It's still a wonderful family story, and we can appreciate it for that! I can't say one way or another whether or not the story is true or false. I took a cultural DNA test, which may not be all that accurate since everything is determined through probability, but the results from that test showed no Native American genes. If that test is accurate, however, it doesn't necessarily mean that the story is false; it would simply mean that I didn't get those family genes in the mix of genes that I inherited from my parents. The analysis of genealogist who debunked the story soundes pretty accurate to me, so I accept it.
