We Are All Catawba : Complete Genealogy of My Daddy's Catawba Ancestors
"Judy Martin's "We Are All Catawba" is an invaluable source for all of those who are trying to trace their Catawba family history. It gives pertinent information that goes far beyond just genealogy. It tells the story of our people. Where, when and how they lived and how they came to move away from their Native homelands. Researching Native American history and family lines is very difficult due to many factors. Ms. Martin's book puts so much of this priceless information right at the researchers' finger tips. As a Catawba descendant, this book, "We Are All Catawba" will help tell our peoples stories for generations to come."---Jamie Harris: Chief of the Sizemore Tribe of the New River; Tutelo- Catawba. "Judy Martin has presented one of the most complete genealogical works on the Catawba Nation families to date. With painstaking research and fully illustrated pages with images of original documents, this book with documented genealogy will be a ready assistant to both the family historian and general researcher." - Lars Adams, award winning author, Breaking the House of Pamunkey: The Final Powhatan War and the Fall of an American Indian Empire. "For the past 500 years the shelves have been filled with histories of Indigenous tribes, communities, and families written by non-Natives. While these cold, objective volumes are often abounding with facts, figures, and objective outside observations, there is little personal or emotional investment for the writer, or the reader. With this outstanding publication from Judy Martin, we are gifted a unique inside view of the trials, tribulations, and hard won victories of the Catawba tribe as told through the individual biographies and genealogies of Martin's own ancestors. The care and detail she articulates when documenting the minutiae of her ancestors' lives belies the singular devotion which could only originate from blood lineage. --S. Pony Hill, author of Patriot Chiefs & Loyal Braves, Strangers In Their Own Land: South Carolina's State Tribes, A Wandering Tribe: Dispersal of the Catawba Nation 1800-1900, co-author North Florida Indians, The Red Road: Language, Legends, and Lifeways of the Cheraw, Keyauwee, Pee Dee, Santee, and Wateree, contributing author Carolina Genesis: Beyond the Color Line.
