4)  Smithsonian Drawn to Ancient Mystery of the Melungeons

The Smithsonian Institution, long noted for its research in archaeology and ethnology, has expressed an interest in delving into the origin of the Melungeons of southern Appalachia, according to a report by Guy C. Weaver, senior archaeologist for Garrow & Associates of Atlanta. The Smithsonian is scheduled to do DNA profiles on the remains of Melungeon Gowen family members buried at Nashville.

This venerable national museum was established by the bequest of James Smithson in 1838 in Washington, D.C. Since its Congressional charter, it has been in forefront in the study of the physical characteristics of the various races of mankind.

When it became necessary to remove the family cemetery of the descendants of William Gowen who received a Tennessee land grant in 1783, the opportunity arose to take the DNA samples in the exhumation process. Because the Metropolitan Nashville Airport is now situated on the 640-acre Gowen preemption, a proposed runway extension impacted upon the family cemetery. This requires the disinterment and removal of the remains to another family cemetery in nearby LaVergne, Tennessee.

Preliminary archaeological and historical investigations were conducted on the site in 1990 by the Tennessee Division of Archaeology, Department of Conservation and the Tennessee Historical Commission. This work located a stone wall which was specified as a grave enclosure in the will of John Gowen dated May 31, 1829. It read:

“I wish my remains interred in the space between the graves of my father and my wife and the three graves to be enclosed with a stone fence or wall to be done at the expense of my two sons, John Jones Gowen and Wilford Burleson Gowen . . . ”

The various Tennessee agencies involved contracted with Garrow & Associates to do a complete archaeological investigation of the farmstead and cemetery. The ensuing sweep turned up 12,000 artifacts relating to the period between 1783 and the end of the Civil War which have been identified and catalogued.

Because this work has allowed the DNA examination of the genetic characteristics of Melungeon individuals who lived over 200 years ago, it has attracted national attention.

The various agencies involved were prompted to do the additional investigation in the hope that these efforts would shed light on the origin of the fascinating Melungeons. Mr. Weaver wrote:

“We propose that the disinterment of the three burials be conducted in three days time with a crew consisting of the Principal Investigator and two field assistants. This field crew has had many hours of previous experience in burial removal. The disinterment will be conducted in a respectful manner consistent with the wishes of family members. Standard archaeological methods will be employed.

We propose . . . to excavate the area within the wall to a depth sufficient to uncover any other grave markers or grave pit outlines. Once the grave pits have been defined, the overlaying grave fill will be removed by hand excavation. After the burials are exposed, a scale drawing and photographs will be completed, and any in situ measurements will be made. Fill from around the graves will be screened through 1/4″ wire mesh to insure complete recovery of all skeletal material and burial furnishings. Skeletal material and all accompanying burial furnishings will then be removed and transported to the laboratory facilities maintained by the Division of Archaeology.

Skeletal material will be examined by Dr. Emanuel Breitburg of the Division to determine age, sex, stature and any other information needed to determine the identify of the individual interments. At the end of the analysis, the remains will be returned to the Gowen family for reinterment. It is the request of the Gowen family that, if bone samples are sufficiently preserved, samples will be submitted to the Smithsonian Institution for DNA profiling. Dr. Breitburg will prepare and submit these samples. Once the osteological examination is complete, the remains will be transported in wooden boxes by Garrow & Associates to the Gowen family cemetery near LaVergne, where they will be reinterred.”

These proposals have attracted the attention of Dr. N. Brent Kennedy of Atlanta, a Melungeon descendant who has done extensive research on his mysterious forebears. Dr. Kennedy, who is chief operating officer of Jerald Panas, Young & Partners, Inc, one of the nation’s largest and oldest fundraising consulting firms and a partner in Magick Lantern Entertainment, an Atlanta-based feature film production company which frequently does documentary films for CNN and other television networks, has proposed producing a documentary film on the disinterment and the analysis procedure.

Dr. Kennedy was the author of a Melungeon article which appeared in the July/August issue of “Blue Ridge Country” magazine. In the article he advances the theory that the Melungeons were Portuguese Moors who fled the Spanish Inquisition which plagued the whole Iberian peninsula in the 16th century. He wrote:

“Finally the Church relented and gave the Moors an opportunity to leave, although they were severely restricted in their choice of relocation sites. First they were not permitted to enter any other “Christian” country, effectively eliminating Europe as a refuge. Second they were not permitted to return to their ancestral homelands of North Africa, lest they stir up old hatreds among their belligerent Arab cousins.

