Reason this was added here is I hope to answer some of the questions and concerns – I hope with my response it will clear up a lot of it for any that has felt the same way in some form~Sheryl has been a mentor to me – she has contributed a lot of her work/research~ Posted as written~ On Thu, Feb 23, 2012 at 12:27 PM, <Sheryl Robinson emailed me> wrote: Subject: I hope you still love me after this – Hi Coni, I read your Native American update. I feel it is very confusing. There are many assumptions made throughout and I feel it “muddys” the waters. No longer is documented material necessarily separated from your assumptions. From what I saw, possibilities were snarled in with the facts and were only rarely noted.

This is your opinion of the work Sheryl – to each their own – I’ve had several of the professionals tell me it is awesome work~
I’m very confident that it is the true lineage – I’ve worked 19 years tracking this line!
1st off you have to remember – all is typed as written – things are doubled up because “EACH” person was on a certain document – so it goes into their genealogy files also ( so if doubled then both signed or was part of that document!) – so reason for all the same info – Secondly – the work of others and what they wrote or thought was include – that includes many of the authors and such in written documentation – many “assumed” that Cockenoe and Checkachoggin was one in the same – I know for a fact they are 2 individuals – but if written about them then it is included to show the conflicts – this is “a research” book – all and everything is include in each individual that was ever written or recorded if I find it- As for Janey and Henry Bell – I DO BELIEVE THEY ARE ONE AND THE SAME and I also believe that she is also a SANDS descendant – Fact being that Hannah is named Sands with other proof of her “OWNING LAND” granted to her by the “NINEGRET LINEAGE”
Facts are hard to prove Sheryl – especially with Native Americans and I do believe I have truly done the research and have my facts and documentation to back this all up – it may seem like assumptions to you – but to me I know in my heart this to be the truth!
I’m not angry with you Sheryl not one bit – we just seem to be going on 2 different paths of researching~ This work is a work of progress – many errors I’m sure – lots to fix and correct – only one me~ I only send these updated books out to share – not in stone – much work to still be done on them~ Much of this you would of never known or had if I hadn’t published it – so if others believe this to be true – it is all in the research book – each person can take it or leave it – I will continue to do what I do~ I feel I HAVE STILL MORE WORK TO DO ON THIS! Lots more to add and will continue to add all and everything~ This is not a book I’ve written – this is a genealogy “research” book – it is written by 412 years of documentation and records I was able to uncover on this line – I add my notes to show my “beliefs” and what I feel to be – take them as you like~ Coni
Note from Coni: I’m in the process of producing a updated version of this research book – after reviewing the research book I can see why Sheryl was confused – during my transfer of Cockenoe facts that were Checkachoggin’s I didn’t delete them in Cockenoe’s files – it is already fixed and the updated version will be available in a hour~
