Oxendine Hunter
Lumbee American Indians

It's only recently that I learned that I might have American Indian blood in me. It's a shame I didn't know this all through my childhood, when I was running around dreaming of being an Indian ranger!

All of My Oxendine Lumbee Indian Information


Lisa Williams has quite a bit of information on this family:

Williams & Esslinger--I am seeking info. on my g-grandfather, Sydney Stanton WILLIAMS of Madison County, AL. He was the son of George Washington & Ailsey (OXENDINE) WALKER WILLIAMS, b. 12/1867 Lincoln Co., TN., md. 9/6/1889 Mandy ESSLINGER, b. 7/1874 AL. They were the parents of (7) children: 1.)Rosa WILLIAMS, who md. BENNETT. Her sons were: George, Leon & Wilson; 2.)Alcie WILLIAMS, who md. Charley MORGAN; 3.) Tommy WILLIAMS; 4.) John Payton WILLIAMS; 5.) Willie Lee WILLIAMS, ( my grand-father) who d. 9/25/1929 New Braunfels, TX.; 6.) Robert WILLIAMS; and 7.) Sidney WILLIAMS. For more information, contact Lisa Williams at gwill17438*AT*aol.com or at 1439 Highland Dr. San Marcos, TX. 78666.

Looking for the family of Nancy (FINN) OXENDINE who died 8/27/1873 in Jasper Co., MO. She was the widow of Wilson OXENDINE, who was killed during the Civil War. They had (2) sons: Bird Wilson & George. In 1870 she is living with Lucas "Luke" & Elizabeth FINN at Greensburg, Green Co., KY. A John W. FINN is also living with them. In Nancy's widow pension papers a Lewis FINN is mentioned. And after she dies John W. FINN is appointed guardian of her youngest son, George. At that time these FINNS are living in Old Ripley, Bond Co., IL. If anyone has any information on these FINNS please contact me at: GWILL17438*AT*aol.com

My ggg-grandfather was Hilson OXENDINE/1850 Jackson Co., TN. Census. He had three known daughters: 1) Ailsey Jane md. James WALKER & George Washington WILLIAMS; 2) Elizabeth md. John Dudley HUNTER; 3) Margaret md. Wm. HUNTER.

A fellow researcher believes Hilson is the same man as Wilson OXENDINE/1860 Green Co., KY. Census. According to a family tradition Hilson went to KY for a prizefight & never returned. If Hilson is Wilson, he apparently abandoned his daughters in TN. to start a new life in KY. with a new wife: Nancy FINN; and two sons: Bird Wilson & George W..

In a Jackson Co., TN. Chancery Court Record dated 1840-1853 the following relations are listed for Hilson OXENDINE:

"old" David OXENDINE - was his father
"Omi" (Jackson) OXENDINE - was his mother
**I believe that "Omi" maybe the Naomi OXENDINE/1840 Jackson Co., TN. Census.**
Jonathan OXENDINE - was his half-brother, they had the same Mother.
"Jonathan was 4 yrs old when Omi took up with David."
Polly & Mandy OXENDINE - were his sisters
John JACKSON - was his uncle
Newell JACKSON - was his first cousin. But he is not the son of the above mentioned John Jackson. John Jackson states in testimony that Newell is a nephew.

Would like information on Emily Holt Blair, wife of Archibald Oxendine. Archibald was born in 1839, but I have no date of birth for Emily. Emily was the mother of Rhoda Oxendine who was married to Andrew Sands. Emily was the grandmother of Nola Sands, who married Leon Ailor. I would like any information about Emily's parents and grandparents. Emily was living in Tennessee at the time of her marriage.

I was born in Lumberton, North Carolina in 1975 to Raymond Glenn and Laura Dale Hunt. My father's parents were Elbert Glidwell Cain (1914-1991) and Irene Hunt (1923-1987). My mother's parents were James Wilbert Hunt (1920-1968) and Nancy Jane Barton (1926-still living in Bladenboro). On my father's side, I have no information at all on Elbert Glidwell Cain, just that he lived in Robeson County and that he had a wife and two other children. I can trace my grandmother, Irene, back to her father Raymond Hunt and his father John, and John's father, Hector. I also can trace almost all of my Grandma Irene's brothers and sisters from this site. I would love to be able to find some information out on my Grandma Irene's mother, Cellia though. She was born sometime in March 1893 and died in 1947 and originated from Clio, South Carolina. But that is all I know about her. It would be great to get names of her parents and brothers and sisters and also family member names from Raymond also.

