Hi brand new to this forum. Was doing research on my Mothers side and had previously came across some disputed Indian connection on my Smith side and while following that up came upon the Bearce connection to my Mother's Christie side. My Mother also had said that her Father told her that we had an Indian Princess in our family line though no proof of any kind was given. Reading your comment I can see that this was common. Well anyway glad to be part of the family. One other thing I noticed that I had another family of supposed Indian ancestors that eventually lead to Benjamin Bearseb. Jun 21, 1682. It makes since that if they were having issues with getting married because of their Indian blood they would intermarry. Well anyway that's my thinking.
