<i>Mongrel Virginians: The Win Tribe</i>, by A.H. Estabrook and I.E. McDougle, introduction of Estabrook's copy with added keys to pseudonyms

18 Mongrel Virginians evident that they were wandering Indians as Ab County never belonged to any particular tribe of Indians. Legend has it that these Indians were traveling from their lands in the Carolinas on to Washington to see the Great Father just after the Revolutionary War and that for some reason these few stopped at Ab county. Another daughter of William Thomas married an Ed Jones, an Indian, on December 6, 1790, the official record of the marriage being found in the Ab Courthouse. This license does not state the color of the people concerned here. That fact is deduced from the statements of the people of Ab County and from the information secured from some of the older Wins. The son of this Ed Jones, named Ned, and born about 1791, a half-breed, married his first cousin on his mother's side, a girl named Iders, and had a set of children named Jones, also half-breeds. These Jones have increased in number and now form at least one half of the Win families now in the region. The name Jones is also found in Virginia in 1746 and later in what is now Ac County, this region being north of the James River. This name is white and in certain parts of the county a good name. A third Indian strain comes in through a John Lane, a full blood Indian, Ed Jones, - Ed [obscured] Ned Jones, - Ned [obscured] John Lane, - John [obscured] Ac county, - [obscured]
