Yes, I can understand the problems with using photographs. I am not trying to prove anything to anyone though, just thought you might like to see one of the pictures we have of her.
My dad told me that his grandmother and her husband ran aboarding house somewhere near Sody Daisy, Tn inHamilton County and the Indian people would stay with them on their way somewhere to gather salt. He said Granny's relatives and the older people with them would stay in the house and the rest of them would camp out in the forest near the house. I have not been able to find out where they gathered salt.
Uncle said Granny was related to the "Andersons" or "Anders" "Andrews"...something like that.....Daddy said the same thing......but neither one could remember the exact name.
In her picture, Granny is dressed very much like a white woman and is most deffinatly Native American......
