Hi All, Well here's another twist.I just got home from WV. and while I was there I stopped in at the museum in middleburn and checked out the genealogy section and came across a letter stateing that Mary Ice was the illigitimate daughter of Margaret Higginbotham first wife of william Ice and that he always treated her as his own.Then while I was checking out the senior centers gym I met one of our cousins who is a decendant of Elizabeth Edgell and they were always told that she was full blooded cherokee. I went to his house and saw some family pix and they are definitly of native american decent.He did not have any info. past Elizabeth so he did not know about Mary Ice.Now he is an Ash and his mother was a Forrester.So here we go again.I still think Mary was full blooded indian and the Edgells have alot of indian blood that maybe they don't know about.He also mentioned Edgell relatives living on the cherokee rez in north carolina.Go figure. Someday we'll get this all figured out.If anyone has any new info. reguarding the Edgells and their native american heritage I would truley appreciate it.I am a decendant of Rebecca Edgell.Thanks! Hope to hear from you all soon.
