Recently I found a copy of the Dawes List with many members of my family, if this is also part of yours I would very much like to "swap" stories with you. Please bear with this as this is a very long line which some is hard to read and was from 1870 - 1908, any mistakes are mine, due to the very small print. Number 4 E is my Great Grandmother and Harry my Grandfather, the DuPonts I am descended from.
