    1. Hi, Shelley. Only to the extent that the Artises are thought to be one large extended family. As far as I know, though, none of my branches migrated to Indiana. However, there were several free families of color that left Greene County NC for IN, and I would love to know if I am linked to any. (And I do have connections to Simmonses in Cass and Howard Counties.) Thanks for reaching out, and thanks for your support!
