For about 15 yrs., I have been "specifically" attempting to do some of my "own" family research. I have been concentrating on the Southeast US and certain "surnames" maybe I can help a few people. Especially perhaps in the DC/VA/NC/MD states-going back to in some cases the 1700s.
I have been doing research in the VA/MD/DC/NC area's of the US.
I also, have been doing some -research on certain "Old Virginia" families.
Self-taught, whereas genealogy is concerned.
Have been keeping my "I out" 4 certain "surnames-with a growing # 4 about 15 yrs.,. I also, do few "Surnames" -am a "list-holder at www.rootsweb.com.
FOREVER-AN "ON-GOING field 4 me. Have not found out many the "things-I myself have been looking 4 www.familysearch.org
Southern Heritage pt of "background -U will find that many "Southern "Records" R missing & a lot of "guess-work required. Don't B "afraid of "mistakes- "they R inevitable.
Many do not like 2 "address" the issue Southern Heritage- in the US 4 "political reasons" This is not me- due 2 this some records have I believe, been "missing or destroyed.

The one I found at www.ancestry.com 1850 census, could very well be her-although it's in NC. She and her family are NOT listed as "slaves" but farmers. About the right age. I copied that 1850 census
I'm not going to pretend to answer all the questions, that I would see here. However I assume you know that Lumberton, NC, was named after the LUMBEE Indians. They had a reservation right in Cumberland
In my opinion she has SOME resemblance to a "high cheeked" INDIAN. That's surely a NOVCIE opinion-though. I've met a few LUMBEE, while living in Fayetteville, NC. They were still on their "own" reservation
I didn't find a death record for this person, rhough if it were late in 2013, it may not have shown up yet- in the places I was looking. I found a few items with that name, you may find of interest
