Seven generations: Ancestors of the present day Lumbee

Record Number: 

Oxendine, Kelvin Ray. Seven generations: Ancestors of the present day Lumbee. Raleigh, NC: Lulu P, 2015. 158 p.


This book is a collection of photographs of the ancestors of people currently enrolled in the Lumbee Tribe. Under each photo there is the year of birth and year of death of the subject(s), as well as a short description of the people in the photograph, who they are related to, and where they lived. The length of the description varies based on the importance of the individual or how well known the individual is. Notable people included in the collection are Preston Locklear, Henry Berry Lowry, Reverend Oscar Sampson, and Polly Lowery. Following some of these pictures, there is more in-depth discussion of their lives and family and what they were known for.

Oxendine includes many pictures of his own ancestors in the collection and designates them with a * after the name. He states that the “purpose of this book was to create an effective visual aid to enhance learning about ancestors of the Lumbee and Tuscarora Indians.” Oxendine has made a significant contribution to Lumbee genealogy and history through this book and through the Facebook webpage, “Lumbee History Photo Identification Project,” which he and Malinda Maynor Lowery co-own. Current members of this Facebook page post pictures of their family and discuss them.
