Hi All. My grandmother always told me that her Great Grandmother was Native American.Her name was Charlotte...probably Charlotte Anderson, and was born in 1810 in Mississippi per census records.At some point, she married she married someone with the last name of Slaughter and had a son named John in 1834 who was born in New Orleans.Mr. Slaughter died when John was very young and Charlotte married John Hampton in 1838 in Missouri.They had six Children, including my Great Great Grandmother, Virginia Ann Hampton who was born in 1850 - in Mississippi.
I can't find any information about Charlotte and I really want to know at this point - I've been researching for years, if she really was Native American.Can anyone help?This is really important to me for a number of reasons and I would be sooooo appreciative if anyone can provide some records.
Also, since the DNA shifts to a male in my line after Virginia, am I out of luck for using DNA tests?
