I have only recently learned that my paternal great grandmother was a native american. The information is foggy, but I believe that the lineage is Cartwright-Hooker-Dacus-Whitehead. My great grandmother's name was Maude Dacus. Her three children were Erla, Jim, and Maggie. Erla married my grandfather (who has my same name, William Claude Whitehead). This union produced Hooker, Clifford, Gene and Nita Whitehead.
I am very interested in learning more about the Dacus family. Since Dacus Texas was near an old native american villiage, I assume that Maude Dacus was from that tribe. I have no information about that tribe at all, and would love to learn more about what are apparently my native american roots.
