I was a young boy twelve years of age when I left West Virginia to live with my sister in Missouri. As I grew up I wondered about a lot of my relatives I left behind but never really knew. Circumstances made it hard for me to find out what I wanted to know.
I always heard there was indian blood in my family and did some research on my own but came up against a brick wall. I was told by the daughter of my great grandfather's second wife that he was asked about the indian blood by his own daughter and he refused to talk about it. I guess in a way that was an admission of truth with no facts.
