become Huegunots in France.
The Bishop of London 1500s Census of Strangers named specific Huegunot and Walloon families as Black Moors.

Yet most of this belongs somewhere else in regards to the the 2 groups called Melungeons Melunjins Malengeaans. A Indian Tribe in Robeson Bladen NC now THE LUMBEES. And the most often people realy recorded as Mulattos. The families that lived in or around Blackwater and Newman Ridge Hawkins Tenn. The Black Dutch, the 2 groups of Malunjins are like comparing apples and oranges. A little bit slowly of new evidence. Indicates the Newmans Ridge Malunjins were former Black Mulatto Slaves Specially bred with Indian women owned the Indian Traders. Later freed. later recorded as Free Persons of Color.
