Describes a paper Stephen B. Weeks read before the Seminary as a doctoral student. He stated that White’s colonists’ “descendants can be identified in a peculiar people now living in Robeson County ... and officially recognized by that state as Croatan Indians” (p. 704). The Seminary asked two students to study the arguments.
