Bible, Jean Patterson.  “Are They Kin to the ‘Lost Colony’?”  Melungeons Yesterday and Today.  Rogersville, TN: East Tennessee Printing Co., 1975.  Pp. 88-92.

Annotation: 

Reviews the history of attempts to link the Melungeons to the Lumbees through Lost Colony ancestry.  Compares the Melungeons and the Lumbees on several points: surviving Lost Colony surnames; physical features; lack of tribal culture; migration; and tendency to longevity and large families.  Rejects any “larger-scale relationship” other than possible intermarriage during Melungeon migrations from North Carolina.
