States: Texas: Orange
My family lines associated with the term Redbone are: Ashworth, Dial, Perkins, Gibson. Secondary lines are Mericle, Goins, Sweat, Johnson and Thomas. These names are all associated with Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana and are also associated with a group known as Redbones in eighteenth century South Carolina. Myself and other researchers with similar ancestry are attempting to gather as much history of the term as is still available and oral history seems to be the best source. Your memories of a treasure for us.
