Lord have mercy. What is genealogy coming to, when someone can make a factual observation about a common fallacy in genealogy--the Indian princess who married my male ancestor (it is rarely a big muscular Indian buck who carted off my little blonde ancestress)--and get barked at for it?
Nothing the poor woman said about AmerIndian ancestry insulted it in any way. All she did was quote a Native merican / AmerIndian (or whatever-PC-name-you want-to-stick-on-them-this-century), in order to point out that we all need to be sure we have documentation before we boast about having royal blood, Indian blood, or famous criminal blood.
Now settle down and start doing research instead of hurling abuse at each other.
I'm almost ashamed to BE an Adkins, at this point....
(And yes, my family claimed to have Indian blood, too. Falsely, as far as I can tell.)
Anybody know anything about the Wyatt Adkins of Pittsylvania Co. VA who married Phebe Oakes?
