Debbie, I believe we are researching the same line.Please email me at my email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can compare notes. I am researching on behalf of my son-in-law and my new grandson. The information on John's wife matches what we have, and there are very definitely Native American traits in his family.
How exciting! I was just about to turn the info over to him so he could follow it up, because I don't live in CA. He will be pleased to know more about his heritage.
