Native American genealogy
The Meherrin Indians were an Iroquian
tribe of North Carolina, relatives of the Tuscaroras.
Their language was never well recorded, but was clearly similar to Tuscarora. Many Meherrin people merged into
the Tuscarora tribe in the 1800's, where their descendants live today; other Meherrin people remain
in tribal communities on their original lands in North Carolina.
