A list of individuals taxed in Bertie County in 1760, apparently adjacent to the Tuscarora Indian Woods Reservation area (note the inscriptions ‘William Pierce, Quitsny’ and ‘John Smith, Conaro’). Quitsny is Quitsna, Conaro is most likely Uneroy, both Tuscarora towns. See this detail from the 1733 Moseley Map:
Some of the names here are very interesting. In particular, the Barber, Butler, Collins, Johnson, King, Mitchell, Morris, Pierce, Smith, Vann, and Wilford families are all found in Gates County in the early 19th century. The appearance of the name ‘Sarah Collins’ here is interesting, as there were several Sarah Collinses mentioned in the Gates County records in the 1780s. Sarah Collins is even listed as the head of a household in Gates County in 1800. She appears among families claimed by some Tuscarora descendants, including the Allen, Barneycastle, Butler, Cain, Cherry, Cobb, Mitchell, and Wiggins families. This lends some credence to the idea that the “Scratch Hall Folk” were the descendants of the settlers from the Roanoke settlements who had mixed Tuscarora ancestry.