On my mother's side, I can trace my Grandma Nancy back to her father and mother (Odom Barton & Alice Oxendine) and her paternal grandparents (Nathaniel Barton & Rose Ann Strickland) and her maternal great grandmother (Nancy Oxendine). I have no idea on the dates of birth of her grandparents. I have a list of my Grandma Nancy's brothers and sisters but no dates of birth, except Luk Onley who found on this site was buried next to Grandma Nancy's parents. I have almost nothing on my mother's father, James Wilbert Hunt. Only that his mother was Amy Hunt born in October 1900 and that she had another same named Doug, who still may be living in Pembroke or somewhere in that area. My mother said that Amy Hunt lived with a man named Maston McCormick who was James Wilbert's father but they were not allowed to marry because he was a Scottish immigrant (a white man) and she was an Indian. I also know that Amy Hunt was adopted but I do not know the names of her adoptive parents or her biological parents.

This information is particularly interesting to me because I did not grow up in Lumberton. My father, Raymond Glenn Hunt was in the military my entire life. I lived in Lumberton until I was 6 years old and then we moved around the world for the next 12 years. Now I live in Junction City, Kansas with my husband and children and I am interested in who my family was. From what I can tell they have a very interesting history and because of that it is a little difficult to track them all down. I am planning a visit back to Lumberton sometime soon, I have not been there since 1996.

But thanks to your site, I will be able to go to some of the cemeteries and find some of the information I could not on the internet.

Thank You, Myra (Hunt) Peoples mpeoples75*AT*hotmail.com

Oxendine, Sarah Ann
Birth : ABT. 1768 Robeson, North Carolina

I have an Oscar Oxendine who married who married Sarah C. Wilder. Their children were Locie and Gillus. I believe Oxendines were Melungeon. Rene

Lisa, to be honest I don't know anything about Uncle Oscar's parents. Oscar Oxendine was born July 4, 1888 and died Oct. 11, 1956 in Bell Co., KY. He was buried in Varilla Cemetery. Oscar was married to Sarah Wilder d/o Reason and Catherine Wilder. They had Silus, Thomas, Locie, and Katie. Rene - NaiThom*AT*aol.com

I feel there is a connection between the JACKSON and OXENDINE families. John P Oxendine or Jonathan Oxendine was indentured to James Jackson and Saroah "Sally" COX Jackson in Jan 1853. Does anyone know anything about this? I believe the Oxendines were at least part Native American. I would like to find the parents of Spencer PHILLIPS born March 1825 in Overton Co, TN. according to his Civil War Pension papers. He married Rebecca Jackson, daughter of James JACKSON, Esq. and Saroah "Sally" Cox Jackson. Spencer and Rebecca were parents of Willis Phillips, Matina Phillips, Sarah Phillips, Nancy Phillips, Pheriba Phillips Ford, Dicy Phillips, and James B. Phillips. Spencer later married Louise Hamcock, after Rebecca died presumably due to complications of childbirth. I'd welcome any info. available. Thanks, Steve Jackson. mjackson*AT*apci.net

Am looking for any info on OXENDINE family from Maryville area ofTenn.[Blount County, center of eastern edge] in any time period. Ralph Oxendine jaox*AT*citrus.infi.net

I desend from the Oxendine line. My gg Grandfather was Archiebald Oxendine (I show b. 11-4-1834 d.2-2-1915) he is buried at St. Anna's church in Roberson Co N.Carolina. I show his father as William Oxendine b.abt 1875 mother of Lucy Paul b. 1815 d. 7-9-1900. I was wondering if their is any connection to the Archiebald Oxendine's on you information? bryank *AT* wrnewman.com

I found your website on the Oxendine family and was wondering if you might be able to help me. I am doing some family research trying to locate the mother of my great-grandfather. My great-great-grandfather was William Wesley Bell b:1843-1845 TN d:Dec 15, 1896. Wm Wesley served in the 13th Calvalry at Sparta in White County, TN. He enlisted Sept 12, 1862 and was released from service May 11, 1865. His family left TN around 1850 and moved to Batesville, AR (Independence County). Wm Wesly moves to AR with the family but returns to TN to fight in the war. After he leaves the military it is unknown who he married or where they were married at. Wm Wesley's children include: John Wiley b:Feb 13, 1869 d:Sept 1, 1953 Martha Bell b:1871 in AR William Harvey Bell b:Sept 14, 1873 in Fulton County AR d:Dec 10, 1949 in Crawford County MO. Wm Harvey is my great-grandfather and we have not been able to find out who his mother was. The older generation thinks that they can recall a Sally or Sarah Oxendine and we have a picture of the woman that we are looking for but we do not have any conclusive answers as to her name. My name is Tabitha Stanfast, I am in Missouri, if you would be able to help me with any information or even point me in the right direction to look I would really appreciate it. If you need more details let me know and I will let you know what I know. Thanks for your time, Tabitha stanfast *AT* fidnet.com