Wherever they went, they claimed to be of Spanish or Portuguese origin. Of course there was no guarantee that foreign ports would accept these uninvited guests. Historical records show, as but one example, that 16th-century Franciscan friars in Bombay, India enthusiastically turned away a shipload of exhausted, refuge-seeking Moriscos claiming to be sunburned Portuguese.

So who are the Melungeons? Simply stated, they are the descendants of the Phoenicians and the Carthagenians, the conquerors of Spain and Portugal, the builders of Casablanca, Marrakech and Tangier.”

To corroborate, Dr. Kennedy cites the work of Dr. James L. Guthrie who wrote “Melungeons: Comparison of Gene Frequency Distributions to Those of Worldwide Populations” which was published in the Spring 1990 edition of “The Tennessee Anthropologist.” Dr. Guthrie wrote:

“Worldwide gene frequency distributions in five major blood group systems were searched for similarity to those of the Melungeons. Calculations of the Mean Measure of Divergence identified populations from the Mediterranean region and from coastal Europe that do not differ significantly from the Melungeons. All others, including Amerindians, differ widely.

Hybridization with Indians or with Blacks is not required for the data to fit Mediterranean populations.

These results are consistent with the Melungeon tradition that they are Portuguese, and are in substantial agreement with the findings of Pollitzer and Brown, whose 1969 data provided the basis for the present calculations.”

The studies referred to were conducted by Drs. William S. Pollitzer and William H. Brown of the University of North Carolina in 1969. They credit Dr. Truett Pierce, a Hancock County, Tennessee physician with providing the data for their study. He invited Melungeons of the area to participate in a free health survey in his clinic. In 1965, 72 subjects were studied; in 1966, 105 additional subjects were studied.

Of the 177 total, 50 were adult males [16 and over]; 78 were adult females, and 49 were children [6 through 15]. A brief medical history, age, birthplace of subject and of parents, and sufficient kinship information for the construction of a pedigree were obtained. On all subjects blood and urine samples were collected The doctor recorded 18 other categories of data on each of the Melungeon subjects.

It is hoped that the archaeologists and geneticists involved in the Melungeon research will be able to address the 1994 Foundation Research Conference in Houston on their findings. Invitation will also be extended to members of the National Genealogical Society who will be in convention in Houston at the same time to audit the presentations, as well.

When additional information is obtained on the proposed osteological and DNA research to be done by the Tennessee Division of Archaeology and the Smithsonian Institution, the Newsletter will relay the information to Foundation members. Members wishing to attend the reburial services at LaVergne, may contact the Foundation office or Dirk Calvin, Preservation Chairman, 9596 Liberty Church Road, Brentwood, TN, 37027, 615/361-6384 for date and details.

You will be interested to know that I have indeed found my father, Durwood Lee Goains, after a nine-year search! I am so grateful to the Foundation and all of the members who provided their assistance so generously.

My father, who did not know that I existed, lived only about an hour from me. Upon obtaining his telephone number, I called him immediately at his business. After providing him with some personal information that only he and my mother could verify, he accepted me whole-heartedly. He invited me to come to his home that same evening, and I drove over as fast as I could go.

My newfound family and I visited until 2:00 a.m, and I learned so much about my Goains heritage. I learned from whom I had inherited my facial features, my hair and my height–all from my father. His beautiful wife accepted me readily and lovingly. I now have an older sister and twin brothers and cousins by the dozens. My Dad is “throwing the biggest barbecue in Texas” to introduce his new daughter, his new son-in-law and his three new grandsons to the Goains clan. Although my search has now ended, our lives together have just begun.

I am so grateful to the Foundation and for the endless efforts of the members who assisted a stranger they had never met, turning me into a new “cousin.” My new father and I wish to thank you for the printout of the Goains section of the Foundation manuscript. The family history, reaching back into Phillips County, Arkansas in 1875 with Thomas Olie Goains, was fascinating. We will add what we can to the Goains narrative and return it to you for updating Celia Bryan & Durwood Lee Goains, Route 10, Box 51A, McKinney, TX, 75069.

Their website is:  Internet: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~gowenrf

There does not seem to be anyone “manning the ship” at the Gowen Research Foundation, or Gowen Manuscript site any longer, and there is no way to contact anyone about any errors.   The pages themselves don’t have a mechanism to leave a note for others to see any “new information” that you may have that shows when you find info that shows something is wrong, or when something has been verified.

Feel free to leave messages about any new information found, or errors in these pages, or information that has been verified that those who wrote these pages may not have known about.
